“Our brain is physiologically incapable of mirroring Reality exactly as it exists outside of our body. The overwhelming amount of raw data our body is confronted with is immediately compressed, interpreted, and changed the moment it is perceived through our senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell)."

The bottom-left quadrant encompasses what is mostly invisible to the outside observer, yet known to the individual: reality experienced and expressed through thoughts and feelings (their subjective reality).
