 <p>And maybe in some ultimate sense it's an illusion. Maybe cultural boundaries cannot be crossed. Maybe we are all locked into our groups, our enclaves, even our own skins. Maybe you have to be a man to understand men, and a woman to understand women; maybe you have to have light skin to understand people with light skin, and dark skin to understand people with dark skin.Maybe no one from the first world can ever understand someone from the third, and vice versa.Maybe all first-world 'understanding' of the third world, male 'understanding' of women,majority 'understanding' of minorities is the mere projection of hegemonic power,a late form of colonialism. Maybe no one ever understands anyone else;maybe understanding is an illusion projected and policed by superior force.</p>
<p>Still, we go on trying to understand, to bridge the communicative gaps between individuals and groups. It's what we do.And we do it specifically by immersing ourselves in cultural otherness, in the way other people talk and act.We do it in the belief that paying close attention to how people use language and move their bodies in space and time will yield us valuable knowledge about the 'other side' — whoever and whatever lies beyond whatever cultural boundary we find or sense or imagine before us. Somehow beliefs, values,ideas, images, experiences will travel across those boundaries from their heads and bodies into ours, through language, through expression and gesture, through the contagion of somatic response. (A laughing person makes us happy, a crying person makes us sad; a yawning person makes us sleepy, and a frightened or anxious person awakens our fear and unease; see Robinson 1991: 5ff.)</p>
