Abstract
  • In this paper, I propose a novel model of visual awareness capable of generating perceptions, hallucinations, and illusions. This model satisfies the following constraints: it is (1) world involving, and (2) energy efficient. I discuss where my model fits within the traditional discussion philosophers have had concerning the nature of perception. In particular, I argue that the proposed model is direct realist. Unlike competing direct realist views, this model might turn out to be supported by empirical considerations and it is more efficient than a salient alternative.
