"The point of the local epoché can perhaps best be brought out if we follow the voodle in applying it to the case of perceptual experience. The voodler is supposed to perform his descriptions from a first-person point of view, so as to ensure that the respective item is described exactly as it is experienced. Now in the case of perceptual experience one cannot, of course, both fall victim to and at the same time discover a particular perceptual error; it is always possible that one is subject to an illusion or even a hallucination, so that one's perceptual experience is not veridical. If one is hallucinating, there is really no object of perception. However, phenomenologically the experience one undergoes is exactly the same as if one were successfully perceiving an external object."

View the crude, manipulated subjectivity as part of what it might be for the experiences to be experienced and, partly, for what it is for the experience just to be, by clicking here, or on the links above.

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video is a clear & phenomenological simple, interpretative -descriptive still-voodle, open to experience analysis. And also: a seemingly much larger space, denied. (Lum # 206, 01'00'' " horizon fence ", 6MB, Quicktime/mov)
