Don't you agree there are usually two layers of meanings when we talk about understanding.
The first one is I understand the concept, the literary meaning that you try to convey in a logic level. When I say well, I understand you. It means I know what you are talking about.
The second one is I understand your feeling and I try to connect with you as another from an emotional level. When I say I understand you. It is a commitment I make for putting myself into your shoes and think the way you think,.
But we all overlook that there is a third level of understanding. The true understanding that could only happen when I am you, and when you are me. When we know the same, we feel the same, and we experience the same. I guess what touches me much in this story is the human bondage exists within the cluster fulfills all three levels of understanding. And this, is nonexistence in reality.
My point is, if you consider this scenario as a part of our understanding of the word "understanding", you will feel the enormous and inevitable isolation and loneliness, though buried deeply and very good at hiding itself in shadows of our hearts, does exist ever since we were born, as a part of our nature.
