Humans perceive the world through their notions, yet at the same time, their notions are constantly dividing, deforming, and obscuring this world. Perceptions that are frequently taken for granted may be biassed. In the same way that we pretend to define and discipline ourselves critically and objectively. The lemon is an extremely contradictory organism. When judged by its appearance, it holds the proper weight and a sense of intimacy, yet the acidity inside immediately pushes one's senses to their extreme opposite. This fulfills my imagination of the complexity of the concept of "us".
