I know that I am perceiving something that isn't happening, that is the reality of my experience when I looked at that picture and yes my knowledge of the difference between what is or isn't an illusion changes the reality of our experience. If someone knows that they are remembering a bear attack, the reality of this memory and reflection on past events doesn't have the same affect of the actual event.
Are you trying to say the circles were spinning?

The fact is, in time, the bear attacked, and you have scratches to prove that something, apart from what goes on in your brain, actually did happen.
This IS objective reality. It must be nice to think, like all the woo woo believers out there, that you will not actually die, and that that too, is just perception.
