Can I trust what I see?

When I look at the horizon I can see wavy forms in the distance. They are heat waves and they are part of everyday life for many who live where the atmospheric heat can distort what we see. Some people see this way all their lives, 24 hours a day, yet they learn to walk, read, and drive. Our minds are plastic and what we see gets processed by our minds so that our reality makes sense. The visual information even comes into our brains upside down and our minds turn it right side up. Does this sound like a metaphor for life?
