Every Coin Has At Least Three Sides
When you ask somebody that How many sides a coin has, the most probable answer you will get is 'Two'. But this is a wrong answer, as there is no coin with 2 sides, and every coin has at least 3 sides.
The disk shaped coins have two faces i.e. head and tail; and an edge. Edge is not the right word for it, but there is no other suitable word for it. We always ignore this third side of the coin. (Even we do not have a name for it!)
Further all coins are not disk shaped. There are triangular, rectangular, pentagonal and hexagonal coins. Although such coins are rare, most of us know about them. But we ignore the fact, and like to say that every coin has two sides.
Why this happens? Simple answer is that most of the time we do not think and like to copy blindly.
It is just an example of how we ignore the realities and generalize the things. We do not want to think, and just speak according what we have heard. We ignore what we have seen.
We should consider all the sides of any thing, material or immaterial. This helps us to know every side of the thing and to find the truth. It helps us in our think process and broadens our views.
