“He framed me!” We usually hear these words when an innocent person is about to be unfairly punished. In truth, we “frame” people all the time—sticking them in categories, choosing what to see, eliminating context. And yes, innocent people get treated unfairly (or overlooked) because of it. Frames fix us in a certain space, time and perspective—focusing our attention but leaving out much that’s interesting and important. The worst is when we frame ourselves, creating personal cages that keep us from exploring unfamiliar realms. “I could never understand science.” “I could never go there, eat that, relate to….” fill in the blanks yourselves.
