it's like a tumbleweed. understanding changes with new things learned. not that any of these words mean much. humans made words in an attempt to understand and describe the world around them, which made it all false. when there are no words, then it is real and can be likened to the flowing life essence of a flowering tree. when there are no words, then it is understood.
