Each and every one of us, in my opinion, a prisoner of our respective perception. From birth,: our minds are plagued by outside influences that shape our mind regardless of how much we try to avoid it. these influences can take in many different forms such a media, parents, teachers, etc. What ideologies these influences plant in our minds also depends on a number of variables such as nationality, class, race, etc. This, in turn, leads to bias and prevents anyone from being 100% subjective in any matter. We cannot know any one thing or pass off one of our perceptions as absolute truth.
In fact, what you are currently reading is only my interpretation of what I perceived. Therefore, the only way to truly gain an improved understanding of our life and the world we live in is to explore our different perceptions by sharing and challenging these views with others in debate and /or argument. As Socrates once said, “The unexamined life is not worth living”. In other words, if you are not going to break out of your own prison of perception, then your life will be bland and very difficult.
