WORDS AND HOW LANGUAGE IS USED AGAINST US (NEWS AND CONVERSATIONS)

by gimp @, OZ. STH. CORAL SEA., Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 05:29 @ FordPrefect

Words are symbols that represent objects in the real world. They are the barks, howls, meows, roars, and other such animal noises that humans use to communicate. By causing a sound to represent an object, humans developed Symbolic Language. This is the one trait that sets humans apart from the other mammalians resident on planet Earth and has allowed them to become the dominate species. Our brains are programmed using words and our thoughts exist as words. Words allow humans to communicate quickly and explicitly. When you a re trying to bring down a mastodon for dinner rapid communication can be a distinct advantage.

In the language of logic it would be difficult to refute any of the above.
