Looking "up" at the night sky,
... the mind sees the constellations it has been taught to see.

In another culture at a different time,
... the stars might be parsed differently,
... with different boundaries and shapes.

Looking "out" at the phenomenal world,
... the mind sees the objects it has been taught to see.

In another culture at a different time,
... the colored shapes might be parsed differently,
... with different boundaries and characteristics,
... perhaps even none at all.

They say the animals and people in the stars are imaginary.
What do they say about the ones right in front of you?
