The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.
– Douglas Adams, The Salmon of doubt: Hitchhiking the galaxy one last time
Everything is normal within the framework we live in. When we go outside our framework things usually seem strange to us. Communication is about walking from our framework into someone else’s. To try to see the world through their eyes. This is where collaboration starts if we can respect the other’s framework when we see it or ends when we don’t.
