Probably like nothing we see. If you take away the human perception, you take away the limitations of our senses. Humans can only see a fraction of the wavelengths of color, so seeing the world as it truely is would be very different than how we see it.

I don't think many animals see that much more than we do. Although I know that there are animals that definitely can

It's not even just the physical changes though. All our emotional and mental attachments we have on the things around us change our perception on whatever we are looking at. Like even if I went out in the middle of nature, stood on top of a mountain and overlooked nothing but ocean I still wouldn't be able to see it with the emptiness or absolute reality that the writer is talking about. But then like you said it's even more of a mind fuck because not only do we mentally see it different but also physically. It just shows how mother fucking complex the world is. It's so fucking awesome. It really is fucking stupendous

we can't even comprehend what everything actually looks like. imagine being able to see atoms while at the same time being able to see galaxies. even attempting to comprehend the fourth dimension is difficult. we are so limited by our 5 senses. that's exactly why i don't like when people think they know exactly what's going on in the universe, whether they are religious or not. we're so insignificant; who are we to even pretend to know what all this is? anyway, sweet highdea man it looks like this site is making a comeback.

(as in a raw universe doesn't exist/is incomprehensible to us anyway, at least in my opinion)

we would probably evolve into a higher consciousness. no pun intended.

Without the bias of perception, we're left with true reality. That's why having convictions and preconceived notions can be so harmful. No human knows true reality so how can we speak definitively about it, much less condemn others for not agreeing? All of our bodies have slight differences, so all of our personal "realities" do as well.

You're right! it is only an observation, we live in this world filled with hypocrite and ignorant human beings, they all need marijuana to help them understand how things can go way smoother in life...

Life would be so plain. We'd look at the sky and say that's the sky. We'd see flowers and they'd just be flowers. Nothing special. We wouldn't appreciate marijuana either, it'd be just another plant. I don't think we'd even have friends. We'd walk right past each other uninterested in getting to know one another because we're just aimlessly living. We wouldn't see someone and say, hey they look cool lemme go sit next to them. We would look at them and that's it no opinion to form an action.

It wouldn't look like anything, what we see is just wave of light entering our eye hitting photosensitive cells which send message to our brain which processes it and creates the image you see. It's just a picture in our minds.
Our senses are just an interpretation of whats out there.

You'll like constructivism: "the view that reality, and the methods we use to understand it, are man made, subjective constructions rather than an objective reading of events"

Envisioning the universe raw.

Assumptionts: We are ourselves, and without that existence we are nothing. We are innately made with bias and opinion that impedes us from completely eliminating the subjective in observation.

I believe that this subjectivity is a significant influence on how we think and see, that the amount of hinderance by subjectivity in viewing the universe raw is very large. How fucking cool would it to have a microscope that can limit the amount of subjectivity in what is observed. To think, can science reach that point?

They've actually found that there is no way that the world is as we experience it. Even if humans were unbiased in opinion, we still wouldn't see the world the way it actually is. I believe they call the world we experience the phaneron. Something like that. Our senses aren't perfect, so they can't pick up on everything there is around us, and our brains aren't perfect either, so I would assume that it leaves some stuff out that our senses send to it, and by the time we're experiencing it, it's totally different. I mean, we actually see upside down, and then our brain flips it rightside up. I wonder what else gets changed around like that...I wonder if there are beings around that we can't even see. Crazy shit.

Just like Plato's allegory of the cave, there is absolutely no way to view the universe from a non limited perspective. Because there would always be some sort of filter, even "God's eye" would be a filter.
