Each of us sees the world from our own point of view. From where we stand we might believe we are really small. From where we stand someone else might look really big. Just because we see it a certain way doesn't make it true. Everything in the world is relative. Everything in the world has size or shape or speed or time or whatever in relation to something or someone else.
It's really important to learn to see the world through a lens that is wider than just our own point of view, our own learning, our own way of doing things.
This book is about Einstein's Theory of Relativity but even more it's about learning to see with more than one pair of eyes. It's about learning to see something in relation to all the other things around us. That takes awareness and practice.
