Do the following words have any meaning in the context of the atheistic, materialistic world of enforced equality and diversity in which we live? Or do they describe old-fashioned, outmoded concepts? If they don't have any meaning where did the meaning they obviously once must have had come from? Was it purely illusionary or did it derive from something we have now forgotten or, worse, denied and rejected?
I am tempted to add Beauty and Truth.
Some of these words might still mean something but do they mean what they did? Can they mean what they did in a world that denies transcendence? And are you content to live in a world in which these words have no meaning other than perhaps a literary or artistic one?
Note: The idea for this post comes from Owen Barfield, specifically his short science fiction story Night Operation which describes how our world might be in the 22nd century. Most people live underground in disused sewer systems, driven there by fear of terrorist attacks and airborne biochemical invasions. Barfield doesn't mention climate change but that could also be called into play as a reason for fleeing the open-skied Earth and Nature in this way. Life has been reduced to its biological side only though supported by advanced technology. Barfield's insight is that the meaning of words can change and when that happens we might lose connection to the reality originally described by those words. Then the words might disappear altogether and we have no access to the concepts behind them. Even if we might sense these concepts, without words to describe them we are extremely limited in our ability to come to terms with them. Words can imprison but they can also liberate and release. Without them we would be little better than animals and if we reduce our lexicon qualitatively (quantitatively also but the qualitative sense is more important) we reduce ourselves as human beings.
