      Interesting. What is the presentation for?

      I have one random thing to add. You misquote the bible "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God." The full quote would be "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Although everyone quotes it as this, I think this is actually a poor translation. The Greek word used for "Word" is "Logos". Although sometimes logos can be translated as word, a more accurate translation in this instance would be "divine knowledge" or "divine animating principle". Stoic philosophers elaborated on Logos as an emanating principle pervading all of meaning through which all things came to be, by which all things were ordered, and to which all things returned.
      Substitute this understanding of "Logos" for "Word" and how much more beautiful, poetic, and true does this quote become?

      The argument I was making is that we reduce our understanding of the word "word" to mean linguistic symbol when in fact, it means everything you just defined Logos as.
