What says Relationship -------------------------------------------
The mystery of receiving information
Should a mirror sit in a room alone and perceive itself perceiving the reflection as the object being reflected perceives the face of its self
And are the two communicating or only cooperating through the functionality that exists in existing
As one man speaks to another there is surely something more happening than merely cooperation
Hearing more than just words seeing more than just a smile
Expanded by senses the means that reality unfolds
Or is it just a diverted sentence in a story that each word cannot comprehend
Being limited to only its meaning it cannot grasp what is outside its definition without an audience to suggest there is a relationship at all
Lori, Is this a rewrite of an old poem. Just asking because I vaguely remember something like this several years ago from you.
This is one of the most through provoking writes on communication. Not because the thought is new, but the mirror's awareness of reflecting is interesting. I like that it's not all about chatter since most of our communication is through body language. It's visual as well as verbal and auditory.
After twenty yeas of marriage I can say that I think some days are much like this line: "cooperating through the functionality that exists in existing" but on other days its a carnival of sounds, colors and wonder.
PS- the mirrors had me seeing a female and male version on animated furniture from Beauty and the Beast...lol
Although I would be inclined to agree, communication is perhaps more than a refractive reflection, can we really claim that it imbues armed exude. The concept of syntactics claims that communication consists of three distinct items : the intended meaning of the author, the words or syntax used to convey this meaning, and the translated understanding of the observer. So almost never is the item the same to both participants. Almost depressing huh? I like to feel I have something to give that has real precedence. Maybe this is sheer grandiose delusion. )-:
