do unto others...

I was once at a festival walking down the street with a friend, when she suddenly blurted out, “All these people look really stupid. I mean look at them. Their hair. Their clothes. Don’t you think so?”

I don’t really remember how I got out of that one but not much time later she blurted out the next few lines. “I wonder what people think of us?” she said in a pensive tone. I think they think we look weird and stupid,” she continued as though she was encountering a new realization.

At that point I gaped at her a bit. She was a smart woman and I was surprised she had no realization of her own projection. I had to think to my self later—quite often we are blind to our own participation in things we have cognitive knowledge above. you would have them be to you.
