The Largest Epidemic in the World but not talked about and how to fix it.
Communication Breakdown What is the source of it (the communications difficulties amongst the people of todays cultures).
Communication between people is similar in some ways to the ways animals and plants communicate. Such as observation of patterns and results and learning. Human beings have developed languages made from words which were made from combining sounds and gestures used in the earliest languages or forms of communication amongst earlier known humans. So ultimately we are using a sophisticated form of communicating with sounds and gestures.
In today’s cultures we have created enough words to form associations or connections to images and memories in our mind. There are so many different ways to connect associations to words that many, if not most, get lost in their own personal and developed associations to each arrangement of words, phrases, sounds, inflections and presumed intention of the speaker or writer.
This, what appears to be, an inadvertent overlooking of the true evidence of a persons intention is confused with an overlooking of the true value of another person. What we have conveniently done is overlook the value of the person across from us and judge them by our ‘discovery’ of their intentions. To exacerbate this, we pronounce sentence / punishment over them also.
So it is not an inadvertent act at all but an intentional act of judgement and comparison.
This is all possible, not because we are bad people, the reality of it is we are very good people and we care about each other very much. The reason it is possible to behave as outlined above is because we have over valued the words that we have listened to or read. It is not actually the words themselves that have any value outside of being a tool.
The value is in the images and the memories and the ready to go reactions that we have created in our minds with the assistance of our friends and the institutions. If we were to step back a few feet we would remember that human beings have immeasurable value over any arrangement of words they used or our “presumed intention” we made for them.
Yes, each person has in independent and personally developed lens, so to speak, or lexicon, or map, or book of references in their mind full of interpretations and ready to go reactions and ‘solutions’. So, in many ways we each become a big boss of the person across from us that we are reading, listening to or interacting with. Whether we voice it or not we can still think this way.
We are facing the largest un-talked about epidemic ever to wash across the human condition. It is a condition of each person holding themselves in a higher regard than any other person with the assistance and collaboration of each other. We all have found social acceptance in holding these independent associations to words over the value of another person.
Every misery and every disease will vanquish when enough people see this and take action to repair it.
