BEEPS AND BLIPS FROM OUTERSPACE
UMWELT

"Umwelt is the idea that because their senses pick up on different things, different animals in the same ecosystem actually live in very different worlds. Everything about you shapes the world you inhabit--from your ideology to your glasses prescription to your browser window size." --Randall Munroe (xkcd)

the idea can be found in Russell's The Problems of Philosophy
