  • 6 blind men went to observe an elephant, in order to draw a conclusion about what it was
  • The first man stumbled and fell into the elephant’s broad side and declared, “The elephant is like a wall.”
  • The second man felt the tusk, round and smooth and sharp, and declared, “the elephant is like a spear.”
  • The third man approached the snake and happened to approach the squirming trunk and decided, “the elephant is like a snake.”
  • The fourth man reached out and felt the sturdy leg and concluded that, “the elephant is like a tree.”
  • The fifth man happened to touch the ear, and said it was clear as could be that the elephant was like a fan.
  • Finally, the sixth man approached the swinging tail. “The elephant,” he said,” is like a rope.”
  • They were all a little bit right, but they were all very wrong.
  • You need multiple perspectives, taken as a whole, in order to get the complete picture.
