One’s “understanding” of any relational value is a subjective phenomenon created by relational circumstances and relational perspectives. When a subject’s behavior appears to be peculiar, strange, senseless, detached from reality or unexplainable, the only proper way to truly understand the etiology of the behavior in question is by evaluating the relational circumstances and perspectives present in that subject’s relational world at the time the behavior is produced. Indeed, there is no behavior whatsoever, which is illogical to he or she who manifests it. Everything we do makes “perfect sense” to us when we’re doing it. It has to. The structure that guides us, rigorously requires that it does. That doesn’t mean that later, when circumstances change or a “new contextual perspective,” appears, we may not question the “logic” behind our actions. After all, questioning almost any behavior from a new or different contextual perspective invariably provides us with hindsight, and hindsight, as we all know, is always 20/20.
