MASK OF REALITY

All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event . . . some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask!
----Captain Ahab

TO KNOW IS TO BE

Matruana and Varela do not maintain that there is a void out there, out of which we create matter. There is a material world, but it does not have any predetermined features. . . . . They assert that    “no things” exist independent of the process of cognition.
