"There are limitations and constraints to our understanding of the world. How we perceive our world is filtered through language, a language that humans created. If we created the words that frame all of our experiences, then we have built our own consciousness as language is the condition upon which you are able to experience. Hive Mind considers the idea that we are the gods of our own universe!!" - LD
