I wonder if Ms.Pac Man ever got bored with the conversation. There were so many asteroids that needed to be shot back then; maybe they were discussing how to clear sector 7b so they could expand their empire. Who knows? Not me. That's way over my pay grade.
Generally speaking, my use of words correspond to my direction of intent within the linguistic horizon in play. Rarely do I parrot. Yes yes, I'm an odd one. I'm okay with that.
If we look at words as though they are tendrils, like of plant matter, curled into grasping shapes, the analogy comes along showing that certain tendril shapes can only grasp what is shaped as graspable for them. So, for instance, supposing I say some X, Y & Z, but as these certain specific tendrils go in to the mind of The Other, they only pull out "You are weird" (fair enough), or "You are deep" (similar to 'weird' in dismissiveness, but without the hostility); my choices are to find someone more suited to discuss X, Y & Z with, or try again with different words.
Thinking is free, and you don't have to believe everything you think.
