We can’t show anyone the thought that we see in our head. We have words that we combine in such a way that their auras of meaning overlap with the landscape of thought are seeing as much as possible. These words can voyage into the world outside of our heads. Others have their own auras of meaning associated with each word – somewhat similar to ours – that we hope serve to create a similar landscape of thought in their minds. In this roundabout way we can show eachother our thoughts. But words are hubs of innacurracy, a word can stand in for vastly different concepts for different people.
