Mathematician's concepts of linear vector spaces may offer insights into how different people perceive conflicts. Each person perceives each conflict from within the frame of reference of a mathematical sub-space of the vector space which spans the conflict's many aspects. Thus each person perceives a projection of the aspects of the conflict at upon the basis vectors of the person's sub- space. A person's sub-space may be lacking basis vectors which are parallel to major aspects of a conflict. Such a person will be unable to perceive such major aspects with insight, perceiving instead just the projections of those major aspects upon basis vectors which are nearly if not exactly orthogonal to the basis vectors most suitable for representing the major aspects. In the extreme case a person may be totally blind to a major aspect of a conflict---because the major aspect of the conflict is exactly orthogonal to all the basis vectors which span the person's perceptual sub-space. Such a person will inevitably misunderstand the conflict and will likely behave in ways which confuse the situation further, if not intensify the conflict. The following questions suggest some of the major aspects of conflicts. People who are insensitive to the import of the following questions will have difficulty in perceiving major aspects of many conflicts: Who should have power? What procedures should be followed? What checks and balances upon the exercise of power should be in operation? What is the purpose of government? What is the proper function of religious institutions? How can we promote healthy personal growth? What "problems" can not be solved through the use of techniques? What values block dialogue? What are the origins of alienation and estrangement? What factors promote violence? Under what conditions are legalism, moralism, ethicism, and technology counter productive? What is the nature of a love relationship in which people fulfill their unique potentials? Which are more real: the participants in relationships or the relationships which define who they are? Are the concepts "good" and "evil" helpful in classifying behavior of people or people themselves? Are the concepts "cause" and "effect" always appropriate in seeking to understand human relationships? How can we best broaden our perceptual space? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
