You could use meme. But what I’m thinking of is more the nature of the totality hidden within the thing. Potentiality.
Looking at the original sentences, I first said “Words.” Within the word “Words.”, the sentence that followed was hiding within it where Words was going to be followed by “contain other words inside them”.
But that Words was going to lead to that sentence that followed was unknown when I wrote “Words.”
Yet it still unfolded from it.
Not a tautology, no.
Rather, seeing words-as-containers.
Hm. Kind of like that. If I was to put the concept in a mereology context, the whole would be any possible usage of a word or its synonymous words or phrases.
SO the whole is finite but quite large.
I love how well the two songs worked together here. Still makes me smile. I worried “what was being automated” wouldn’t be clear but going by responses in various places, it was clear enough
If I write and you then read the word “Pink”, several related words, images, concepts or maybe music, physical sensations, smells, should try to enter your consciousness in that moment.Might be too fast to pay notice but it should. So a “most common possible usage” set should present itself to you in a moment, ready for Pink Elephant or Pink Lemonade or My white socks and underwear turned a strange color when Tommy put his new red socks in the washing machine.
It’s one of those odd things that crops up now and again. “Bicameral Mind”. I haven’t heard that phrase in a long long time.If I remember right, the idea was that you had one part of the brain that issued commands and the other part of the brain simply obeys.It’s a variation, ultimately, of the “rational vs animal” mind and it certainly inspired a lot of sci-fi. This notion of human zombies was big for a while – see Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which was right in the era of Bicarmeral Mind – and it was totally plausible that you COULD have mindless zombie people who simply ran on instinct and/or obeyed without question because of this hypothetical split.
It’s a fascinating notion though: consciousness depending upon inner chatter, inner chatter not developing until extinguishing the gods – the idea of it is fascinating.
Indeed. At first I thought the word choices felt a bit ‘much’ but they are precise choices.
pristine is prior to asking questions about it or disturbing it in any way. It’s a perfect word choice.
