The separation is quick. When I look at it: I see a page. It is as if when seeing the black parts, they sort of come into focus and the letters/words just appear in thinking.
Could you observe and report the process of that separation?
Again, could you describe how something called "point of view" keeps you
from that? I'd like you to not to theorize but tell the exact process you can observe when
actually walking. Do you need a "point of view" for that?
I see a glass at the desk before me. Seeing happens, and then the separation happens, there is like a focus where the contours are in focus and “glass” comes up. Perhaps as a word, but just like there is knowledge what that object is.
Regarding “point of view”, you speak of it as if it’s a thing. I just use that label to describe my perceived relation to another object. It’s ongoing.
When walking it happens automatically, I don’t necessarily think of it (now when I did it, I did think about it just because there was thinking of answering you).
However labels aren’t necessary. “Close”, “far”, “to the left”, “about to hit the wall”... walking adjusts itself.
Sometimes the wall wasn’t even observed in seeing then sensation “pain” and perhaps later see “wall”.
And yes, the creation of a thing and of a viewpoint are similar.
There is a spacial relationship created between things. But if I skip the words, I can’t explain what is happening.
