    Will the Man With No Eyes See Darkness?

      In my younger years, which is not that long ago for me, I first wondered if people saw different colours…because if you see red as I see green how am I to know the difference, because we both call the different colours the same thing. Now days I think science has...

    What do you see? Yeah there's the brown hair

    and eyes, but what else? You can't see what's inside, that's why it's so easy for others to judge, to assume, and to turn away. But we may have more in common than you'd ever imagined. So, take a closer look at someone next time you start to judge =]

    People live their lives bound by what they

    accept as correct and true. That's how they define "reality". But what does it mean to be "correct" or "true"? Merely vague concepts... Their "reality" may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?
