Ambiguity and Contrast Training

Ambiguity and Contrast Training


A rough translation of a 14th century monastic scribe suggests that ambiguity was invented because the romans were ruling the world too well. When ambiguity was introduced, all their commands went astray.

Plan of action

Ambiguity causes havoc in communications. Due to our cultural upbringing and our conditioning, we perceive the world differently to everyone else. Our clear as crystal instructions are clear as mud to other people. By developing contrast skills, we will learn to chip away at the edge of our perceptive world and see a much bigger picture.
