i hope to return to this topic and dig deeper. for now i want to at least document it here. i don't know how exactly we got here, but i think as a society we incorrectly interpret statistics in the context of individuals instead of groups of individuals. this shapes our intuition. if you are rich, your experience based on the stats is ____________. if you are poor, it's ___________. if you're this race or that it's ____________. i think we should explicitly remove individuals from a context which is explained using statistics.
