Perspective Snippets are on the home page, and are short one-liners. Perspective Snips are just a bit longer, and so have more explanations. Perspectives are longer still. Nutshells are attempts to cover the whole subject, generally fail, and should be renamed Perspectives belonging at a previous stage of maturity and view.

“you have offended me (with what you have done or said)”
“thank you, but it’s ok – I don’t have a problem with you being offended”

Being bored is like complaining – both arise from not taking responsibility. There is ALWAYS something in circumstance that is interesting, probably growthful, and it is only laziness and being stuck in one’s (habitual) perspective that prevents one finding it.

A recipe for finding it in one’s conversationist is to ask e.g. who or what is valuable?, and see if interest arises.
If it doesn’t, then one hasn’t asked the question with a clean and honest intention and perception and delivery, or one is knackered and not making sense anyway.

If your conversationist is knackered or comatose on the floor, then one didn’t perceive the situation correctly in the first place, etc.

When a person cuts through their own identity, and takes a view or re-examination of why they see things the way they do, then they are on the way to unwinding their identity. When you unwind the identity within yourself, then there is even less of you to have an opinion or feeling. You are likely to move your nose away from the windscreen of experience and ask where our perceptions and perspectives come from.

You will also increasingly see things for what they are: Everything you encounter is either an object having mechanical principles best understood without identity and conventional opinions etc. Or they are relationships between the perceiver and the perceived, which are best perceived without your identity and prejudice and personal perspective.

After sensing these two aspects, you end up with two questions:
What is this object/situation/device/process and what is the critical path and critical levers and pinch points and factors in how it works?
What is it that the person has just expressed, and what relationship is it revealing, and what is incomplete or in discrepancy between the person and the object they feel about?

Both these questions oddly enough employ the same mental processes of mechanical 3-D vectors, because they can all be imagined as 3-D objects having pressure in a specific direction (vector).
