Well, it shouldn't be just a word game... but the word means exacly what jeff said.. i know that understanding comes after having an experience... this is how one comes to understand something.. very good idea to look in the dictionary... i sometimes think that some people around just build a fantastic world with gods, light, and enlightenment and try to get inside of it.. why do you want ot escape from this world? what is wrong with it? i love it here!..

Greg and Judi -
Semantic games are understood by me
to be experiential. When "experience"
is used as an active verb, you are
correct in your erudition, and the
referenced sensation of experience
is necessarily temporary.
As a noun, Mirela and I wear the crown.
Here, experience includes direct
participation in the event, an
accumulated knowledge - ergo,
From the HyperDic (no comment. much restraint):
The word "experience" has 8 different senses:
As a Noun:
1. cognition: The accumulation of knowledge
or skill that results from direct participation
in events or activities.
2. cognition: The content of direct observation
or participation in an event.
3. event: An event as apprehended.
As a Verb:
1. perception: Go or live through.
2. cognition: Have firsthand knowledge of states,
situations, emotions, or sensations.
3. perception: Of mental or physical states or experiences.
4. emotion: Undergo
5. change: Undergo.
