The notion of two points in time colliding sounds odd when we say it out loud …
Two points in time cannot collide in real time, but they can collide in our mind. When we have a ‘moment’ that feels just like ‘that moment’ we had long ago – suddenly in two places at the same time. Circumstances, people are place are largely different, but the feeling is just the same.
We understand the intersection of two lines on a drawing – they might cross over or intersect like a T or crossroads intersection. Or two lines that never cross, never meet, even though they’re so near.
We live near – drive common roads, shop in the same stores – or we attend events in the same stadium, though we never meet. Never connect, never intersect, never colliding.
Good reference to accountability, Mark! It is something we learn and many people today, old and young feel they can brush it off with an excuse or blame someone or something else for their shortfall. Accountability differs from a mistake, as there is a learning opportunity from a mistake. With accountability, I suggest there is not as an extensive learning opportunity for the individual or group. The learning opportunity is more with the observer, friend, family, client or customer, watching and listening how the ownership of the previous situation or action is held, owned and described, BD, Calgary, AB
