Observation is superficial

We only see the surface of objects, their interior is always hidden away from us.

The only thing we achieve when we cut an object is to increase its surface. An incision is arbitrary; one among an infinite number of possible cuts.

Once we dissect an object, we reveal a particular aspect of its interior expressed in the form of a new surface. At the same time, by performing that cut we eliminate the rest of possible cuts and therefore the rest of possible aspects about that object.

Vision gives us only a perspective of reality. Every viewpoint gives us a different image of the totality, incomplete, biased towards the viewpoint and complementary to all other points of view; by picking one point of view, we discard all the others.

We can’t observe the totality of an object’s surface at once; there is always a hidden side which is not facing us.

Similar points of view result in similar views of reality. Hidden faces are exposed by opposite points of view.

The first step to approach a more accurate image of reality is to recognize the non-absoluteness and partiality of any particular point of view. A better picture is acquired when multiple and opposite vistas are considered.
