Re: [xmca] perception/conception etc

Percept would be preference?  I don't know exactly but people do not 
operate upon appropriated concepts 100% of the time.  Do they?  Certainly 
children do not.  Currently I am not exactly sure what the question is 
that needs to be answered.

Perhaps the percept in the 'not-wanting-to-listen-to-dylan" for me would 
be I would prefer listening to the radio seeing as he never gets any air 
time or perhaps it would be that I am stuck inside of mobile with the 
memphis blues again? 

That certainly is a great question.  Others with

OK, Eric let's suppose you woke up this morning not wanting to listen to 
Dylan. What is the percept in that situation? Dylan? His music? Your 
temporary dislike? The fact that yesterday you felt differently?
