Perceptions of the external world are conditioned by internal expectations, as passed through filters both intrinsic and extrinsic. One might argue that the sapient Homo will at least attempt to identify the filters and adjust accordingly. Too often the perceived reality is accepted at face value, what should be clear lines and sharp boundaries are distorted – and it is human nature to bend those lines towards one’s own favor. What is in the shadows, the non-binary? The nonsapient do not consider this. Where are you, Little Sparkleberry?
