The Persistance of Memory by Salvador Dali

Interstices of time can be like memories to the extent they’re non sequiturs. Reality as a continuity is akin to Godard’s "film is truth 24 frames a second and every cut is a lie." In much the way that the mind consolidated vision (between two eyes) and memory it also produces a picture or narrative. Naturally with no perceiving consciousness you're left with the old paradigm of the leaf falling in the forest and no one there to see it. Who is to know if there's any noumenal existence? It’s also mere conjecture that you're in collective agreement about the colors of the spectrum or Greenwich Mean Time or that “life” was any more than an evanescent dream after you’ve departed it.
