To me, the experience of words meaning something vibrates with distinguishable properties. The properties of word meanings and standard physical vibrations are similar. You may agree that these are the same, but you may find differences.
|standard physical property||example in the experience of word meanings||images (Wikipedia)|
|propagation||a word travels through my mind|
|absorption||an idea elicits no other ideas|
|reflection||I think about a word I've spoken.|
|refraction||a word enters more dense material in my mind and changes direction|
|diffraction||of a barrage of words, one gets in and enlarges in my mind|
|dispersion||a word seems to have multiple meanings||
