Shared language as key to shared reality

Shared reality is something we create. We do it through language. Until we create a shared reality, we each have our own reality. 

One key is to notice how often we and others use language with assumed meaning. We think we know what we're saying. We're assuming. We only know when we ask and offer distinctions. Agreement is all about making new distinctions. There is no new shared realities without new shared distinctions. We connect in shared meaning.
