Every individual raised in the western world has been molded by this idea that language is quintessential. Well, it is, but also it is not. Words are simple tools to communicate a message. Before language this was done with gestures. Words are thin air. They are vibrations of air molecules going into your ear. We have given so much power to language that language has turned into our tyrant. We have given this much importance to language that we think there is nothing else but it, that the world itself is a linguistic construct. Language doesn’t create the world. The description of reality is not reality. The word is not the thing. Language is only a matter of seeing the world in a higher resolution. The more eloquent we are the easier it gets to notice the subtle nuances in the world. But we should never think that language can substitute the world.

Think. Create. Inspire.
