I believe the term is 'busted'.
Someone was startling perceptive in one of the poly community environments. Extremely perceptive. Which would have been surprising enough on it's own, but far beyond what is normally found there.
What this person on the other side of the planet saw was something that we ourselves has not… seen? understood? examined? until quite recently. They saw potential where only a fledgling exists.
It's amazing how others may see what we do not. Just as the blind spots we have about ourselves can be extraordinary. But is it really always blindness, or is it also protection? I think the later is an influential factor in the equation.
Obviously I need to work harder on my Ice Princess sk1lz...
The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
