    Let's put it this way:

    Objective reality is what gives meaning to words; words don't give meaning to objective reality. When your kid comes to you and says, "What does this word mean?" you don't...

    It doesn't surprise me that you believe that. You have shown yourself to have a, shall we say, very "malleable" belief system.

    I agree, carpe makes me think, not in a "He makes a good point; perhaps I should reevaluate my position" sort of way but more in a "How do I best explain and defend my position?" sort of way. One of...

    The word "better" implies an objective standard ("better" compared to what, and for whom?). You also beg the question that "to leave the world a better place than I found it" is meaningful in and of...

    Exactly. They are symbols that reference something that objectively exists. As this relates to your worldview, the most you can say is, "I do X because it makes me happy." But you can not say, "My...

    Yes, it was my example, but it seems you missed the point. The symbol might be arbitrary, but the thing it references -- objective reality -- is not.

    Similarly, when you claim that your life has...
