Neuro-physiology of Perception

Neurophysiology of perception is the condition where by depending on the perception or rather the initial view about something determines our judgement when the situation becomes real. Philosophical issues according to my understanding are some philosophy questions unproven or are in the process of being proven a typical example of a philosophical issue is the question of, do God exist. People will have different views about these but no one can be certain that his thought is true. A thought experiment is the theory or principle for thinking through the results or consequences, which in this case is a story (Fransen et al, 15). A thought example can therefore be explained as the device for performing unintentional intellectual deliberation to speculate the results of it.

Thought experiments always show the possible outcomes of a principle question. An example of a thought experiment is the Galileo has thought in which he said that two objects fall at the same speed despite their difference in weight. By this Galileo meant that all conditions being constant like friction of the atmosphere, two objects fall at the same time. Armstrong confirms this when he visits the moon and lets a hammer and a feather fall and both reached the ground at same time. This experiment example connects to Plato’s cave in that Plato talks of human beings being in a cave where they can see things in bigger ways. From Galileo’s thought experiment, we see him thinks in a much bigger way by saying things fall at same speed despite weight difference when friction eliminated (Fransen et al, 15). This example connects to Descartes demon theory in that the thought looks like delusion to human beings unless they think outside the box. Just a common human being cannot believe Aristotle just like Descartes never believed the demon. Descartes preposition provides the foundation for his knowledge theory in that it expands ones thinking capacity and makes him believe that despite the fact that you have been thinking in the same way with another person whole your life, everything same including experiences, it doesn’t justify you two being different in the future. Justified true belief is used to define knowledge as a process of approving conditions or statements. It gained approval and where justifiable was said to the process of standing out to reveal the truth. It says that for one to believe that something is true, he must have a preposition or rather a reason for doing so.
