This is a study of impediments in current thought that block higher forms of understanding between people. This title was suggested over 800 years ago by “The Tale of Three Blind Men” who tried to describe an elephant by touching different parts of it, a tale was immortalized in Rumi’s Mathnawi. Here then are more than a hundred tales of ponderables, each with a reference to a hadith, or Muslim sage, or oft-quoted proverb.
