Seeing inside out

What I see depends on where I’m standing. And this is both physical and perceptual.

I can’t see places my eyes can’t reach. And even what I see on my screen is cropped. I can’t see everything, but I can see where I choose to look.

But even where I choose to look is coloured by how I believe the world is. And who I think I am in that world.

This filter is hugely influential and is shaped by our inner world. It has a self-reinforcing tendency—the story we tell ourselves—our internal culture.

So if it’s true that we see from the inside out, then when are we going to ask what frames our internal sight?
