Any information in isolation is difficult for us to know what it means. To know what is true, we need contrast.
Hence our tendency to compare it to something else… to create an apple to apples or
orange to oranges comparison, as in day and night and East and West.
There is nothing wrong with comparisons, however, when ignored what is going on,
word-masters can take advantage of this trait of worduser behavior. The setup can be rigged so that a selfish word-master’s audience ends up comparing apples to oranges, or even ends up believing an apple is an orange.
There are many ways to do this. On any purchase, when you see the price, is it
expensive, cheap, or right? Right always wins in the end, of course, but it depends
entirely on who set up the comparison. Who controlled the context? Was it you? Is it a
friend? Or is it someone of low moral standards and some mastery of words?
I think understanding words goes a long way in helping you be the one in charge of
who is at the steering wheel.
Nowhere is this more important than with you
You is among the words what the sun is among the stars–every star, blade of grass,
tree, river and cloud knows where the sun is–the center of your unique verse
(universe), the fixed star that is guiding you dead and alive, asleep and awake, the
benefits of which can be known only after the fact.
“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has
been put in every heart.”
