Robert Anton Wilson's work precedes the "scientific" truth by decades...

You see, view and interpret in the way that your culture has brainwashed you to see, view and interpret. Doesn't make it the "truth."

Can culture dictate the way we see? - being-human - 04 May 2007 - New Scientist:
"Culture can shape your view of the world, the saying goes. And it might be more than just a saying: a new study suggests that culture may shape the way our brains process visual information.

Researchers found that the brains of older East Asian people respond less strongly to changes in the foreground of images than those of their Western counterparts. They suggest this difference is due to an increased emphasis on the background, or context, of images in some Asian cultures."
