Aside bit: Perspectives…you know, that’s the name of the post…oh, yeah…that’s funny…
Meaningful bit: So I’ve realized this a few times at least, but I don’t think I’ve ever tried to capture it here…basically the awesome nature of subjectivity. Everyone goes through their lives – I think, at least – thinking what they think, believing what they believe, feeling what they feel…and everyone thinks that their own beliefs and opinions are “right”, everyone else just “doesn’t quite get it.”
But think about it…every person that has ever lived has had a perception that was at least the tiniest fraction different from every other person that has ever lived.
So don’t be so sure that your perspective is always “the right one.” Because everyone thinks that, and everyone is wrong.
“Herodotus asserts that if the Persians decided something while drunk, they made a rule to reconsider it when sober. Authors after Herodotus have added that if the Persians made a decision while sober, they made a rule to reconsider it when they were drunk.”
