Most of us have reasonable eyesight, a sense of smell, taste, feel, and all that.
Yet, despite coming with roughly the same set of equipment, the degree to which each of us uses it varies considerably.
Case in point: looking out over the countryside here in the rural Vermont where we spend the summers, there have been a number of times when it all of a sudden dawned on me that the view is really quite spectacular.
The view had been there all along, of course; it’s just that the software of my consciousness had been otherwise occupied. As a consequence, even though Vermont is renowned for its beauty, days and weeks can pass without me noticing it. (Interestingly, this isn’t the case at our new home in Cafayate, where not a day goes by that I don’t spread my arms wide and express amazement at the stunning scenery.)
