The Man Who Saw it With His Own Eyes
The Human Eye
"I saw it with my own eyes." I heard someone say this morning on the BBC News.
Don't you think that's a daft thing to say? It seems a bit redundant to me, to say the least. I mean, who else's eyes did he think he should use?
I wasn't following the conversation, but suddenly for some reason, I homed in on this guy on the radio saying, "I saw it with my own eyes". I thought, well, I'm not gonna let him use mine, if that's his angle. Eye transplants aren't unknown - but I don't even know the guy.
I think he was a politician. (Well, he can't have been anything else; they're the patsies that the world's rulers put forward to take the flack, for their shenanigans. Every so often, the media ousts them ignominiously, so that the next lot can carry forward the same old agenda whilst blaming the resultant chaos on the previous lot. This one had a foreign accent so he was probably an MEP.)
Well anyway, just to prove that he's self-sufficient enough to use his own eyes when looking at things, instead of borrowing someone else's eyes, he repeated his assertion by adding, "I observed it with my own eyes".
Well that's confirmation enough, isn't it! If he'd considered it sufficient to say, "I saw it with my own eyes", I mightn't have been quite so convinced. I have to say, I'm a bit sceptical. I don't believe everything the politicians say, especially those of the EU variety, but in view of such overwhelming evidence, I have to concur, on this occasion.
He didn't quite go so far as to say, he'd observed it with his very own eyes, which is a pity, because everyone knows that one's very own eyes are much more efficient at seeing things than merely one's own eyes. However, not only did he see it with his own eyes, but he also observed it with his own eyes. Now I'm completely convinced that whatever it was that that extremely convincing MEP saw with his own eyes, was something that he truly saw without the help of anyone else’s eyes. How much more convinced need anyone be? I doubt if it were an illusion. I’m quite settled in my very own mind that he used his own eyes to see whatever it was he saw. (Albeit it wasn’t quite his very own eyes.)
It's quite possible, indeed probable, that if he'd seen it, or even observed it for that matter, with someone else's eyes, perhaps his mother-in-law's, for example, that it mightn't have been quite what it appeared to be, in his view, as it would’ve been seen after all, through the eyes of someone else. However, that obviously wasn’t an issue in this instance, because as he affirmed himself, he didn't use anyone else's eyes; he used his own eyes. He explained that twice, in two different ways, changing only the verb to emphasise the fact that he understands the meaning of that particular form of perception. That's what convinces me that that man truly, actually and indubitably saw something - and that he used his own eyes to see it.
And just to prove that these modern computers have thesauruses programmed into them, he might also have viewed, witnessed, spotted, discerned, detected, noted and noticed with his own eyes, whatever it was he saw. And he perceived it entirely and completely with his own eyes, and utterly independently of anyone else's eyes.
I was impressed. I didn't think MEPs were capable of doing anything, without permission from the corporations and world's banking cartel. Yet there he was, this very morning, describing how he'd seen something with his own eyes. I immediately thought there's hope for us all yet.
I haven't a clue what it was that the man saw BTW. I have to admit; I start to drift off as soon as these politicos start talking, these days. But that's not the point, what matters, is that we now know that there's at least one MEP who can see things without having to use anyone else's faculties.
I must say I feel audaciously hopeful this morning after hearing that. And to top it all, the sun was shining when I got out of bed - and the weatherman said it would shine continuously, without stopping, for the rest of the day. I know he said that, because I heard it with my very own ears.
