Are People Ever Really Not Strangers


Within the realm of the human condition, human beings have the capacity to communicate.
Humans endeavor to perpetuate a sense of purpose by finding out if there is a connection in us
and to the existence of a supreme being. Are people ever really not strangers? Do we capitulate
and become docile puppets tethered on a string in the hands of fate? No matter how hard we try
no matter to what extent we go to achieve our aims and goals, at the end of it all, none of this is
possible without the one word, purpose. We attempt to fill the hunger in a void, locked within
our souls that seems to be starved of sustenance of intellectual vitamins and minerals.
Humanity has strived to delve into a more profound understanding of ourselves and our
universe relating to the matter in it. Synonymously, we create tools and instruments gaining
better vision into the heavens by deploying various probes compromising the orbits of the other
planets in our solar system, that aid us in grasping a facet of our existence.
Human communication is defined as a process where one’s thoughts, ideas, and feelings, are
expressed (encoded), albeit verbal or nonverbal messages that are; sent, derived, and
comprehended (decoded), juxtaposed by specific characteristics deemed conscious, unconscious,
intentional, or unintentional, with understanding (feedback) made manifest.
Ultimately, we search to find reason in our existence and thereby affirming a cosmological
constant, corroborating to the realization that people are not ever strangers. The similarities that
are parallel to the up to date information we now receive as consistent as the movement of
bodies in our Solar System. The theoretical problems involved with the cosmological constant
are recapitulated. “It is purpose that defines us. It is purpose that drives us, that guides us”
(Matrix Reloaded, 2003).
Life is, in principle, the movement of atoms radiating energy. Therefore affirming the
primordial structures of atoms and the realm of the mind are most similar and intertwined in
consistent and recognizable patterns. Are people ever really not strangers? Delving into
preconceived notions and ideas, lends itself to the Bible verse from Ephesians 2:19, “Now
therefore you are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the
household of God.” (Holy Bible, KJV 2003) The mind encounters a dichotomy of the ideology
of human differences tending to be prejudicial when an environment is exceedingly
heterogeneous lends to be the crux of the situation.
The functions of nonverbal communication are to convey meaning of a message given
simultaneously without words. In waiting for someone who never comes, you would say
“Waiting for Godot.” It is an absurdist play that explores themes of existentialism. It is defined
as; “a philosophical attitude associated especially, and with Heidegger, Jaspers, Marcel, and
Sartre opposed to rationalism and empiricism, that stresses the individual’s unique position as a
self-determining agent responsible for the authenticity of his or her choices” (dictionary.com).
The randomness of the plot causes one to wonder if anything is going to happen, and whether
there is any meaning in anything in life. The story operates on its own set of rules, its own
system where nothing happens, nothing is certain, and there’s never anything to do. The
vagabonds in the chronicle, are waiting for Godot, a man, or perhaps a deity. The transients can’t
be sure if they’ve met Godot, if they’re waiting in the right place, if this is the right day, or even
whether Godot is going to show up at all. While they wait, they meander with their time with a
series of mundane activities and superficial conversations sprinkled with serious reflection.
Upon reflection, anthropologically and philosophically speaking, intercultural communication
pertains to individuals collaborating, expressing thought, ideas, and action. The early axioms of
Imhotep, the 42 principles of Maat, the metaphysics of King Ankhenaton, and the advent of
Greek and Roman philosophers had toiled with the duty to make the intangible, tangible.
Mentally wrestling with universals; existence delineated by repeatability and consistent nature
through a sequence of alternate interactions as substance.
In respect to the tenants of realism, it is defined as material objects existing in themselves,
apart from the mind’s consciousness of them. This notion falls in alignment with the precepts of
Aristotle and Aquinas whom elaborated, “All physical things are composed of matter and form,”
(Moore p.88). Meaning form and matter are synonymous. The world is absurd. Everyone has
personal freedom, but with that comes personal responsibility. It’s not like you can expect to
encapsulate the entire human condition in a simplistic exchange between a couple of guys sitting
around with nothing to do. “We are all here to do, what we are all here to do.” (Matrix
Reloaded, 2003). The inter connectedness of the human condition is prevalent and a
cosmological constant within our known universe and strange as people think, we are not
strangers at all.
