For most of a year, I’ve been saying that the words are the “law of the law”. That is, I’ve realized that a intent of a “law” like “Thou shalt not kill” is determined by the meanings and definitions of the words and grammar that comprise the laws.
Broadly speaking, definitions are the “law of the law”. I begin to see that my observation that “words are the law of the law” was far more important and true than I’d supposed. I thought I’d created an interesting metaphor. I begin to see that the Good LORD may have guided me to stumble onto a profound and fundamental insight into how and where “this state” functions.
