The mind is not hardwired; perceptual and conceptual matrices are in a state of constant flux. Never existing in isolation, these matrices form something like a web or network within which “reality” apparently is fabricated. The fabrication of the real is a work of art. The immanent web of relations is and through which everything arises and passes away. The brain is something like a virtual machine, which, paradoxically, has always already been produced by the virtual worlds it has produced.
