It Depends on Grandma
Sometime a Christian will say to me, When I walk in the woods, everywhere I look I see god. I am baffled that this is not obvious to everyone else. It depends on what your grandmother taught you to do when you went on a walk:

- If she were a Christian, she might say Everything you see is god or at least a creation of god.
- If she were a mathematician, she might say Everything you see is moving and transforming by mathematical laws. Start by looking for the effect of gravity.
- If she were a particle physicist, she might say Despite the apparent variety, everything out there a made of six types of quark.
- If she were a chemist, she might say Everything you see it made of molecules, which in turn are made of atoms.
- If she were a painter, she might say There are far more colours in that scene than you can possibly perceive. Any art you produce will just be a rough approximation of reality.
- If she were a brain researcher, she might say You do not experience reality directly. Your sense organs glean information about the world and construct a crude model of it in your brain. You experience only that model. Everything you see is inside your head.
