understanding? (2006)

Misunderstanding is fundamental of human beings. We cannot read anothers brain. We are like submarines progressing by the information of our own internal monitors but unable to see what is really going on. In every tentative to understand another human being, we have to let in unknown information, that has the potential to destabilize us. That's dangerous, and so most human beings prefer a misunderstanding attitude over an understanding one. Annie Abrahams 1997 2005
