I think, though most people may not be at all aware of it, that every day of our lives—from
our tenderest years to our old age—we live, move, and have our being in an ambient intellectual ether… We routinely mistake for reality itself an elaborate cognitive superstructure imposed upon phenomenal consciousness.
