I just awoke from a dream that I thought was pretty interesting, inwhich posed a point to ponder.
I was talking to someone who took the form of my cousin for some reason and he told me, "A cake is a cake." I agreed with him, but shortly
replied, "A cake is not a cake," as I realized that a cake is not the word "cake," but something much more. He agreed with me and said,
"Yes, a cake is a cake and it is also not a cake."
I then understood this like a realization and began to speak my interpretation of it back to this person I had familiarized with my cousin. I said
something like, "So, human language is greatly flawed, there are many things we cannot portray through spoken or written text and for this reason we
will never be able to properly communicate through textual language... ever."
I got to say that this left me something to think about. I believe its true and quite obvious that people are misunderstood all the time. There are
more meanings than we have words for.
Anyway, Im still thinking about this dream and I thought it was interesting enough to post on here and see what anyone else thinks of it.
