It's a Matter of Perspective

Have you ever noticed how much changes depending on your point of view?


Even just a very slight change of perspective can make a significant difference.


As such, two people looking at the same thing from different view points will actually see different things.


They might argue about how it's possible that other people sees things differently.


While it's so clearly green for one person...


It's so obviously blue to another.


It's best to keep this in mind when arguing about perceptions. Try to take a very close look from every point of view you can imagine.


Only then will you see reality as it actually is: a diversity of shifting sizes, shapes, textures, and colors strongly influenced by the eye of the beholder.

This reminds me of Marian Petre's words:

The question is not 'Is a picture worth a thousand words?', but 'Does a given picture convey the same thousand words to all viewers?'
