I’m not kidding.
Nor am I one to make a new opinion:
If you’ve been told in the beginning is 0 (zero), you’ve been SHAMMED.
In case you wonder what’s the opposite of SHAMMED, well, it’s genuine.
If you’re interested in genuine, and in how you and your family and friends have been shammed for the past 2023 years with no end in sight, then read on.
In the beginning
As you can see in broad daylight, I’m not one to make up new opinions.
There are no two ways about it.
In the beginning is the word
That includes the beginning of SHAMMED, which is a word — hence couldn’t be anything else if it tried — or we wouldn’t be here talking about you, shammed and genuine.
In the wordless world
In the wordless world, everything you have a word for doesn’t exist for self-evident reasons.
Whether that’s told, SHAMMED, or genuine doesn’t make a difference.
If you have a word for it, it’s a word.
Of that you can be sure: You can bet your life on it.
Call it a dream, it doesn’t make any difference.
In the wordy world
In the wordy world, at the risk of repeating myself…
- In the beginning is the word.
- In the beginning of every word is the word.
- If you have a word for it, it’s a word.
In broad brush strokes
- “Using words to talk of words is like using a pencil to draw a picture of itself, on itself.” – Patrick Rothfuss
- “What a word means, a sentence cannot say.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein
- “Call it a dream, it doesn’t change anything.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein
- The appearance of words revolutionized evolution.
- Words are a prison, but even a prison is a home if you have the key.
- The word-user was the word’s idea for getting more words.
- Words are a gift we’re meant to keep.
- Words are what the word-users respond to.
- Words are how you aim at what you’re looking for.
- Everything you know is a word.
- Words do not only change everything you have a word for, they create it.
- Words don’t describe the world, they describe how we see it.
- Words have not only changed what we see, but how we see.
- Words are the limits of your world. Once you see that, you’re limitless.
- Words aren’t taught at school.
- The story of words isn’t told.*
- Word-masters have know in the beginning is the word since the beginning of words.
- Words tend to get mistaken for evidence and often get treated that way.
- The word-users love to use their words.
- Words can be denied only by confirming them.
- If you ignore what words can do to you, then you can have no empathy for what words can do to others.
- Words do not matter (they possess zero electric charge).
- Words have no meaning.
There is more to it, but knowing words — what words are, do, and have — takes time.
Then it takes yet more time to know you — the most important word in the alphabet — what you are, what you do, and what you have.
Let yourself be surprised. Even better, surprise yourself.
Surprise is the essence of humor, and nothing is more surprising than truth.” – Bill Watterson
The surprise will be worth the time invested in the end because those two, word and you, are all it takes for the limits of your world to morph into limitless opportunities forever and a day.
