Language, thoughts and ideas are such flimsy and tenuous creatures that I sometimes wonder how it is that we humans manage to communicate as well as we do!
I am a regular reader of a blog called "Quora Digest" which asks questions and supplies answers on just about any subject you can think of ....., but by its very nature can also lead to some misunderstandings of purpose and/or intentions.
I ran across an article today that asked the question: "Is there a fixed point from which the universe originated?"
In giving an answer to this hypothetical query I had to say that it depended on your point of view ..............., in other words, the answer was YES or NO at the same time! (Any point would be the point of origin since it all came from one spot that was the same spot everywhere since that was all there was in the beginning ...., that one point!)
This brought to mind an old TV cartoon by Nilson called "The Point" which basically said that "you don't have to have a point to have a point!"
THIS WAS MY ANSWER:
NOW AT THIS POINT[SIC] I GOT THIS REPLY:
Lucinda Gears: So is your point, in relating a fairy tale, that I should not ask questions when I don’t understand something?
To which I had to reply: No, my point is that you don't have to have a point to have a point! In actual fact the originating point of the universe is everywhere!
Which brought this answer: You certainly have a strange way of making a point. I may be a fool but no one other than me has the right to say or even insinuate it. But Thank You for your prompt answer! I will assume you are a nice person having a bad day.
Which finally brought us around to this: It was just a long drawn out way of drawing an analogy to the original question. No comparisons were meant to apply you personally!
And at that point [sic] I hope she was satisfied and had no longer taken offense.
(Gee, I hope I've made my point!!!!!!!)
