"Every perception is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination."
-- Gerald Edelman, Second Nature: Brain Science and Human Knowledge

Spanish word: #3 Parecer
Forms: Parecer is used to express opinion and it’s very common. It can be a little tricky at first because it’s normally used as a reflexive verb in Spanish.
The best way to use this verb is to think about the English phrase ‘it seems to me’. In this sentence, the subject of the verb is ‘it’... and it’s the same in Spanish!
English word: - to seem
