"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
- Shakespeare, Rome and Juliet
Names and labels are a thing of semantics. Remove the name and its essence still remains.
There is no power in a name or a label, because things still exist regardless if they are named or not.
To get to the real "power" of anything is to understand it. Understand its nature. That is power.
When we name a thing, we only blur its true essence with a delusional covering of words, concepts, definitions, rationalizations, and imposed
meanings. There are no amount of words that can 100% completely and utterly contain all the information of something as simple as an apple, nor can
words ever capture its essence. I can detail an apple's color, taste, and scent, but no matter how many names, words, or explanations we use, an
apple will forever be a mystery unless it is experienced by taste, smell, touch, and perception.
When we name, define, or explain something,... we lose its essence and only focus on the name, definition, and explanation itself.
