What statement rings more plausible "Seeing is Believing" or "Believing is Seeing"?


We tend to simplify everything and naively believe that we know what we know. It does not mean that I have an answer, it means that like most I have an opinion. What do you think? Which statement is true?

    I certainly do not believe that my eyes see the truth in much. "Looks can be deceiving".

    Our perception is such a delusion that it is an infinite source of self-entertaining either way... There is a sharpshooter phenomenon - to hit the bulls-eye - shoot first, then draw circles around the hit! Explaining the event after the fact.

    The subjective goals and accomplishments are not dependent on being universally 'right', but, as you say, they rest on effort put into them. Visualizing goals as accomplished is a huge impetus to accomplish them, as you say! It's personally valid.

    You might try to look up such topics as "Believing Brain", "How Brain Works", "Optical Illusions". Brain cannot be trusted, our senses cannot be trusted, our "LOGIC" which stands for rationalizing... But it is up to you.

    Your answer just reminded me of a couple of books I must put on my "To Read" list. "Don't believe everything you think" by Thubten Chodron & "How we know what isn't so" by Thomas Gilovich.
