Experience as Subject/Object Feedback

We experience reality through expressions of energy. These expressions are what we call the object of experience. The joy of being human is to control a mind capable of uniquely interpreting, and therefore changing the nature of experience itself.

Experiences shape neural pathways, automatically granting associations and ways of interpreting future events. These associations and interpretations feed back into experience, creating what we call subjectivity. Our minds are anongoing co-production between subject and object. 

We shape our spaces, which shape us in return. Imagine how much different our minds would be without experiences like books, smartphones, or even language…

And with hundreds of billions of neurons, forming hundreds, sometimes thousands of connections each, permutations of mind are basically unbound.

Oh, what a beautiful life we live.
