What's it mean?
Is there really such a thing?
Oh come on...give it up, it's reality.
You get sarcasm for sarcasm.
Definitions, categories and all that common sense that exists. How would you ever be able to live without those categories, those definitions, those meanings. Here's a question, was language invented for definitions, or the other way around? Can anyone answer that? In the first place, why was a language invented? Or maybe the proper question is why a universal laugnage was instated?
Maybe we can look back into the age when sea voyages around the world in search of the "New World" was still taking place. It may seem trivial now, but in those times, there were no airplanes, no satalites, no world maps, no GPS...you just had ships going on bold voyages heading to find new land to "claim". How convenient, to claim...
Language. What's the common language used in the world at the moment? English! Why? It's partially because the English Empire used to dominate 90% of the world, so everyone had to learn English to gain access to higher heirarchy of jobs, rank, carreer and social status. So, was there another form of imperialism going unnoticed? Maybe the imperialism of language - linguistic imperialism?
The language which you think in dictates the way you think. True or false? There is some truth to this, but there is another issue to discern. Is language a projection of culture? Perhaps it's culture that's determining how we think, but language that maintains that pressure to continue thinking in that same fashion.
The wonder of the human mind, everything you do, sustains itself by connection to something else. If you disturb one part, the who cycle wrecks and you start again, but from an utter mess.
