chairs etc and the brain

Its certainly possible that a chair is still a chair and a laptop a laptop to your mind/brain regardless of what your mind/brain is doing but ... I'll be they are something quite different to a tree or a mouse or a dog.  To go one step further, I'll bet a firehydrant is something quite different to you, a fire(wo)man, and a dog.  So what is it actually?  For more along these lines, see The brain and perception and Chalk art and the brain
