Seeing Clearly II

Okay, so we're paying attention now, right?  

So how clearly do we see?  What is real?  Is what our brain telling us accurate?  Or is it a shorthand perception-- a quick glance, a quick assessment, a quick conclusion which is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Our temple's Dharma Talk today was about right view.  Much of the talk centered on perspective and understanding as a critical part of right view.  But is not "no shortcuts" part of right view as well?
