"You don't "perceive" space as much as you make it up as a plausible explanation for your sensory experience, the source of which you know nothing about."

I need to make sure we aren't just arguing over nothing here (something we seem very good at.) All you're saying is that our brains create illusions for us that we are capable of understanding. Right? Or are you going further, straying into solipsist territory, saying that all concepts are created equal and our illusions are essentially "fact" as far as we are concerned? If it's choice A, great. If it's choice B, well, then we have a problem.

By the way, Aurino, last time I checked you believed in God. Is that still the case?
