“Reflection is looking in so you can look out with a broader, bigger, and more accurate perspective.”
— Mick Ukleja and Robert Lorber
I have always been fascinated with perspective. Society can say what they want about it, but ultimately, it is individualized. What I find particularly interesting about this quote from Ukleja and Lorber is that they talk about perspective in relation to reflection. They essentially say that we reflect upon ourselves, and look to our own insight to formulate our unique perspectives. I like this point of view because they are saying we don’t need to rely on the influences of the world to formulate our own outlooks. Perspective is something we already possess and create, we just need to look to ourselves to further develop it. I like their understanding that once we look in we can in a way release our perspective into the world. I guess that is why there is so much diversity, in a broader sense than what we’re used to, because of the billion of perspectives that fill the space.
