meditation 6 trusting the senses
Meditation 6. Trusting the Senses
  • The senses certainly appear real.
  • Rejects God or himself as the source of sense impression & concludes they are real.
  • God is no deceiver and God is in control.
  • It would be a sort of deception if God allowed the senses to appear so real yet be false...so they can, in general, be trusted.
  • There are still errors in sense perception but one false sensory perception is usually corrected by the other senses and by memory and rationality.
  • A man may feel pain in an amputated limb but his other senses correct his error.

Meditation 6. Dreaming Revisited
  • Dreaming is incoherent by nature.
  • In dreams our experience is quite disjointed and fragmented.
  • In dreams we do not experience our lives as part of a life whose history is part of our memory.
  • We know when we are awake for we do have memory and our thoughts and actions/experiences are coherent.
  • While we take dream experience seriously when dreaming, we are quite clear it has no reality when awake. We can tell the difference.
