    I am assuming that perception is not limited to the
    biological senses and is not a wholly conscious
    activity. In a similar way that morality is not
    limited to social behaviour. I may conjecture that the
    reason I'm not floating around the room is that at an
    inorganic level my whole body is perceiving and
    responding to Quality in a consistent way that we have
    termed 'gravity'. Take your point about elegance.

    Blood retreating from the skin can be considered an
    emotional response, that we attach a notion of 'fear'
    to that comes later. Again, point taken.

    Light is an inorganic pattern of value.
