Same same but different

erez's picture

Anyone who ever traveled in India is familiar with the phrase "same same but different".

Say you see a nice T-shirt in the window of a shop, you enter the shop and ask the owner for the shirt. He hands you over a shirt which somehow doesn't look exactly like the one in the window. You ask: "Is it the same as the shirt in the window?". "Same same" the man replies. Then you unfold the shirt and find out that it has a different cut and a different print. You say: "no, it is not the same, look!" and he replies: "same same but different".

Reflection of Perceptions

Selfless Being's picture

Our perceptions and how we interpret events are filtered by our notions and beliefs. What we perceive is but a reflection of us and not the object of our perception.
