Teaching People about Pain

A frank approach to interpersonal communication brings with it some challenges, but having to dig oneself out of a hole, created by strategically avoiding the truth, is not one of them. This frank approach is well suited to science – the scientific process requires us to pursue and report the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We do not tend to avoid aspects of the truth because we think that they are too hard for people to understand; for example, we do not avoid the amazing truth that the brain constructs visual experience from the information available to it, and instead suggest that the eyes themselves actually create visual experience and send the visual experience to the brain to be registered; we do not suggest that the ears capture words and bird-calls and racing cars and send those sounds to the brain to be registered. We tend to endorse the complexity of the brain and its fundamental role in what we experience. Unless, of course, we are talking about pain.
