the Freedom of Terror and Truth

July22

so…about the nature of truth.

ponder how difficult it is to convey the truth when everybody is speaking a different language.

…tongues, dialects, video, coding, body language, signing…

for example, the word ‘terrorist’ and the word ‘freedom fighter’ can be used to refer to the same people at any given time, or for a considered cause.

The word “hysterical” is another brilliant example of how “rich” the English language is with words that can have multiple meanings and applications.

with everyone speaking differently, truth is almost impossible to agree upon. yet believing in the existence of truth is the only thing that keeps us from devolving into tribal warfare. because without the existence of truth, the person who is most powerful becomes the person who is right.

soon I’ll talk about how God, and a belief structure, works in much the same way.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Did God give us English or does the language help us define Him

can you imagine one day a robot writing poetry? would you listen to a robot serve-up a sermon from the pulpit?

Can you shed some light on your comment?

What is the difference, in your mind, of an idea vs. concept?

perhaps an idea is the primordial inspiration. that eureka moment.

I then view concept as the next evolutionary step.

that brings into perspective the conceiving of an idea. leveraging a dictionary will probably result in the discovery that the words are likely synonyms for one another. however, I prefer my thinking.

I love cars. Someone has an idea for a new version. they create a mold for a concept that evolves into the prototype. maybe we see the vehicle on the road, whether it’s a good idea, or not.

we make of such things, as we will. God gave us discernment, and the will to use it. how we do so might define our creativity. what we were made to do.

the potential for word-play endless.

that said, one of my favorite example might end-up “being” the evolution of Artificial Intelligence” (“AI”). at what point will the mote in Gods eye transect with other creation? will AI (or androids, for example) develop independent or unique thought? can you imagine one day a robot writing poetry? would you listen to a robot serve-up a sermon from the pulpit?

the brilliance of our English language includes the wholesale and creative liberties it affords us all, collectively.

in a Word: spell check

October1

I find it amusing that spell check doesn’t correct the word ‘wanna.

However, there could be sinister ramifications.

I would never use such a word, nor form of a word. However, such a word is now clearly part of our lexicon.

I’ll need to investigate how such a thing could happen.

Is it progress, or a degradation of our language?

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

perspective

May16

I am in Columbus Georgia this weekend with Haley Anne and our Shockers for the State Cup Soccer Championships. So, I am keeping this post light.

Or not.

This image offers an exquisite example of both the richness of our english language as well of the dichotomy of words and their meaning.

Today the word in my mind is: wonder”.

wonder

What perspective much each creature posit?

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
