Only by apprehending the new reality in all these various ways does the child gain a full awareness of it. Each way gives a differing perspective of the nature of the new reality. When a person has an awareness of a new reality and wishes that self and other might have a mutual awareness of that reality---an analogous process is essential. Through open and honest dialogue it may be possible to develop a mutual awareness of the new reality. The dialogue will involve a strange language appropriate to the new reality. It will involve attempts at pointing to realities corresponding to the differing perspectives of the new reality. Pointing to realities will often NOT involve logical arguments, especially if the realities are NOT essentially logical in nature. If the self finds the other not free to see the new reality, logical arguments will be of no avail in efforts to help the other receive the freedom to see the new reality. At best self can point to the reality as well as possible from the perspective of the other. If self is unaware of the state of consciousness of the other this is difficult if not impossible. The best that can be done in such a case is to offer for consideration a wide variety of pointing to reality in the hope that the other may be moved to at least look in that direction. In such a case it is inevitable that there will be redundancy and repetition. Yet without such redundancy and repetition a full appreciation of the reality may not develop. In order for scientists and non-scientists to help each other gain a mutual awareness of and a mutual understanding of each other and the broader reality in which they participate, it will be necessary for them to call to each other's attention that which they perceive as real and as worthy of their finite attention.
