Paper Abstract

During this conference we have once heard a political view on optics. I would now like to present an optical view on politics. I want to demonstarte how persons from different worlds, persons with different experiences, can study the same optical phenomenon and not only give different interpretations but actually make different observations and really see different things. It is important that we understand and accept that one single observation can produce different results in the minds of different people. As an example we study the simple mirror image and prove that our interpretation depends on the type of world we come from. When this fact is true for a simple optical reflection there is no wonder we have problems in solving political problems.
