A brain regarding an apricot will register the fruit's appearance by recording a yellow-orange fruit-oval in the cinema of its memory. There are two apricots: the apricot itself and the apricot-in-the-brain. A brain cannot swallow an apricot directly of course, it must send out a pair of eyeballs to taste reflections of scattered light. The eyes sip orange and yellow light, tasting the apricot color of the apricot indirectly. Chemicals in the eyes send signals to the brain. The brain translates these signals into a document of that experience and etches an image of the apricot into its structure like a memory metal or a mirror of molten glass, wrapping its tissue to conform to what its antennae have been pressed up against. The brain snaps a photograph and when the apricot has vanished, its image in the mind remains. There are two apricots: the apricot itself and the apricot-in-the-brain.
