Words as symbols

7 posts in this topic

Quote

We sometimes forget that when we're using words, we are passing symbols back and forth. This means we must make assumptions like for example, that we agree upon the meaning of these symbols. Words like soul, spirit, psyche, enlightenment, love and hate are a few that carry heavy associations for most of us and can be difficult to get right.

Once upon a time in the previous races the word had the ability to perform what is said so the word could kill or quash the animal or create a tangible form of the object. Now, in order to create a car, a person needs to get the metal to process it, make it out of it and assemble the car. It's the same with the food. In its supreme power, the Word creates the universe, but this ability has been taken away from the person because he abused it, and the descending evolution has coarsened the mind to create a clear personality of man. Now thinking about the subject we do not know its inner essence, we can not penetrate consciousness into an object, we can only call it different words, see its color, know its mass but words do not give the experience of the subject itself.

When we fall asleep in us the imaginative thinking that preceded the intellectual mind in evolution awakens.

What? Everyone knows its the signal being broadcast off the rings of Saturn that keep us from being able to quash an animal or create a tangible form of the object with our minds

Evolution is the process in which adversity in the organism's environment creates a mutation giving that organism a advantage. It doesn't work in reverse.

Well, we lost a lot but also got a lot. In general, the person the transitional link, after him will say there are several more races and transformations of the earth.

The concept of "race" is a social construct. We all have certain mutations depending upon our environment but we are still all the same species.
