We view the world through a variety of windows: real vistas, windows-images, our memories. The window always marks a threshold between the inside and outside, which (unlike the door) is usually only permeable to light and vision, not to the body. By looking through the glass, we think we are witnessing reality. We contrast what is real to that which is merely (re)presented, as if one were always at hand and the other intangible. Certainly, events are always tangible, but the inner context of these events and how we perceive them are only constructions of our ideas.
