Is free-will an illusion?

@cicerone imposter,
Yes, language is important.
Important only as a utility, not as a literal existence.

Communication is important, but not as a literal living experience.

All dysfunction in miscommunication is rooted in this single error.

The Listener becomes offended because he believes that what he experienced is what the speaker intended.

In communication, not even emotions are conveyed.

It's more like a filter than anything else,
Narrowing down the options.

I love you,
Means that I'm not silent and passive, but am intending to convey something.
It also eliminates all contradicting possibilities as options,

And finally, the Listener creates a positive emotion, appreciating being loved
as unique as how his face looks,
Based on a self generated​ statement
Reflecting the matching words, he perceived.

Yes, language is important to existence. Words are responsible for all actions of humans.

@think rethink,
Emotions are what motivates us to do things. They also tell us a lot of important insight about how we interact with others, so they are a bonus, a strength. The idea that passions are bad and only reason is good - that is an old, tired and simplistic idea. Embrace your emotions as a form of wisdom, and you will be better of for it.

@cicerone imposter,
I breath without verbal commands and so do you (at least as an infant)
Words aren't involved in any of the actions of an infant before it learns language and emotions.

Once the world of genuine existence is obscured,
Words initiate and control all actions.
