When i say “network”,
i mean:
a collection
of independent beings
interacting.

...

Words.

So powerful. They can crush a heart, or heal it. They can shame a soul, or liberate it. They can shatter dreams, or energize them. They can obstruct connection, or invite it. They can create defenses, or melt them. We have to use words wisely.

Jeff Brown

Seth Russell Herman Hesse wrote "The Glass Bead Game" and he kind of described what the beads were but he left a whole lot up to our imagination. I fell in love with his game. I have always thought that his glass beads were actually words. Powerful little buggers when we give them care ... use them wisely indeed!

I can go to places in my mind … places in my universe … that are quite distinct enough … yet have no names … there is no word for them.  I never heard anybody in our culture talks about those

So sometimes i like to talk about them anyway.  Speak them out loud.  Watch how people flash “WTF … what is he taking about … is he mad … that stuff is just bozometry … squelch that shit … get him to change his words …  something must be wrong with that dude”.     …. funny how that happens laugh   But now i can chalk it up to:  that stuff is not nodes in their network.

Wow we can mine this dictionary of positive words not in the English language for new nodes in our minds.

I once had a wallaby in the warehouse at PJ2 inspired by those sitting around & talking about stuff at the Common Logic table after probably a day of altered consciousnesses .... to wit the words summarize to "This seems like a group of people hanging out talking about reality long after it all ceased to exist".
a la Samuel Beckett

Another meme (occult if you can think deep) that is passed in Art, Music & Song better than just the words. (John Legend & Lindsey Stirling)

One who groks being (notice grok is an invented word of maybe Heinlein - Stranger in a Strange Land) knows the futility of trying to clothe such in words long after the volcano effect has run rampant; maybe a few seconds later.
Trying to clothe another's direct experience of being in your own words & philosophy & point-of-view is equally futile & pointless.

Just a Pile of stuff to emote over. Click & view large for an old or new feeling about one.
Like mentons which are old hat, these new things are #EmoTons chances to groove your qualia with.


Not to be confused with Emo unless your purpose fits then you are right at home!

I can attest that a pile has its own laws of growth: Pathos, Ethos & Logos (sometimes) & randomicity.
I am, of course talking about a pile of words or any pile that becomes amorphous and may suffer growing pains in the process; often losing context, and a train of thought or feeling & subsuming chaos or anarchy.  I have hitherto resisted but now I celebrate it with glee.

Slurp! - lick the spoon.

I am losing faith in words. They are reputed to be only 7% of verbal communication anyway - even if they coexist with or are kind to the truth.
What is fascinating with a similar medium in the Arts are songs & music. The performance art is not intended to be precise but instead pass along an emotional content which each listener experiences for himself with his own interpretation within his own life. A good many of them are about love.  A song rarely means exactly anything. Words only pretend now to represent anything of the sort.
The power of the word has already sung its goodbye ode.
