Misunderstanding other’s private minds is the rule rather than the exception

Oh, I know we can’t read each others minds. I was speaking metaphorically.

I’m thinking of the nature of shared comprehension. Misunderstanding other’s private minds is the rule rather than the exception, yet with so much effort put forth towards “decipher intent” you’d think we were good at it as a species.

We’re not.

All we can do is come up with plausible sounding STORIES about ‘other minds’
