Sorry, but some will be okay with this.

She sums up beautifully and, I'm afraid, exactly as it is.

Would you like to offer us a précis in English?

Exactly how what is?

Thanks for that, Rob. 

Against all odds, I'll offer Sara's precis: these words of Fernando Pessoa:

"What we see is not what we see, but what we are."

"Ces mots de Fernando Pessoa: "Ce que nous voyons n'est pas fait de ce que nous voyons, mais de ce que nous sommes."

These words of/from Fernando Pessoa: "That which we see is not made of that which we see, but of that which we are."

It's a bit of a literal translation, but you get the sense of it.

If it was anything but there'd be little point in being me.
