In the last post (Thoughts 8) I stated that the frames have to encompass many things, but it can never comprehend the society as a whole. With all of (societies) individual parts should have been tacked on to the end of that sentence.
Considering I have never made a scientific study, it still seems to me that the only way we can use our intellect to learn is through sense perception. What we see, feel, hear, taste or smell is the way we learn. Humans probably learn more through sight than other senses.
If the previous paragraph is true then the acuteness of a person's senses would affect the way he learns; how fast and/or strong the nerves transmit the signals, how firm an imprint is made on the brain, how long is the memory, how the sense experience is related to other experiences and there could be more. All these things are the physical side of learning, a non-physical thought process. This adds up to being hardwired in general ways.
Other beings on this earth have some senses that are different from any we have. Also, others having the same senses as us, have stronger or weaker ones than we do. The bat uses echo location to find insects at night. We use radar. There is more light than what is visible to us. We have developed instruments to detect what we think is the rest of the spectrum.
If we had (maybe we have and they have not been discovered yet) other senses our reference frames would be different. The difference in our physical wiring makes a difference in our reference frames. Some differences might be slight and others major.
What I am trying to show is what everyone knows. We all see things differently. In other words we live in different realities. Where we place ourselves in our reality is what this chapter is about.
No two people see things alike so wherever we place ourselves in our reality is different from anyone else. To learn we have to have reference frames, so I am going to set them up for our personal position. I will try to give twelve directions of perception (there probably are better ways of describing than directions of perception) so people can categorized that particular part of their reality.
If the above is not clear, please ask questions.
