The sound of one hand clapping is the sound of one hand closing quickly.
The sound of one hand clapping is supposed to be a question with no answer. It is a clasic Zen koan given to students to aid in enlightenment by leading the mind into a cul-de-sac with no way out but enlightenment. How enlightened could the person who came up with this koan be, considering it has such an obvious and simple answer?

Pareidolia is the phenomena of seeing faces/figures/forms in patterns; as opposed to where one normally sees faces/figures/forms (on animals including people/landscapes etc.)
Pareidolia is seeing what appears to the individual to be a representation of a face, figure, or form in the clouds, wood grain, marble, smoke, shadows, or any non-homogeneous area. It can also be an auditory phenomenon as in hearing white noise or a record played backward that sounds to the individual like words or a melody that isn't actually there.

To communicate is to express oneself to another, so that the recipient agrees, ACTS on the agreement and improves the universe. It doesn't mean to talk, or to say something and the hearer says yes or no. She/He/It must respond positively and do something to get us out of the cancerous cycle we are in. It is interesting to note that this is the first entry in the Urban Dictionary for this word. If there were any communication, the world would not be as it is. Anyone who has anything to communicate is executed, imprisoned, institutionalized, or marginalized. This is the system that keeps those in power to stay in power.
If you feel you have something to communicate please add to the definition; maybe we can escape the cave of plato, and the world can change.

Solipsism is the fact (as much as any other so called fact), that we create our dreams not only at night when we sleep, but also in the day. As well as before we are "born," and after we so call "die." The dreams in the day only appear more "rational." It is not that "we are the only thing that exists," but that our consciousness is all that exists. Our consciousness is just our individual reflection of the consciousness of the entire universe, (what is commonly called "God." ) It takes time to perceive everything (time being an illusion), except for our consciousness which is instantaneous. This means that what we perceive is also us. Governments, as well as organized religions, military, industrial, and educational systems conspire, and know this fact, but put out the Descartian, dualistic view that there is an external foreign "enemy". The latter view is put out for their advantage which everyone must follow or be marginalized, imprisoned, or eliminated. This view works to the disadvantage of everyone not following the Church, State, Military, Industrial, Educational Crime-Pseudo crime fighting system.
If this view of solipsism were accepted by the masses, as opposed to the "current commonly accepted dualistic view," we would work together for all of US. instead of being divided and conquered as we are now, by the age old classical military technique. We would work 6 hours per year for a middle- class existence as described by Buckminster Fuller, inventer of the geodesic dome.

The standard dictionary is a great way to get everyone to think and act the same way. It defines terms the way the writers like Webster want people to accept the words. Once the words are locked in as meaningful, the next step is the encyclopedia. This is all condoned by the Church, State, Military, Industrial, Education, Crime, Pseudo-Crime fighting masses to control everyone for the writer's own advantage and stop change. If anyone has a different definition of a word, one of the above mentioned group members says, "that is not the meaning of the word." So we all end up thinking and acting the same way, killing each other and burning up the world. Words are much more tricky than people think. Most people think "Peace" is the opposit of "War," because that is what the "dictionary," says; but nothing has lead to "War," more than "Peace." Either way one looses, when one follows the standard dictionary, encyclopedia, church. state, military, industrial, crime, pseudo crime fighting worded way. In the beginning was not "The Word," it was, "What was." Words are hints to get us where we need to go. If one accepts them totally as given by the standard dictionary, one is a word fundamentalist, which leads to other fundamentalist wars such as we now have.
"Eddie looked it up in the dictionary, that prooves he's right." Despite the fact that none of these words have any absolute meaning.
