Language, Culture & Reality

Human language is believed to be less than 40,000 years old. There are fire pits and stone tools made by humans over 2,000,000 years old. This means human language is as artificial as a car. Human language as symbolic representation is a human invention. If you look at it a certain way language is a type of telepathy. I have a thought in my mind and I make small mouth noises, which vibrate the immediate atmosphere. These vibrations are picked up by the apparatus in your ear and are interpreted by your brain. Then you have my thought in your mind. Telepathy.

The Power of One

When I was twenty I ended up with chronic fatigue and lost the job I had worked hard all through high school to get along with about 30kg. At the time I was also attending university. Both my career and studies came to a grinding halt. It took two long years to get out of the deep black hole of fatigue I ended up in. In many respects I have these experiences to thank for the fact that health and wellbeing have become the absolute top priorities of my life. I’ve learnt from painful experience that without your health you have nothing. If good health is yours anything is possible. Amazingly the journey back up after being struck down by chronic fatigue has taken me places and opened up opportunities that I never imagined possible.
