Nouns and Verbs

The universe can be divided into two realms: nouns and verbs. Knowledge and knowing.

The first realm, Nouns, cannot exist without verbs. I mean, "exist" is a verb, after all. The second realm, Verbs, on the other hand, is meaningless without nouns.

In order for a noun to relate to another noun, this first noun must momentarily depart the realm of nouns, and travel via the second realm -- verbs. It is important that any noun has to leave his realm in order to relate (verb) to another member of the same realm (nouns).

But, as soon as one realm is abandoned, that realm could very well manifest itself differently! Therefore, no verb can genuinely claim existence (noun), and no noun can genuinely claim to know (verb)!

Oversimplified, sure, and belittling by design, but how in the world did this Language Removed merit a PhD?
