What else you can see?
Move your mouse over the picture, without clicking and wait until the second layer is loaded.
The white lines will give you just an IDEA, there is much more in.
If you move the mouse out of the picture area, the first layer appears again.

Perception of Reality
We tend to believe, that what we see is real...
I can see it, therefore it is...
I see it blue, therefore it is blue...
Hmm, what if that is not true?
What if you just "believe" that you can see the things the "way they are"?
What if it is true, that every being on this planet sees the things quite a little bit (or more, or totally) different than you?
What if it is true, that things just "appear" to you, depending on your physical condition, education, life experience, social surrounding, personal mind set and belief system?
What if it is true, that things change their appearance according to your thoughts?
Well, if all that is true, then you DON'T see how "things really are" but rather how you create your own reality. It is merely your perception of your own reality.
Two people are watching the sky: the sad person sees sad scenarios in the clouds, and the happy person sees happy scenarios in the very same clouds - that's just the way it is - your inner situation and condition will be reflected in the outer world. This world surrounding you is the mirrow which you've created (consciously or unconsciously): reflecting back of who and what you are.
...So that you can change what you don't like...
