I would agree that communication without intelligence is but producing noise, but why should intelligence without communications be irrelevant? Isn't it relevant for the owner, even if he does not choose to communicate?

Or was the statement meant for marines only? That would make more sense.




Knowledge in itself is not power, applied knowledge is.

Yes, I would agree to that.
But the original statement was about communication. Communication and application are not the same.
That's why I asked in the first place.

How would you apply knowledge if not by communication?

The same way you apply anything else.
Through ACTION
ACTION and COMMUNICATON are certainly not one and the same.

So if communication is not an act, what is it?

Communication is action, but action is not necessarily communication. Let's not waste time by making this a bigger deal than it is.

communication is a kind of act, not all action is communication.

Indeed, let's not, as to name all kinds of action there exists would be completely off-topic.

I knew it was going to be interesting to see how far something so simple would spiral into the morass.

Dan, I would dare to differ from you on one simple point. If someone speaks by their actions, do you think that's not communication? I mean what if I stop my car right in front of yours. I'mm saying that I don't want to hit your car. If I ran my car on top of yours I would be saying I want to run over your car. I don't know. I think actions speak louder than words. You dig?

A person comunicates something when he lets another person know what he thinks.

Action is different because you can act without letting anybody know your true intentions.
