Representation and Reality

Abstract
Human beings have two ways to perceive an image. We perceive something either visually or mentally. The gap between a mental image and a visual image cannot be defined properly. We sometimes draw or paint something that we have known for long and think that we have done justice to that thing. But, if we pay attention, we will realize that we failed to bridge the gap between these two ways of perception. We failed to bring out the exact thing that is in our mind. My aim is here is to describe this mind-to-vision phenomenon and to try to explain this failure to draw/sketch/paint what is there in our minds.
