the worthless word for the day is: sonder

[perhaps related to F. sonder, to probe?]

the realization that each random passerby is living a life
as vivid and complex as your own--populated with their
own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited
craziness--an epic story that continues invisibly around
you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with
elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that
you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear
only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background,
as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted
window at dusk

I think not.
Words describe but also delimit information about the world around us.
For example your question and my answer are obfusicated
because of our use of words here.
