Perception and Fake Guns

Compare the following arguments…

1) Veridical perception of an orange and a hallucination of an orange have something in common, call it a “seeming”. We should thus explain veridical perception in terms of such “seemings. (Also: we should explain knowledge of oranges in the same seeming-based way)

2) A real gun and a fake gun have something in common, call it “surface appearance”. We should thus explain real guns in terms of “surface appearance”.
