Words do not matter. They couldn’t if they tried. Why is difficult to understand but simple to explain.
Words don’t matter because they don’t possess any — matter, that is.
In other words, words are the only matter-less particle in the universe. No microscope or imaging technique has yet been invented to see or recognize words.
That makes words more elusive to catch than even the ghost particle. the famous Neutrino.
It illustrates, as Patrick Rothfuss has said, that “using words to talk of words is like using a pencil to draw a picture of itself, on itself.”
Of course, words can be used to de-scribe the things we have words for, such as homo sapiens and heart.
For example, we can describe the heart in any way we want. We can describe it as dancing, trembling, aching, pounding, torn, or even breaking or broken.
The heart of the matter
At the heart of the matter is when hearts are just doing their job, then we tend to ignore and take them for granted.
Years of research have led me to conclude that we respond to words in the same way.
When words are just doing their job — no matter what we think that ought to be — then we forget and take them for granted.
But it’s only thanks to words why we’re here and the rest of the nature isn’t. In the rest of nature, words don’t exist for self-evident reasons. Hearts have got nothing to do with it.
Which explains why nature doesn’t talk for or of itself.
If nature is to be explained with words, only we, the wordy, can do it.
