What Do You See?

As you read these lines
and look at them with your eyes,
what do you see?

Are you looking at a screen
or bright pixels among the dark
illuminated by layers of plasma
or a busily scanning beam of electrons?

Do you see letters, words,
sentences or ideas,
a mind that created them
or a manifestation of humankind?

Do you see a network of computers
connected together, transferring bits
from one hard disk to another
in small packets?

What do you see in another man?
What you see is what you get.
