    Well yes. I am in agreement with the statement from a psychological point of view. But what does this got to do with photography?

    Ever heard the anecdote of the boy who grows up locked in a cave surrounded by complete darkness, and doesn't find it odd because he has never known anything else, or experienced a greater form of freedom? It's pretty similar to what this means. We cannot comprehend what we haven't experienced.

    I did a paper on Perception just a couple of weeks ago. Google is your friend. There's a treasure trove on this subject available on line.
