I suffer from severe depression and try to find ways to feel better

I discovered this project when I decided to try and define words without looking at a dictionary

I have a problem where when something doesn’t seem super important I don’t ever think about it and so forget the most basic definitions all the time

I decided to take some of the most basic words and define them in the simplest ways I could think of without causing conflicts between words.

Over time society has been perverting the meaning of things so when you think of others definition of some words they don’t really coalesce with other words

Anyway here’s my language mirror



I was thinking others could help me refine my definitions with their definitions

There are trade-offs in every way of being. Being susceptible to depression is no different. Some people are so cut-off from their emotions they feel nothing. The idea if bipolar opposites in psychology is pretty well study. You might find this book helpful in giving you insight into the bipolar swings we can have inside our brains. Just being aware of these types can help you maintain some perspective along with some control. Brave of you to share your feelings. Good work.



It's little nerdy and pedantic at first. But it's really cool stuff. I actually got involved in with book working on an artificial intelligence system. Before you can have artificial intelligence you first have to understand what intelligence really is. I got out of the field when I became convinced I wasn't qualified to define intelligence.

I would define love as being little acts of kindness, caring, and affection for someone without any expectations for anything in return.

I keep seeing "good" so I have to ask.

Can benevolence not be given to something "bad"?

I only ask because much of your definitions rely on perception and human judgement is flawed.

For instance I see fire as beautiful, it's very stimulating for the eye, mesmerising.


More to add:

But fire is neither good nor bad, such judgements are based upon perception. I wouldn't call my house burning down beautiful or good but a warming camp fire at the end of the day is both beautiful and good/beneficial.
