Are there other instances where hOTI is used as the relative pronoun "that
(which)"? I would take the hOTI clause as a sort of noun clause, which
defines what the person is seeing. So I would have:
I see men that I perceive [them] walking like trees.
Here I take the particiciple as predicative not as attributive, following
Carl's well argued thesis.
