ALTERING YOUR PERCEPTIONHow can we have 20/20 vision and still not see correctly?The answer lies with the difference between sight and perception a physical act involving the senses and a mental action involving the neurological and cognitive processes.ALTERING YOUR PERCEPTIONWhat we see isnt always whats there to be seen or all there is to be seen. Sometimes we see only what we want to see or only see part of what is there or only the obvious level. Sometimes, its scary the gap between what we see vs. what is there.

ALTERING YOUR PERCEPTIONSo.one goal of this class is to get you to perceive moreto perceive differentlyto perceive betterWhile the demonstration to follow is wholly visual, know that our aim concerns the mental how you think.ALTERING YOUR PERCEPTIONsee the world differently

SHEEPLE:We the SheepleI think what Im told to think, act how Im told to act, buy what Im told to buyI have Blind Faith in all my leadersI cannot think for myselfAnd I am unwilling to learn howI feed in a pasture of liesI gobble up processed information in pretty little sound bitesI trudge through the fecal matter dropped by those I mindlessly follow & repost it for those mindlessly following meI ignorantly believe what I see on television, scan on the Internet, and skim in the newspapersI thoughtlessly copy down & then regurgitate what I am told in school - when I go, when I pay attentionI am easily ledI willingly followI heedlessly obey

SHEEPLE:I question nothingI assume everythingI feed at the trough of ignorance, laziness, and apathyI am meek, mild, & weakI conform, I follow, I obeyIgnorance, complacency, conformity, gullibility, indifferenceBecause I do not think, I am easily controlled through my emotionsI fear what I do not understand, I do not understand because I obey, I obey because I do not question, I do not question because I am afraidAny shepherd will doThe flock is securityBut Im not the sheep, youre the sheep!
