Your perception of the world is ... really a fabrication of your model of the world. —Jeff Hawkins
Conscious perception is, in a sense, a con job of the brain. It suggests there's a stable world out there and there's a very simple relationship between what's out there in the world and what's inside our head but in fact it's a very complicated relationship. It's actively constructed by our brain. We're now beginning to understand that what I see in my head is actually constructed by my head, by my neurons.—Christof Koch
Predictability is the very definition of reality.—Jeff Hawkins
