The universal language is hand signs, a photo can record one word, and a video is sentence. I use my hands, eyes, face and body to communicate.

“The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.”

- Bill Gates
Business @ the Speed of Thought

I made my first webpage about 12-14 years ago. I have been wading through gobbledygook ever since try to find the proper words to explain the world.

“To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given”

- Jesus Christ
The Christian Bible

I read the New Testament of the Christian Bible and still am in wonder of the profound use of parables.

I am somewhat giddy today. I agree with Bill Gates that the internet will become the town square of the world. I agree with Jesus, I do not want all people to understand what I say. Traveling around the planet has taught me a new language, I use my hands, eyes, face and body to communicate, it is amazing how well the world understands me when I close my mouth.

I really do not like the word giddy, however, I just cannot find a more accurate macho word to use, that explains my mood today. I have been working on my dream Hotel site with Andrew, Boy Genius from India now for a few years called HoboHideOut.com. Yesterday, I submitted a Hotel to my own site, I added the Auberge Mandela in Kpalime, Togo to the site and had fun putting up photos of the Hotel. I also became aware, the photos will tell more than the captions.

Which come first the Chicken or the Egg?
Which come first on an Internet page, the Words of the Photos?

An internet page with no words is invisible to the search engines, however the Chicken does need the Egg, and the Words need the Photos, however only the photo can speak 7000 languages.



There are 7000 plus languages on the planet, in the Global Village, and maybe only the Coca Cola symbol an abstract drawing to a Chinese person is understood by most, after that ambiguity rules the planet.



This Coca Cola Video is a one sentence of the Universal language. If you are not seeing a small TV screen, click on this link.

This disambiguation of language is a photo, and to explain clearly I need an un-edited video. I can see clearly now, I understand.
