So what does it mean to be clear in our seeing?

Some people associate meditation with becoming calm, and many people go to meditation because their stressed out, too anxious or agitated, so their looking for calm. But the calm by itself can make the mind dull, whereas Vipassana, the goal is to make the mind sharp or clear.
