It’s all about Context

BioLogos points us to a recent TED talk by Beau Lotto: Optical illusions Show How We See

The brilliance of this talk is summed up in Beau’s comment that there is “no inherent meaning in the information” [speaking of optical information], but rather “it’s what we do with the information.”

He focuses on optical illusion examples, but also uses language. How many other aspects of our lives are similarly the interpretive skill of our brain?
