Energy, A Word That Needs To Be Replaced

Energy is what is often used as a term to describe all life but this term - energy has one flaw and that is the flaw that is expressed by a complete lack of bias about the way that energy is expressed.

After all an explosion with all of its harm and destructive qualities, in most cases, is energy and a babies smile and the capacity to do so is also energy.

I feel it would be a good thing for science to embrace the feeling of love, compatibility and harmony. I grant those are three words but those three words describe a single feeling.

I know that that may be something that causes scientists to bristle a bit and it is not my intent to single out any one group as needing improvement - certainly we're all here to improve ourselves and apply that improvement to ourselves and others.

The term energy, I feel, needs some improvement. I'm going to ask you to think about that over the weekend - just give it some thought - what would you use as a term - a universal term mind you, that covers all aspects of life?

I'm going to suggest that you start with those feelings I mentioned - see if you can bring those feelings on for yourself, then consider - do we even need a single word but since that is popular to have a word like that give it some thought.

When we express, to the best of our ability - terminology, words, descriptions we all regardless of our language try to express them in a way that represents how we feel even though our minds want us to express what we think.

The problem there is that our minds are all different and conditioned by different aspects of life and different circumstances but all of our feelings even though we may have them at different times - our feelings are exactly the same. This is why I speak about feelings so much here.

In my experience the animals and yes the plants also express feelings exactly the same way. I believe that since that does exist, at least as far as I have been able to observe in my life, that the attempt to superimpose thought as a means that is universal is fraught with pitfalls and confusion.

How many times in your life have you spoken to a loved one, to say nothing of a friend or colleague and you were both using words that you thought the other person understood and yet the result was a complete misunderstanding or in some cases in business, a foul-up.

When we begin to root our means of communication in feeling then we will begin to develop the universal language. I'm not expecting you to come up with that over the weekend but I do want to suggest that you give it a try to see what you might wish to suggest, in whatever language you speak or know, a word that might replace - energy.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Robert,
I thought long and hard about this, given my personal interest. It seems that so many words that come to mind to re-name "energy" have many uses and broad meanings. It might be nice to create a brand new word, but I believe the word should come from the experience, or uh the definition. I am intrigued and will continue to think about it.
For now, I came up with inter-vitality, onergy (one-ergy), unitergy (unite-ergy) or for the times now.. com-ergy? (Like the internet .com)
Thanks for generating food for thought.
