I find myself questioning this line of reasoning.
I think the easiest way for me to express my meaning is to expand the subliminal influence phenomenon to languages other than English.
Do other languages lend themsleves to this kind of interpretation, or is English the language of choice for this intensely subtle application?
As humans, we are constrained to what we commonly have available to us as the most expedient and effecitve means of communications. Perhaps the
medium and physics have as much to do with the ultimate form of the construct, but a construct it is nevertheless.
I raise this question to extend the debate. This is a facinating perspective to a haunting question: "What do people really mean when they
communicate with one another?"
But I find most of our reasoned pattern-finding to be somewhat 'selective' at times. So I do not offer a counter argument, nor claim your
observations are not accurate; I just want to see how far we can extend these patterns to determine if they are universal.
I once heard something that I consider a key to my cautious exploration in these matters. And matter is relevent to the argument.
From all we can see and hear, we seem only to be able (thus far) to measure reality in a very limited way. The question of dimensionality is key, in
my estimation. Between the points of reality which we identify as ourselves and the worl around us is intelligable, inferrable, 'space' or
We hang on this framework of reality 'as if' we were part of it, when it seems more likely that it, much like the inferences you draw from analysis,
could be a matter of perceptive choice and not necessarily design.
You have demonstrated a correlation between meaning and the choice of meaning. I applaud the sensitivty and creativity necessary to observe and
synthesize a meaningful pattern. I can't help but wonder what is the proportion of each.
Now I would challenge the notion that as people communicate, could it be that we have constructed the patterns as a collective uncioncsious
manifestation? If so why? If purposeful, who's purpose does it represent?
It was not I, nor I suppose you, who coined some of the phrases you present in your argument. Was such an act pursposeful, or coincidental, or simply
the 'flow' of reality as our minds interpret it?
Star and Flag for you, excellent topic, and great effort!
