Everything turns on how we perceive our life. No one teaches us about perception. About interpretation. About hermeneutics. About ascribing meaning. About seeing. About understanding what we look at... We stumble into some mode of explaining to ourselves what's happening, making things up to suit ourselves, call that knowing how things are, and responding to it in ways commensurate with our explanation. Is there any wonder that the world is insane? We are all doing the only thing we know to do-- thinking things are what we say they are and doing what we say needs to be done about them. And, here we are. Nobody wants to be here, but, everybody is here. Because everything turns on how we perceive our life.
