What a thing is and what it means are not separate, the former being physical and the latter mental as we are accustomed to believe.

James Jerome Gibson was an American psychologist, born in McConnelsville, Ohio, who received his Ph.D. from Princeton University's Department of Psychology, and is considered one of the most important 20th century psychologists in the field of visual perception. In his classic work The Perception of the Visual World he rejected the then fashionable theory of behaviorism for a view based on his own experimental work, which pioneered the idea that animals 'sampled' information from the 'ambient' outside world. He studied the concept of optical flow. According to Gibson, one determines the optical flow using the pattern of light on the retina.
