When looking at something objectively it’s important to distance yourself (granted - not always easy to do). -
When we put something under a microscope - it changes the way we see something. And what we mechanistically see is not what the outcome actually is. It has a danger of making something awful seem spectacular, and something spectacular absolutely awful. -
This then affects our definition and language around what we are looking at, which then affects our thoughts, which then affects our perception.
Things ain’t always what they seem. If you put anything under a microscope, with a limited or not comprehensive definition of what “great / complete / quality / optimal / thriving” is in its overall picture - we fall into the trap. It can make shit 💩 literally look like diamonds 💎.
