I think it was Josh Lerner here or somewhere else who said in the West everyone agrees that they experience the universe the same way, but disagree on the best terminology to describe it, while in East everybody uses the same terminology but each person believes that only they really know what the terms really mean. A generality, of course, but with a kernel of truth in there, I think.
I don't know who said it but (having read a couple of times over now a great book on the divergence of classic western and eastern medicine and the conception of the body) its an interesting generality to play with in my head for a while so thanks for bringing it up,
