I just finished watching the movie “Arrival”….and it made me think about how much distance we put between each other with all our different languages.

That’s a big thought, huh?

Probably not.

But….it’s a good thought.

What if we were able to speak a language that was common to all of us and we could understand each other completely?

Would we build another Tower of Babel?

Would things work out?

Would we get along?

Probably not.

We can’t get along with all the people who speak English.

Speaking words we can understand doesn’t get us any closer to understanding what hides behind the words.

Nothing brings us closer to “one”.

It’s a thought, though.

Pretty cool movie……
