Raymond Ie Posted over 4 years ago We need better tools for cooperation - not just better tools for our existing ways of communicating. Thanks.Yes, I agree. You provide some good examples. It may be unreachable to obtain a "complete" understanding of what your meaning of "x" is, but I might get closer and closer to it as I invest more time learning about you, your experiences, etc. But that requires an investment of time and other resources on both parties. But maybe if there could be some Facebook-like data store of your experiences and associations of those experiences with your words...software could analyze those data and propose an improved mapping of it against my experiences and my associated words. Perhaps, the words could eventually be eliminated and the end points of the mappings would be some new form of tokened symbols that would have greater precision of meaning to each individual than words would.
