A deeper examination of the folly of sense-perception, which began with the author’s “Nicholas of Cusa, Kepler & Shakespeare,” in EIR, June 21, 2013. Contrary to the foolish believers in mere sense-perception, LaRouche writes, “The distinction of the human being from all other, presently known types of living creatures, lies, intrinsically, in the behavior representing a potential for effecting willfully self-directed categories of, specifically, ontologically upward changes in the expressed, intrinsically willful characteristics of the human species per se.”
