trying to talk about something that cannot be transmitted by speech alone...and realizing that when you do, you put yourself in the "conceptual set" of another because you have just limited yourself to talking and dismissing the other methods of transmission of the message.

if i try to describe sunlight and you cannot see ultraviolet and i can, and you have no way whatsoever to even observe/measure/confirm that there is indeed an ultraviolet aspect of the spectrum...how can i talk to you. ESPECIALLY when i'm telling you a way to see them and you keep getting caught up in your already held beliefs about sunlight and the spectrum.

the reason solarus didn't answer you from the beginning is because of the way you posed the questions...which brought a whole slew of assumptions that at this point he might be tired of dealing with...and i am certainly tired of even hearing. damn i need a scanner, i have to draw something for the explanation...maybe i can hook something up.
