Put one image and 10 people together and you’d probably get 10 different answers. That’s the power of perception. Put one book and few hundred million people and you’d probably get as many answers as well. That is still the power of perception. Given the way the human mind is able to latch on and interprete whatever we see, its amazing that we find the means to agree to anything at all.
But thats probably where we have to work on the most. Our ability to see beyond the face value of things. To pick up what’s there and what’s not really there. Perception gives us the ability to fill in the gaps that we can’t do by ourselves, maybe it’s time we started to see what other people have seen. Then work together to stitch the pieces of ideals and perceptions together into a giant whole.
Nobody said it’s easier. Doesn’t mean that it’s not worth a try, don’t you think?
