"The ancient Indo-European root word for ‘vision’ is ‘weid’ “to know” as well as “to see.” We use our physical eyes to make sense of things. Newborn babies, for example, begin imprinting their mothers face in their first few days of bonding. We also use our “mind’s eye” to picture images independent of sight or external stimulus. Perception and seeing are two sides of the same coin. “We don’t see things as they are; we see things, as we are” [Anais Nin]."
