Manysidedness

There exists a fascinating concept that truth comes from seeing many possible perspectives.

Imagine truth as an object. When you see from one viewpoint, you only get part of the picture. Kind of like when your iPhone needs your finger for touch ID. You have to put your finger down multiple times before the device is satisfied.

Truth is kind of like that. One perspective will not reveal everything. There is no objective measure that says “you have seen this from enough sides.”

Perfect information is never available. It’s your job to do the best with what you have, while at the same time gathering more insight.

Manysidedness is the constant desire to re-examine past beliefs. It’s also the judgment to know when it’s time to act.
