As you’d expect, your lesson begins with the first step.
Step number one is knowing that the word-masters have known in the beginning is the word since the beginning.
You don’t need to be a word-master to know what that means.
But you must know how it all began.
It all began with the invention of words, hence the saying “In the beginning is the word”.
Unless you’ve lived in a cave on a distant planet until today, I think you’ve likely heard about or seen in the beginning is the word in print.
Above marked in red, nothing that you now have a word for exists in the wordless world Before Words, for what I think explains itself.
Equally marked in red, everything you now have a word for exists in the wordy world After Words because in the beginning is the word.
That’s how humanity, you, and everything else you have a word for began.
That’s right, a word couldn’t be anything else if it tried.
- “Using words to talk of words is like using a pencil to draw a picture of itself, on itself. Impossible. Confusing. Frustrating.” – Patrick Rothfuss
- “What a word means, a sentence cannot say.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein
Therefore, without further ado, let’s move on to step 2.
The story of words isn’t told partly because of Step 1.
If the story of words were told, it would be the death of the world’s longest-lasting lies.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” – Word-masters
In the beginning is the word.
God is no exception.
It couldn’t be anything else if it tried.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” – Word-masters
Words were invented 13,750 years ago.
Writing was invented 5,000 years ago.
Nobody knows what word was spoken in the 8,750 years between the invention of words and the invention of writing.
We know that during the word’s first 8,750 years, they were spoken only, meaning from whence the words had come, tither they returned again.
We don’t know where that was or could have been.
If the story of words were told, it’d be the end of the organizations built on the world’s most successful lies.
They couldn’t continue to tell them in peace.
Now you know why the story of words isn’t told.
“Strange times are these in when old and young are taught falsehoods in school.” – Plato
Whether a lie happened or not doesn’t matter. All that matters it’s believed.
