Energetic Mind

Verbal communication, with all of its advantages, is still a lossy platform. Our bodies use electricity to activate muscles which squeeze air past vocal cords, in turn causing pressure fluctuations which result in sound waves. That is such a waste of energy.

The written word, sadly, isn't much better. Even though it requires less energy to create, the written word has the potential for even more waste. The energy depleted through misinterpretation, and used to transmit and rebroadcast thoughts as written words, can slap an exponent on the equation for loss.

There's a part of me begging to wonder. It's ethereal. I hate myself for it.
