Words help us to represent things we experience in our realities; they are our greatest problem and yet a great tool.
I hate words, to be quite honest with you. Why is philosophy so complex? It's not that by its very nature it is, but because words and their flexible nature make it so. People have different subjective experiences of words and so our use of them is varied.
I would imagine that back home in the ether, nothing is misunderstood because communication is done through feeling. This is not something that can be done here on Earth due to our Earthly nature - it'd start wars.
Words are our greatest enemy. Use them wisely and, if possible, use them sparingly.
