To err is human. .

As a general rule of human understanding, it is not the input that is in error- it is the perception.


As I am sitting down in front of my computer with a cup of water in my hand, I think a few drops spilled on the floor.  I get a paper towel and put it down on the floor, but no moisture appears, causing me to think that there was no spill.  When the paper towel moves slightly on the floor the liquid spots appear.

  1. I perceived correctly that some drops of water had fallen to the floor. Then I amended/corrected that conclusion based on unfulfilled expectations.
    Expectations are odious.
