Perception is myriad and manifold. If you think a choice between two different colored pills is a good metaphor for how one comes to see clearly vs. how one chooses to remain indoctrinated, then you must have taken the wrong pill.
Experience is myriad and manifold. Intellectuals make excuses for bad art. They say there is no mediocre art (which they call a "text") just mediocre ways of thinking about it. I say that is a mediocre way to think about it.
