If not, here’s a quick recap: Six men are put in a darkened room and asked to identify an animal (the elephant) by each feeling a different part. One feels a leg, another a tusk, another the tail, another the trunk, and so on. When they compare notes, they find that they are all in complete disagreement about what that animal is.
