Mental Headspace

Today I was involved in a private conversation where the subject of how I was glad that was introduced to debate at school and then at university and other organisations.

One of the most useful lessons was to cultivate the ability to hold more than one viewpoint initial in different thinking/headspaces and over time, bring them together into one.

Over time i learned about using different structures of language to help to separate the thinking, almost a way of being two people at once to understand and see the world from a different perspective a different personal history.

Sometimes I reach out to people I like to explore their views and understand the triggers and reasons for that thought. I know that text is not the right forum for this, but it gives some of the best feedback and helps to create the model I need to understand what is happening. This allowed me to try to shape that into a world view so I can see from that perspective as well.

Now and again, I try to explain this to others, most get it, some become upset, but each time I understand about more of the viewpoint and the reasons behind it.

If we are all connected, then completeness is found in learning to become someone else no matter how different they are from you, and adding their view of the world to your understanding.
