03. Perception and Reality (Naïve, Indirect, Direct):

1. What is it that is real?
2. Is the seeing (or the hearing, or the touching, …, i.e., the perceiving) making it real?
3. When one perceives, what is it that one is perceiving?
4. Can perceiving be deceiving?
5. Why is perception ~often~ said to be indirect, ~sometimes~ said to be naïve, and ~rarely~ said to be direct?
