There is a lovely story in Sanskrit, about a frog that is born in a well and stays in the well and lives its entire life in the well. “It has a world view that consists of the well. That well was blocking the way, the sight of the frog. And after the well falls, the frog was suddenly able to communicate with other frogs in all the other wells…if I celebrate the fall of the wall, it is because I am convinced of how much we can learn from each other. Most knowledge is learning from each other across the border” -
