The further our species gets from it’s bond with nature, the more difficult it is to maintain a sound mind , to be fulfilled. We are the only creatures on this Earth that use symbols to reference an alternate or secondary meaning. This documentary blatantly shows us how we use symbols for nearly anything you could imagine. There is at least one word or icon or gesture to insinuate everything our five senses can detect and then some. But along with this beautiful gift comes a flaw.
Most people are unwilling to seek and create their own interpretations of these symbols. Instead, they blindly submit to preconceived definitions and connotations given by sources unknown. Because of this, many things have been predetermined in our understanding of life without our knowledge. Words can be perverted and used to manipulate rather than to inform. Symbols can be used to segregate rather than unite. And those given the responsibility and authority to disseminate information to the public possess the ability to do with it as they choose.
