what perceptions do think you think you have, and how to they relate to each
other hierarchically? I'd appreciate any introspections you'd be willing to
I think this is an excellent question, Chris. But I would like to see how you
answer it first, before you're "contaminated" by too much of the PCT
perspective. I studied perception before I got into PCT but PCT has had an
enormous influence on the way I now "look at" my own experience. I think it
would be interesting to hear about perception from someone who isn't used
to looking at perception from a PCT perspective.
So what are your introspections on what you perceive, Chris? Don't worry,
this isn't a test; there are no wrong answers. I'm really just interested in
how you look at your own perceptual experience; then I'll try to give you the
PCT take on it, which may be the same but may also give a different slant on
the matter (a slant which, hopefully, is interesting and makes sense in
terms of your own experience)

I just thought you all would appreciate this little tidbit.
Great find, Jeff! It reminds me of reviewers who would always refer to a
"controlled variable" as a "controlling variable".
