Perception

  1. We can never understand another’s perception of a landscape until we experience it ourselves.
  2. Two people can never experience a landscape in exactly the same way.
  3. We can only be truly objective when viewing landscape from a distance.
  4. To understand someone is to understand where they come from.
  5. Our subjectivity is what limits us from experiencing the external world to the fullest.
  6. Our perception of the landscape is constantly changing.

Memories

  1. Memories distort our view of the external world.
  2. Memories are designed to suppress the hostility of natural landscapes.
  3. Our memories help us make connections with new landscapes.
  4. Our memories of a landscape can be liberating or stifling.
  5. The memories of a landscape remain with us forever.
  6. We can latch onto past landscapes and refuse those in the present day.
  7. It is our memories that help us connect to the natural world.

Imagination

  1. The physical elements of landscape provide a foundation for our imagination.
  2. Our unfamiliarity with a landscape is what powers our imagination.
  3. Landscapes change over time but our imagination does not.
  4. All landscapes are the same. It is the power of our imagination that gives them meaning.
  5. Our imaginations can be shattered by the harsh reality of a landscape.
  6. Whether a landscape is real or imagined is irrelevant. It is what we experience that matters.
  7. Our imagination is limiting. It draws us into a world of delusion.
  8. The physical landscape and our imaginations are mutually exclusive.
  9. We use imagination to conceal our fears of the external world.

People

  11. The more landscapes we encounter, the more we understand the world and ourselves.
  12. Our behaviour is influenced by the changing landscape around us.

  14. The more landscapes we encounter, the less we need to imagine
