 About the Book 

“The noblest of studies is, what man is and how he should live.” [Plato]“Perception is the hinge for everything a man is or does.” [Carlos Castaneda]Using the recorded experiences of men and women we show that a man’s perception of the world, is theMore“The noblest of studies is, what man is and how he should live.” [Plato]“Perception is the hinge for everything a man is or does.” [Carlos Castaneda]Using the recorded experiences of men and women we show that a man’s perception of the world, is the man or woman, is what he or she is. We find that a woman’s perceptual reception, leads her perceptual giving- in opposition a man’s perceptual giving leads his reception. We find that everything for a woman starts with receiving, and according to what a woman receives she gives. We find that everything for a man starts with giving and according to what a man gives he receives. The physical differences between the sexes are simply the reflection of a much more fundamental difference in the nature of their perceptions. Men and women are incomplete- they complement each other- only together do they form a whole. This is the cultural, the fundamental meaning of marriage- to extend marriage to same-sex couples will devalue it. We develop schemes to explain male and female perceptions both in daytime and dreamtime. We find primitive cultures right, dreamtime life is as important as daytime life. In daytime we make or assemble our worlds within The World. In dreamtime we make or assemble our spirit selves within The Spirit. In Sections 1,2,3, and 4, we develop schemes to explain normal perceptions, awake and dream. In Section 5 we develop schemes to explain extra sensory perception, second sight, healing, and the acts of sorcery recorded in Carlos Castaneda’s books and elsewhere. We find in these Nagual perception schemes, the normal pattern of perception is reversed- for women perceptual giving leads reception, and for men perceptual reception leads giving. This is why women are more likely than men to be called witches.
