Actually, my use of the term template reminded me of something else I had written... and it was our tendency to intellectualise and replace the experience of a thing itself with an idea of the thing.Nice. Although, for me, since we don't really interact with objects directly but concepts of it, it would be "uses previously stored templates to reconcile the concept of the object with the self." So it's a bit like self-interaction via concepts + random input from the outside(random, because that input is still to be perceived and is necessarily manipulated by the physical, chemical and biological processes of our organs). What do you think of the complication I inserted?
And, you did use the term concept. So it may be that this use of templates is actually Thinking rather than Sensing.
So, I will have to rethink how to describe sensing. When the inspiration comes...
Perhaps, perhaps. What do you suggest as an alternative?Or maybe the old is totally wrong or misleading? or maybe the new is totally wrong or misleading?
