This is a question that has been traipsing around in my brain since WAY before people in politics started talking about facts and alternate facts.

If gravity is still just a theory (something for which we have not found evidence against), what are facts?

The joke I tell when I do talks and trainings about communication and conflict resolution goes like this:

What is the difference between perception and reality? (wait a beat)

Perception is what you think. Reality is what I think (heavy emphasis in the I).

It always gets a good chuckle.

But if facts are all just perception, how do we figure it out?

Gary Fredericks, Racquelle Pakutz and Kevin Wash were brave souls to step into this conversation with me.

What do you think makes something a fact?
