Our human interface with reality

“A brilliant expose of why life really is just an illusion”

This book is a compelling read which explores the dichotomy between the detail rich sensory world we experience, and our actual ability to experience it in real time. It turns out, most of the time we are making it up, albeit based on our personal historical docudrama! There are many revealing stories and documented examples, backed up with references, which illustrate how exactly we experience and learn, and including some great suggestions for experiments in seeing that the reader can try. In the same way Carl Sagan led you through a journey through the 'Cosmos, Richard Epworth will take you on a personal tour of the human bottleneck, our ability to sense and learn, and the implications for the human condition.
