"Well, you're just saying that!"

Any thing said, this is the way of the selective pressures begat speaking in words, is a build up of a collection of internal organic pressures which are expressed. They are expressed because they are there, otherwise they cannot be expressed. One cannot just say anything, every word has an unavoidable correlation to internal pressures (themselves reactive of external pressures, bien sûr), this is why it has any evolutionary permanence: it has actual weight in organic self- and inter-valuing.

Not because a butterfly can imitate the eyes of an owl does one say that the semblance of an owl's eyes does not carry its own values. The butterfly doesn't lie, it fetishizes a truth, it hits a truth with a baseball bat so hard as to shift it enough to fall into a different set of evolutionary pressures.

It's a nice thought, that liars are much more honest than they believe! And a true one, at that.
