My response to this is: Reticular formation. Immanuel Kant. Hans Vaihinger. Alfred Adler.
We are made to interpret the data of the environment, to construct a reasonable representation thereof and to use our reason to project a creative template for future reference. None of it is an accurate reflection of reality – all of it is a "lie" so to speak, because our apparatues as well as our creativity are oriented to fabricating a reasonable (to us) approximation of what is and what is going on.
