What makes "education" TED's most popular topic?
While I see "education" as connoting some kind of formalized structure or process requiring certification as validation of "learning" or the possessing of a body of knowledge, I prefer to see education as the result of making meaning. Rather than something that is done to you, or something that you possess, it is something you do for yourself, to yourself, with and from others. It is not an end product--i.e. I am "educated." It is an ongoing process, thankfully. It should be the most popular topic, because it's about active engagement with our perceptions of how things are, and how we may want them to be.

Stephen Cave: The 4 stories we tell ourselves about death
I agree. We use language in a limiting attempt to explain our understandings derived through our illusory senses. The language creates different connotative realities. I wouldn't say your vantage point is neutral (think circle), but rather, a point of perception, which you have well clarified.
