Exactly my point. If a person perceives a light change differently than
another person, they might risk running might cause an
accident - do we say that the light change caused the accident? Of course
not.....did the accident occur - abslutely! Why? The person honestly
perceived the light change differently. That's precisely why actual
and/or measurable physical evidence has no bearing on the unmeasurable
and/or actual way the perception is enacted in the performance. They are
linked - they can't be separated.
