Different Ways Of 'looking' At Things

Just quickly: I guess without considering at length just now: "perspectives" are different ways of "looking" at things.

"Looking" is in inverted commas because it might not involve "looking". Dolphins using sonar get a different perspective on a school of fish than a human diver using eye-sight or a magnetometer using electromagnetic-field-detection technology.

The list is extensive; a heavy mass has a different perspective as "interaction" than a lighter mass has; on the event "collision" when they collide, for example.
