.....meaning exists in the way that we use words; the patterns of word use create the system of meaning. There's no getting away from language in getting to complex meanings.

 

Think about it this way. We have 7,000 languages. Each of these languages encompasses a world-view, encompasses the ideas and predispositions and cognitive tools developed by thousands of years of people in that culture. Each one of those languages offers a whole encapsulated universe. So we have 7,000 parallel universes, some of them are quite similar to one another, and others are a lot more different. The fact that there's this great diversity is a real testament to the flexibility and the ingenuity of the human mind. The fact that we're able to take so many different perspectives and create such an incredibly diverse set of ways of looking at the world, that is something first to be celebrated, but also something to learn from: flexibility and diversity are at the very heart of what makes us human and what makes us so smart. I think the more we understand how people are able to take all these different perspectives, and able to change the way they think, the better we'll understand the nature of being human. 

Anne Caspari's insight:

This is an excellent article on language and complexity with regard to the construction of meaning, time, direction, gender and reality. I like it very much. Worth while reading the whole thing.

An Evolutionary Synthesis: Barbara Marx Hubbard - A New World View | Integral Life | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

This Evolutionary Synthesis is an emerging world view that reveals a set of new possibilities for our generation which if communicated and acted upon lead not only to fixing current problems but opening up an ever-evolving future of magnificent opportunities.

In this Synthesis we take the largest possible perspective and recognize ourselves as a young species born into a universe that appears to be designed for ever more conscious life.

The Many Dimensions of Change | Spiral Dynamics Integral (SDi)

The Many Dimensions of Change | Spiral Dynamics Integral (SDi) | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Don Edward Beck:    All human groupings appear to be on the move, but towards different futures. The deep tectonic plates of human existence are shifting beneath the surface.

 So, here is “change” in eight different dimensions or variations. Perhaps you can add others. The first five function within the current set of givens, called Change of the First Order. The second three operate within a new set of givens, thus Change of the Second Order. We often call it deep change, profound change, or even radical change to signify this category. New wine demands new wineskins.
