Perception is just that.

Standard

When I worked at a preschool in Lansing my boss would play the same cd every day. There was a song with a line that I could’ve sworn said “God, you shed Your blood on Calvary.” But I’m fairly certain that the song wasn’t even in English. Even still, that’s all I could hear on that line and it’s because I was filtering the music through my Jesus-music filled mind. 
I can think of countless examples like this where I see or hear things that aren’t really there, but they seem real in my mind because they are associated with something I have an actual memory of that is triggered by what’s really there. 

Is begs the question, is perception really reality?
