lunary vs. lunacy – language loopholes.

Language is the blood of the soul, into which thoughts run and out of which they grow. –Oliver Wendell Holmes

But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought. –George Orwell

Lunacy – insanity; intermittent madness; foolish acts.

Lunary – of, and relating to the moon; a name for an herb also known as honesty; it is said because gravity has linked the earth and moon together, they share a divine honesty with one another; the moon is the basis for modern time-keeping, and we accept what it tells us without hesitation [now, that’s trust].

Languages and their internal links to one another never cease to amaze me. The ways the slightest change in letters, positioning, emphasis, etc. can alter meanings and mix messages. One can only marvel at the genius behind the evolution of language from one culture to the next throughout time.

In the case of the above example, their letter-by-letter spelling is almost identical – yet, one brings about thoughts of derangement, while the other is linked to honesty and the connection of our moon. The only difference, just from looks, seems to be the C and the R. The c and the r. The see and the are. See and are.

So, it could be said: the only difference between insanity and honesty, is embracing what you see and what you are. If you accept what you C, lunacy. If you accept what you really r, lunary.
