Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig, huh?

 

This topic made me really think about sense and nonsense of words and communication itself. And since most of the time our communication is non-verbal I first went for some sign language theme. But...this just didn't work out and so I was back at square one but I still thought about the abstract character of words.

Do you know what I mean? Did you ever repeat a single word so many times that it eventually sounds totally absurd?

So, in the end words mean nothing until you make them meaningful by interpretation or make them come true by actions.
