A few days ago I heard someone say how communication is what society is built upon; that everything involving two or more people boils down to communication. Our successes and failures in every aspect of life are determined by how well or poorly we communicate.|
That concept has been echoing in my brain ever since then. I want to communicate to anyone reading this journal on this topic. The person I referred to above also pointed out how most communications between people don't really convey any meaning or information at all -- just an empty social lubricant so to speak (or "small talk" in other words). I want this to be a meaningful communication.
So here I am more or less echoing what I overheard without adding content to it -- Not necessarily a bad thing to those who the ideas I'm relating are new. It is unnecessary to those who already are familiar with the idea.
I talked about how everything boils down to interactions between people in this journal a long, long time ago. Substitute communication for the word interaction and we're in been there, done that, get out the shovels were going into paleontology territory.
Ok, fine. So what does all this mean to me? I don't know. All I know is that what I have related above has been stuck in my head for the last few days and I wanted to find a way full of meaning (or meaningful -- pick your preferred way of saying it) to express my thoughts. Well, I wasn't making much progress in sorting it out in my head, so I figured I'd just pour the stuff onto the page and see what kind of stain it leaves. At least it's out of my head and maybe I can get something else into that vacuous echo chamber of mine now.
