Words are words are words.
The more I attempt to understand the meaning of words the more I realize how meaningless they are.
The worn out phrase "actions speak louder than words" is true and has always been true.
Words change their meaning from second to second. When spoken they assume new meanings. When written they are rigid and assume added strength.
Facial expressions are visual words that include the eyes, nose, lips, mouth, forehead and every part and particle of the human face.
The entire human body speaks in silence.
What we see therefor are words ... what we speak is our inaccurate representation of words.
The mother of all word makers is our mind. Contained therein lie the seeds of genetically implanted words that represent instinct, imagination and untold happiness or horror.
Time is a word we don't often listen too ... as each second ticks to remind us that time is immortal but we humans are not.
Our behavior towards one another is mostly redundant ... we say the same words to each other yet expect different results.
Is it a good morning? a cold morning? a rainy morning? Are you hungry, famished or starving.
Words separate the rich from the poor and the good from the bad.
Yet so few if any of us humans understand the true meaning behind what we say.
That is because words substitute for animal instinct in human beings. Flawed.
Also we do not have the eyesight of an eagle or the superior olfactory attributes of a hound dog.
We cannot predict the future or foresee an event based on smell or sound or eyesight as do many animals.
We must rely on our thoughts as an early warning system or to forecast future events.
Many today have stopped thinking. Conventional wisdom as manifested in our various modes of communication provides the words we are to lazy to form.
Climate change is an example. Two words we speak and hear and often see on our Television sets and read about in books.
Yet to this very moment the planet is rapidly changing to the extent that many are predicting cataclysmic events effecting those who live along shorelines or in earthquake prone areas.
We are told by those who most impact and control our lives to disregard life and concentrate on jobs and ourselves ... not each other, not humanity.
Glibly we say that what is happening is natural and that we should live on as a species with no goals; because we cannot control outcomes.
Yet some very few among us humans have personal goals to the detriment of humanity as a whole.
