How to make sense out of a sense.

Senses are not there to observe that which is reality.
Reality is the experience you are having and you observe it directly as experience.
Senses are there to observe the result of the reality experience as it is happening.
Senses are there to watch the the movie, the result, being created as you, and others, interact in the reality experience.
Do not mistake what is being observed with the senses as actual reality.
The map is not the territory.
The video is not the event.
