Do we understand each other?

i think a lot of today's troubles involve
not understanding each other. 
The Kilauea photos i used here  better illustrate the point, but above i've got it another way.
The idea is, which view is right?  Is it just trees, or is there a lake?  Whoa, maybe the sky's grey and not blue?
Like in Twain's donkey and friends, we see what we see, and know what we know, and decide that everyone sees that way, it's the only way anyone sees - or should see if they're good people.
My earlier post referencing this story
 How to Discern Fake News, from Indiana University Library-Richmond
Another article by Twain: Corn-Pone Opinions
....they read its literature, but not that of the other side; they arrive at convictions, but they are drawn from a partial view of the matter in hand...
