Since we are all on the same planet, the answer to the first question
is obvious:  there is no other option.  If you don't believe that,
you belong in a loony bin.    (02)

The answer to the other questions may take some effort to untangle
the subtleties.  But the basic method is also simple:  you ask the
other person some questions.  For most people, you can get a fairly
quick understanding of whether you're on the same "wavelength"
or whether you're talking past one another.    (03)
