We can hear others speak but not truly listen to the words because we interrupt it in our own world. When this occurs we should ask questions of those that spoke instead assume something that has not actually been spoken. I believe this occurred when Eve was deceived by the snake to eat the apple. Instead of Eve asking G-D if there was an exception to the rules she assumed there was one and we all know the consequences of that decision. I believe today that lesson should not be forgotten and before we say what others said maybe we should truly listen to what they say and ask questions.
