Listening is risky

Wednesday, March 12, 2008
Before I learned to think properly, I learned to speak. Sometime later I learned to listen. Somewhere along the line, I learned to read ( I've heard that reading is dangerous ). I am just now learning to write ( and that is not without some risk ).

And that is why ambiguity is so wonderful! Can you 'square' a thought?

    WE are the people
    we ARE the people
    we are THE people
    we are the PEOPLE

I count six disctinct messages in the words above,

    six thoughts,
    six ways to say them,
    six ways to hear them,
    six ways to read them.
    six ways to write them.
    six ways to be the people.

I'm looking for a seventh, got any new ideas?
