[Early 16th century. < Latincommunicat-, past participle ofcommunicare “share” < communis“common”]:
“Emotional wellbeing flows from the ability to clearly communicate.” Deepak Chopra
This simple view of communication leads to the full definition:
Communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source-point across a distance to receipt-point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt-point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source-point.
Duplication is the act of reproducing something exactly. Emanated means “came forth.”
The formula of communication is cause, distance, effect, with intention, attention and duplication with understanding. The definition and formula of communication open the door to understanding this subject. By dissecting communication into its component parts, we can view the function of each and thus more clearly understand the whole. L. Ron Hubbard
“In any art form or activity one must conceive of the beholder (if only himself). To fail to do so is to invite disappointment and eventual dissatisfaction with one’s own creations.
“An artist who disagrees thoroughly with the ‘taste’ of his potential audience cannot of course communicate with that audience easily. His disagreement is actually not based on the audience but on former inabilities to communicate with such audiences or rejections by a vaguely similar audience.
“The lack of desire to communicate with an art form may stem from an entirely different inability than the one supposed to exist.”
— L. Ron Hubbard, ART
