What the hell is water? The importance of context
from By Andy Curtis
Author David Foster Wallace's story of fish not realizing they are in water illustrates so eloquently — in just 50 words or so — that when we're in something all the time, we don't notice what we're in. Or, if we did notice it at some point in the past, we stopped noticing it some time ago. Wallace went on to explain that "the immediate point of the fish story is that the most obvious, ubiquitous, important realities are often the ones that are the hardest to see and talk about." Why is that?
