Drop the belief that perception is a valid form of cognition!

Perception is 'self'-centered: move your focus point, and it will affect the perceived 'properties' of the image below —which parts move, which part doesn't.
 
Perception is already an 'interpretation' and a manifestation of your belief system. You constructed such a belief system from your early days, making inferences and correlating properties (while rather arbitrarily deciding what was foreground and relevant vs. what was background and discarded as 'context' —without much after-thought on how context matters).

Drop the belief that perception is a a valid form of cognition!
Drop the certainties.
Don't know!
