    Science is based on rationalized perception
    meaning that in ppls mind science is built up on experiments explained logically, experiments of events and measured data, all of which is interpreted with our perception. In other words, science is built up on how we see the world.

    Perception is defined as electrical impulses
    Where in the world can we find our perception? The world is explained in science, and it is even the tool with which most ppl understand the world. Shouldn't then perception, which science is basically built on, exist in the world? Because if perception doesn't exist, how can we then believe in the whole world science has defined? When it is based on something that can't exist according to it ?

    I guess the answer is that perception is electrical impulses in our brain.

    So what perception is there to rationalize?
    Now, if perception exists as electrical impulses, all visions, sounds, smells, tastes, etc, are actually our interpretation of electrical impulses, and they are not the world science describes. In the world science describes they are interpretations (hallucinations?) of electrical impulses. But, as the first paragraph says:
    so: the world defined by science is built up on something science itself does not acknowledge as existing. This is a paradox that cancels the very world in the view of the public by that world itself.

    Anyhow, yes you are basically right. But then, how can we know we perceive through electrical impulses, if the very instruments we use are based on our (hallucinatory?) handiwork which we use to measure this "reality"?

    What is perception, when our definition of it is, in itself, a perception?

    I agree. What we percieve may not exist, but if what is really there cannot be percieved at all, then it is irrelevent.
