Early in life we learn mostly through our senses. Even what we learn from others looks through the heavily-tinted glasses of sense-experience. As we age we learn to see through others eyes (an expression which stands for all senses here). In that way we become wise – looking beyond ourselves and beyond our natural instincts into a world we more and more are responsible for ourselves. I wonder if the person who becomes wise begins even to understand what was hidden from his gender early in life – begins to understand some of what belongs to only the other gender in the early years.
