Does Mortar Keep The Bricks Together Or Apart?

We rightly accept that mortar is required to bind bricks together, to build any structure of strength, with a degree of permanence.

However, if you were to look at that structure from a different perspective, you would also have to concede that the bricks are held apart by the very same mortar. The mortar therefore is equally binding as it is separating. Whilst an apparent contradiction in terms, both states are true simultaneously.

What problem, scenario or circumstance could you apply a different perspective to today? What issue might you have, that looks like a contradiction in terms on the surface, but actually deserves merit and further examination?

There is often more than one perspective available.
