Fair enough, Chief.
But....I find "accept it for what it is" intriguing and maybe questionable. Even in the moment of receiving a perception and just experiencing it "For What It Is", you are still experiencing a perhaps "unconscious" mobilization of the cognitive state of "this is how things are".
We also are not merely passive recipients of things around us and self sustain via osmosis. We aggressively pursue, try to alter and rearrange things, aim to accomplish agendas, restrict things that cause us distress. If aliens landed on earth and proceeded to enter into your room and touch you, you MIGHT have pretty close to a pure perception at this moment, because no earth based mental constructs could encompass what you are seeing and experiencing before you, so it would be pure perception with your mind frantically trying to categorize and catch up, but inevitably lag behind and fail, in which case perception triumphs in this case.
