We are a remarkable species. With no biological protections to rely on like sharp teeth, long claws, or poisonous venom we have managed to expand across the globe to every kind of land, every kind of climate, facing every kind of natural threat. We have done so in very large part by our extraordinary skill at creating associations in our brains and using those connections to help us understand and navigate this place we call home. In terms of how this skill relates to Attire, we have built up over millennia of time an endless stream of associations that direct our response to the people we see in our world.
The biggest part of the inherent danger in these things is that it happens nearly instantaneously. Before we are aware the connection is already in place, diverting us from whatever truth might be actually getting conveyed. So it is wise to check ourselves, to reconsider and step back form our own judgements a moment before we deliver our assessment. I find I am no less guilty of this than anyone else, and must make a deliberate effort to set these considerations aside. It's work, real work to do so.
