The funny thing about some numbers, you can have one number yet depending on the direction someone is looking at the number it could actually be two numbers. Take 6 and 9 depending on what direction you are looking at, you can see in the picture, two different views provide two different numbers. There is nothing wrong with the point of views. The problem comes when one or both people refuse to look at the number from all sides. This happens so much in the world today. This is true from politics on down to juries.
You have to look past the end of your own nose to have a clear view of reality. What this means is you must get past your personal feelings and see what the evidence is actually showing you, not just what you want to see. You must see first the big picture, then take your personal thought or beliefs out of the picture and do some critical thinking.
