Whenever one talks about anything or even thinks about a thing. We all translate, interpret, understand the meaning behind the words. For the words themselves are symbols, however, one may have a different meaning for the same symbol or phrase within the subject matter of the discussion.
For example, I write in a passive voice format, and mix APA formatting, without the third person, when I reference another explorer, let’s say. Moreover, I use a scholarly approach when acknowledging others success. When I speak of ZEN, I remembered Allen Watts, a beloved traveler and scholarly explorer, as was Jesus. Both dead in your terms, yet they both made their contribution historically for all of us to examine.
I’m the intrepid anthropologist today.
“Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York.
Carl Gustav Jung (/ˈjʊŋ/ YUUNG; German: [ˈkarl ˈɡʊstaf ˈjʊŋ]; 26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychotherapist and psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology. Jung proposed and developed the concepts of the extraverted and the introverted personality, archetypes, and the collective unconscious.
Sigmund Freud (German pronunciation: [ˈziːkmʊnt ˈfʁɔʏt]; born Sigismund Schlomo Freud; 6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939) was an Austrian neurologist who became known as the founding father of psychoanalysis.
Freud qualified as a Doctor of Medicine at the University of Vienna in 1881, and then carried out research into cerebral palsy, aphasia and microscopic neuroanatomy at the Vienna General Hospital.”

There is a great deal of historic material that could be debated and reviewed, but who wants to go backward. Look back-ward at how we got so forward; accept for yourself what you are presently bearing in mind, that is also, unfolding around you now. Insert and assert yourself within it and talk about it.
