The Buddha

"Dependent on the eye and forms, eye-consciousness arises. The meeting of the three is contact. With contact as condition there is feeling. What one feels, that one perceives. What one perceives, that one thinks about. What one thinks about, that one mentally proliferates. With what one has mentally proliferated as the... source, perceptions and notions tinged by mental proliferation beset a person with respect to past, future, and present forms cognizable through the eye."
