"I'm not trying to paint what I see, I'm trying to paint what I perceive."
There is no truth, only a perception of truth. There is no reality, only a perception of reality. And Khwampa considers forms as a basic unit in the practice and study of perception. From organic to inorganic, from homogenous to heterogeneous, from amorphous to crystalline, forms are everywhere.
We as human beings navigate the system, make it recognizable by memorizing forms and placement of forms. Placement of forms in space and with respect to each other, which we call in general terms, composition, which is an important factor in terms of how we perceive and recognize our reality.
Further on, perception is not just a result of seeing but is a collaborative result of all the senses that initiates, processes, bypasses, and assists the process of perceiving. Where our brain act as in terms of memory, act as a database to set a relative reference for this act.
But what happens when there is no relative reference for any form? What happens when the form couldn’t introduce itself? That is the time when we truly and most certainly perceive. And in this way we can easily draw the fine line between perception and seeing.
The form was the beginning of all illusion, and the form will be the destruction of all illusions.
