Version Definition

A version is the way that each person will have about the same observed fact.

Just as not all individuals are equal, nor do we think the same thing is that for example of a single fact there can be hundreds of versions, as so many people have appreciated.

Each person who observes it will appreciate it based on their experience , their way of thinking , among other issues, and then create their own version of that fact or topic, which may or may not coincide with that of another, but it is worth indicating that it will be its own version beyond agreement or not.

Thus, for example, in the observation of an accident, a witness may give a version indicating the driver of the vehicle as guilty and, on the other hand, another witness will blame the pedestrian.
In these cases in which the versions on the same fact are contrasted, it will be necessary to conduct expertise and also obtain more witness statements to be able to elucidate which version is the one that most closely matches the truth.

And this situation can be transferred to all levels , areas and events, since it is very common that each one has his own version of a fact and that will be diametrically opposed to that of another.

In the field of journalism it is very frequent that in the face of a fact or situation that transcends but whose protagonists for example have not come out to confirm or deny the same several versions arise and then, what journalism does is make known all those versions that circulate so that people based on their knowledge and experience take the one that best closes them.

However, in this sense many times the versions that are made public by the media are inaccurate and then the protagonists find it very difficult to erase them from the popular imaginary. The most honest thing is that the media let you know when it comes to information checked with the sources and when you are facing versions that need to be confirmed with the interested parties.

In art , especially in music , in cinema , literature , it turns out to be a frequent practice for some musicians, authors, directors to perform a new interpretation of for example a song or a performance already recorded or performed by another artist, usually of great renown.
