We’re born behind windshields

We look at the world from behind our windshields. We wake up in the morning behind one; we go to sleep at night behind one. Our windshields, our visors, can’t be removed. Our brains create a model of the physical world to help us travel through it; our brains also create models of the people around us, to help us deal with them, creating the *illusion* that we understand them. But we’re not behind their windshields.
