Communication

Definition:
1. exchange of information: the exchange of information between people, e.g. by means of speaking, writing, or using a common system of signs or behavior
2. message: a spoken or written message

[Early 16th century. < Latincommunicat-, past participle ofcommunicare “share” < communis“common”]:

“Emotional wellbeing flows from the ability to clearly communicate.” Deepak Chopra

~ The problem with communication is the illusion that is has occurred. ~
~ If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself. If we are weak, words will be of no help. ~
~ Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood. ~
~ Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people. ~
~ It seemed rather incongruous that in a society of supersophisticated communication, we often suffer from a shortage of listeners. ~
~ The most important things are the hardest to say, because words diminish them. ~
~ We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak. ~
~ The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives ~
~ Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after. ~
~ Communication is the real work of leadership. ~
~When in doubt, Communicate! Communication is the universal solvent. “Communication, in essence, is the shift of a particle from one part of space to another part of space. A particle is the thing being communicated. It can be an object, a written message, a spoken word or an idea. In its crudest definition, this is communication.  All human endeavor depends utterly on a full knowledge of the real basics of communication. To master communication, one must understand it.”

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

Affinity, reality and communication form the ARC triangle, with each point dependent upon the other two. These are the component parts of understanding.

“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
