I’ve been reading an interesting book, Rapt: Attention and the Focused Life, by Winifred Gallaher. I’ve run across a great definition of reality:
Reality is an intentional, first-person experience that you construct from the material of attention.
I’m having a hard time contradicting this definition. Though reality, I know, has been defined in many other ways. Even allowing for my conceptual biases and cultural blinkers which only serve to narrow and focus what I paid attention to.
What do you think of this definition? Does it fit your experience?
