The difference between an optical illusion and an optical delusion here in Ramsgate in 1806
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Obviously there are two types of glass to look through in these circumstances. And no sorry I still don't know the difference between an optical illusion and an optical delusion.
