Fingernails/toenails or claws….?
Overall, could the concept of nails create some amount of confusion in the mental processes and self perception of people?
The concept of nails as different from claws seems to be partially on the basis of shape, and of the lifeform type from which they are emerging. Yet are they similar enough to claws that one could get the sense that they are still claws?
In writing this me recollects that this exists also relative to hands/feet or paws, hair, fur, or feathers, and even gender, as well as, where and how a so termed individual lifeform specifically exists. Many times it feels like puzzles in the form of language usage waiting to be solved or at the very least receive some postulation as to the essence of what is actually occurring on behalf of what are stagnant though not necessary deleterious presences of terminology obfuscating potential perceptual, emotional, experiential (and other) types of flows.
When feeling the sense of claws growing from the fingers and toes, that is for me a vital and challenging, inquisitive sensation. The sense of fingernails and toenails is very mundane, in that, in perception, what can be conceived of as an actual use of or vitality relative to fingernails and toenails absent some contemporary and artificial experiences? The sense of claws relates to a vast host of familiar and visceral lifeforms who do in deed experience their claws in many meaningful, memorable ways. Ok hold on:
``The sense of claws relates to a vast host of familiar and visceral lifeforms who do in deed experience their claws in many meaningful, memorable ways.``
Yes that seemed to be one of those! Hopefully they will be used more aptly in future writings but for now this is rather fun. Again what seems to be very true is, do concepts such as fingernails, toenails, hair, desensitize the actual lifeforms from feeling the depth and vitality of these actual features?
As with the first writing, this subject will have to be revisited a few times!
