I’ve posted a couple of Poems of One Words (such asThe ART of, You are what you EAT) which are a play on a word which is found in other words to which it shares some relationship. They are visual poems rather than for recitation, because it only in seeing them that you get the word play. I’ve added photos (most are my own photos) to enhance the visual poetry though you can replace them with your own images. Links to all of these poems can be found at Poems of One Words. It was my tags search tool in WordPress itself that caused me to see a list of words that had the same few letter combinations within them. For in the Tags search tool as soon as you type a couple of letters it lists all the words that have that combination of letters anywhere in the words I’ve previously used as tags.
[NOTES: Meme* and connectome* are terms I encountered in recent reading I’ve been doing on the human brain and the existence of free will. They are controversial terms in the sense that not all scientists even agree as to their existence and role in shaping us, but I found the concepts apropos to “me”!
The notion of a MEta-narrative** – a human narrative that ties many or all humans together through a shared history – is not accepted by post-modernists who tend to think each person spins his/her own narrative and gives meaning to history rather than receiving meaning from history/society. But I do believe as humans we share a common memory known as history which shapes “me”. I see myself as part of and accept the Christian meta-narrative. It is part of what it is to be human and certainly what distinguishes us from all other creatures on earth in that they have no awareness of sharing such a history.]
