Quotes by Donald D. Hoffman  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“This critique also misreads the Copernican revolution. Yes, our perceptions misled us about our place in the universe. But its deeper message is this: our perceptions can mislead us about the very nature of the universe itself. We are prone to falsely believe that certain limitations and idiosyncrasies of our perceptions are genuine insights into objective reality.”
Donald D. Hoffman, The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes

“To construct is the essence of vision. Dispense with
construction and you dispense with vision. Everything you experience by sight is your construction.”
Donald D. Hoffman

“as Einstein put it ‘Time and space are modes by which we think, and not conditions in which we live.”
Donald D. Hoffman, The Case Against Reality: Why Evolution Hid the Truth from Our Eyes
