(From the preface of a German textbook on animal physiology)

“In the actual world around us,

there is no light or color,

no warmth, coldness, taste, smell or sounds.

Our perceived sensory world is a product.

It is an achievement of our brain.

It is not the passive copy of a real world.”

[Heinz Penzlin – Lehrbuch der Tierphysiologie, 1996, 6. Auflage]
