I was so impressed by Jack and Kirsten’s perseverance in trying to explain themselves to each other. Here they have this condition that makes it hard to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes. It makes it hard just to understand in a kind of intuitive way what someone else is thinking. It made me think about my own relationships and how hard it is for all of us to do that. Even those of us who have neurological tools to do that, it’s kind of the quintessential challenge of all relationships, to explain yourself to somebody else and to understand someone else.
