Words

20 Apr

The best gift that one can have in life is the gift of words.

Words have a limitation in the sense they can constrain experiencing a new experience but when it comes to expressing a known experience, only words can give it meaning. And words are only about transmitting and sharing it with others but about how your mind processes that information.

You see an attractive girl, we already have used the word attractive, the other word you have beautiful that will give it a slightly different meaning, change that to pristine, that again changes that visual experience, or you think ethereal beauty it again changes the experience.

Words can elevate everything we see, feel, taste, smell, hear.

Our senses needs words to have meanings.

Eventually everything is in the mind.

    words can also be tricky. they sometimes lead us to believe that they mean to us the same thing as they do to someone else.

    Words are great, and probably as you say the best gift to express…unfortunately there has always been dearth of use of precise words for expressing oneself.

      That is true, reason language is always evolving and creating new words to express new experiences.

      And if the language itself is inadequate than the experience gives rise to a new language
