What is Distortion?
Distortion is the process which allows us to make shifts in our experience of sensory data. Distortion is the process of bringing in information through your senses and then playing with that information in your mind to create new concepts, ideas and understandings. Different ways of thinking about the world, philosophy, spirituality, religion, ideology, fantasising about a lover, creating new inventions, writing fiction and producing films all rely upon the ability to distort so called reality. The ability to play with thoughts in your mind allows you to build goals of the future - a future that causes you pain or pleasure.
Types of Distortions include - Mind Reading, Performative, Cause and Effect, Complex Equivalence, Presuppositions
