Human expression – words and beyond: Considering the varied forms of expression available, the only limits is whatever are our limits as a species. Look at fiction. Such power. One might say, “Well, we can’t express ourselves by forming a planet out of nothing!” and then someone writes a story where a character creates a planet out of nothing: Now they have created a planet out of nothing. Or in areas where words fail, we have music and visual arts. We have shows of affection that can convey more complex things than words or poetry can. Within this there’s a lot of ambiguity of course: One of the marvels of language is that it helps dispel a lot of ambiguity related to actions. … but then it can also be used to obscure as well. And the there’s mathematics and logic, whose praise and limitations I can write about for pages.
