Unseen because not perceived

The landscapes I have in mind are not some part of the unseen world in the psychic sense, nor are they part of the unconscious. They belong to the world that lies visibly about us. They are unseen merely because they are not perceived: only in that way can they be regarded as invisible.
-- Paul Nash, quoted by Robert Macfarlane in an introduction of Nature Near London by Richard Jefferies
