Everyone knows that words have powerful effects on the mind.
But the words we use daily are not words that fully connect with our experience, and the meanings they carry are meanings that have been taught to us by others.
What does it signify, when our living experience can only find expressions in words that are borrowed from others?
Who originally determined these words?
And who decided what words have what meaning?
We may be able to track a word back to its linguistic source in a distant past, but can we determine what knowledge or what intelligence gave it shape and form?
