Our shared description of the world

Some believe our shared description of reality is an evolutionary protective mechanism, because the actual nature of reality might drive us crazy. Language was the tool that built this description we think of as so solid. With a shared language we could articulate a shared, agreed upon way of describing.

Imagining a different perspective of reality

I once tried to tell a story from the perspective of a flock of tiny birds living in a hedgerow. I attempted to imagine an entire different perspective of reality but it was beyond me. Even if it had succeeded it would likely have been incomprehensible to readers.
