There are some things in life that just go without saying. We all understand them intuitively. They just make sense to us. For example, breathing. How do you explain that to somebody? And we’re not talking about the scientific sense. We know, oxygen, carbon dioxide, gas exchange, etc. What we are talking about is actually explaining to somebody how to breathe. Could you do that? What would you tell them?
You see, there are some things that are just impossible to explain. You can’t talk someone into flexing their diaphragm and taking a breath in the same way that you can’t explain what the color blue looks like. Well, it looks like peacefulness or happiness or quietness. That’s just hippie talk! There is no way that you could definitively describe the color blue to someone in a way that would confirm they are seeing precisely the same color and shade as you. It is just impossible. When it comes to colors, words fail us. We have no vocabulary to describe what definitively distinguishes blue from green or red from orange.
And that is the topic for today. These are 25 Things We Understand Clearly But Can’t Fully Explain!
