2 Lens Theoria 2


Perception is becoming aware through the senses, an acute insight, an intuitive understanding, a way of understanding or interpreting something, a view from a particular stance or place.

Attitude is a settled way of thinking or feeling, a posture of the body. Attitude is a carried perception.

An optical lens will increase, decrease, color, alter, or affect the clarity of vision. A lens may also represent the art of perception through a mental attitude, a philosophical stance, an emotional state, and a situational circumstance. Perception requires an object to view, a subject to see, an approach, and an angle of expectation.
Mode, method, and style are defined as a way in which something occurs or the manner in which something is done. Perception may also be define as a method of vision, a mode of understanding, or a system of style and approach.

Lens Theoria is about the perception of ideas and what distinguishes the ideal perception. This is an optic mode, a thematic turn of perception, a meditation of truth and the distinguished coloring of influence. It is analysis through a game of sight and understanding. It is a method of thesis, a volitional shift of vision that forms a theorem induced by a lens.

Let there be a set of ten distinctly colored lenses. Each lens is of a particular color and each color represents a field of knowledge within the human spectrum. There would be a blue lens for mathematics, a red lens for literature, an orange lens for painting, a green lens for biology, and allow this coding process of human knowledge to continue until each endeavor is represented by its individual color.

If one is within a learning process, then one is looking forward as we approach knowledge. What must be learned is knowledge in an unknown state because it remains ahead on our path. If we reverse our approach, then one becomes engaged in a teaching process. Knowledge is in a known state and we are passing on what we have learned. All knowledge exists in either a known or unknown state.

For the sake of argument, we are going to assume that complete human knowledge is divided through ten basic fields of study. Each of these ten fields are represented by a distinctively colored lens. Complete human knowledge is knowledge in a known state. That known state is engulfed by knowledge in an unknown state.

Rules within games of perception are fundamental. There are eleven objects. There is an object that one must view. We are to view that object through ten colored lenses. Each colored lens represents a particular perception, a field of study within the ten fields of all human knowledge. An object is placed before the viewer. The object is to be viewed through each unique lens and the viewer notes what has been observed.

That object is a particular idea. The lens is a different idea. The idea of the lens is perception being formed by place. Place is physical geography that may also represent attitude, preferences, prejudices, or any state of mind. Viewing one object through ten unique lenses will produce ten different descriptions of a single idea.

Let us suppose that the object placed before you is the notion of space. If you view this object through the blue lens of a mathematician, then space could manifest itself as geometry. If a writer were to view space through the red lens, then it may become science fiction. Through a painter’s eyes, the orange lens may express space as a form of Cubism. A biologist could see space as a green place where organisms feed, grow, interact, and die through their abbreviated scale of living. An astronomer may peer at space through a black lens and feel the need to invent the telescope.

An expanded view and greater clarity is a desire that astronomers share with philosophers, artists, inventors, saints, and anyone that submits their life to a higher ideal. An architect may peer through a yellow lens and this point of view may discover notions of material, economy, and function. This might inspire the architect to use exotic materials in order to construct a Japanese Pagoda with a Cubist influence that transforms into an observatory for the astronomer. In the evenings, as astronomers search the stars, mathematicians come and meditate through their equations, philosophers ponder theorems, and artists paint until dawn.

Viewing an idea from various perspectives allows other ideas to emerge. A shift of locale can inspire. What lies hidden on one side becomes obvious on the other. Plato assumed that the behavior of things within the physical world would also parallel its counterparts within the mental world. It is not just perspectives being determined by shapes and planes, but the revelation of nuances within the optic shift.

The weight of an idea’s various strengths and weaknesses have bred divergent children. The power of talents are also shaped through the contrast of our circumstances. Small things form a big difference. The pivotal difference of strength and weakness can shift on a whim and a small turn becomes epic.

An idea’s various manifestations may differ greatly from the premise of its original inception. Perspective is a notion that could easily include fallacy, illusion, or any flavor of hocus-pocus and yet redeeming results make such things viable. Perception is similar to the superstitions of an athlete. If a silly ritual or stupid trinket makes them play better, then keep doing it. It would be senseless to quit harmless stupidity if their performance suffered. Every human being seems to have an odd cache of voodoo methods that work.

Stick a paranoid person into the notion of space and he may readily believe that he is smothering. Place a lost person into space and he may see it as vast and bewildering. Place a busy person into space and there may not be enough of it. If someone in-love is placed into that notion of space, they may in adorn it with their lover’s favorite things. Place the notion of space into the civilized aspects of our society and a savagery could rise and surprise from innocent notions. The random turn for disaster seems inherent in human nature. If that is so, we also bring that chaos into our perspectives.

“The thing that hath been,
it is that which shall be;
and that which is done is that which shall be done:
and there is no new thing under the sun.”

(Ecclesiastes 1:9)
