The English language passed one billion words not too long ago. That means the number of words has doubled in the past thirty years. Many concepts are well covered by words, these are not the problem. Concepts that are not well covered by words are more of a challenge. We end up using language more subjectively. Trying to squeeze meaning out of words that may or may not be clear to the audience. You are very mathematically minded. You want everything to add up and that’s OK. I don’t need to explain to you that the current state of Physics won’t allow for the explanation of everything. I don’t know if we will make it to that point in our lifetime, Damn. We are like brilliant children that are trying to be grown-ups. We want everything at once. We know a lot of stuff, but there is so much more. What I like about philosophy isn’t that everything adds up perfectly. It’s that the journey or adventure of life goes in the right direction. I understand how important imagination is to new discoveries and how easy it is to get bound up in the head from thinking. Sometimes frustration can ignite imagination in ways deliberate meditation will not. Other times, you need to step away, forget about for a while. Then it hits you like snapping out of a blonde moment. I hope this arrives in the spirit in which it is intended.
