What do you see? How do you see it? How can you explain it to others?
I’ve just been thinking about people who don’t necessarily have the same level of communication skills as others and who often get misread or misinterpreted as a result. Some people with are wired in noticeably different ways and don’t fit in as well as others. Some are labelled stupid since they refuse to recognize academia as a valid measure of smartness. Others are smart in the eyes of society and yet can’t see even the simplest things in front of them.
How we register our needs and opinions to each other is complex and evolving. Verbal communication becomes a subjective; non-verbal communication becomes instinctive. Truth evolves into argument, pragmatism becomes a matter of opinion, and an eye-witness is suddenly not witness to any argument that can hold water.
For example, what do you see here? Is the light on?
