We live in a world where many people insist on making decisions based on facts and not on opinions or on perspectives. But the idea that a fact is a fact is in fact an illusion. Even Marcus Aurelius knew it when he produced the following quote: “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” And modern scientists in the quantum physics area can tell us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see ~ Neale Donald Walsch. So if you actually create the reality that you think you see, what is then the value of a fact? It is in fact always subjective. So be careful with your observations, because you might think they give you new ‘observable’ insights but what someone observes is always in the eye of the beholder. Want to get better insight from you observations? Share it with others and ask their opinion too. Together you make better or at least more complete observations. But always be careful with decisions made on just a few observations or on the illusion these observations can be earmarked as plain, undisputable facts. Have respect for the Unknown and embark on developing the Sensed in combination with the Known. This will give you a much better balanced decision support context.
