language .....its a very blurry subject today though and the mind has to be carefully walked back .The standard model of discourse with its pre-suppositions hardly lends to a deeper more meaningful understanding of why.or where we are today .
Ironically I would be the person going to you to invent something .Ill do the tweaking and learn how to best make the thing work ...if a man built it then I can operate it ... You last word "property" is a full study in itself when looking at what it meant to pre-colonial Native mind sets .The Potlatch as a case in point .The colonial powers could not understand it and banned it ...couldn't have that kind of thinking carrying on .

I am an inventor by nature... thus understand that fine tuning things and optimizing them are not my strong suits. I am good for nothing more than a neutral opinion of general probability.

I let them swim around in the ocean for a few minutes and then whistle them back in." The Warden looks at the man skeptically and says, "Okay then, prove it." The man proceeds to throw the lobsters into the ocean and both he and the Warden stand there waiting. After a couple minutes the Warden looks at the man and says, "That's long enough, now whistle your lobsters back in." The man turns to the Warden and says "Lobsters? What lobsters?"

I guess it was your natural philosophy and how nature teaches that caused me to think so .Native American didn't help . As for Pocahontas and the possible link there well you might have got my heart to skip a beat or two . Something as close as second cousin single and looking :>)
Sorry if I made you think I was Pocahontas' long lost ancestor!
