According to Einstein :

'Pure logical thinking cannot yield us any knowledge of the empirical
world; all knowledge of reality starts from exerience and ends in it.
Propositions arrived at by purely logical means are completely emply
of reality.'

P. A. Schipp (ed) (1959) : Albert Einstein - Philospher scientist.
New York : Harper. Cited in Kindred Spirit (Spring 1996)

If the homunculus is rejected by moving to propositions instead of
images, surely this would suggest that the mind would have no sense of
reality? Does this mean that the homunculus is what keeps us in touch
with reality, and contribute part of the reason for individual
experience of reality being completely subjective?
