  • I accept that there are some things I cannot (likely) know: Someone’s lived experience is something I can *believe* I understand through comparison but I can’t “know” unless having lived a shared-enough-of experience simply because of the immense amount of interactive experiences needed to build up a truly shared understanding.
    It’s a matter of degree of course.
    Thankfully though, the amount of truly distinctive human experiences _possible_ are necessarily limited in a broad sense and as many of these experiences have been fictionalized and transferred across cultures and languages… I think it’s generally possible to gain a “working shared understanding” model.
    Still, it is amazing just how much _is_ possible to transfer in this fashion.

    Can I understand how a bug perceives reality?
    Up to a point, it’s likely possible, given mapping. But turning off the higher functions even temporarily to gain a fully immersive understanding may not be so easily, or perhaps it is common and everyday.
