Perception is vitally important to the description of how our perspective alters. It is through the activity of relationships rather than through the activity of boundaried entities we might call agents that we operate. We can hold this in our consciousness and create an observational space – this is our only agency – but we are always reacting to the patterns that we could make sense of before. We are always looking over our shoulders to make sense of now. We are agents of the past, telling ourselves stories to weave our experience into a narrative. While it is happening, we have no frame of reference, though. We create a frame by reviewing threads and relationships and creating patterns.
