Destruction to me would be something that once stood tall, then got broken down so much nothing is left and everythings gone.. that would be like physical and stuff.. Or if you took some DMT youre brain would be under deconstruction and built right up again lol

destruction is that which makes the structure inoperable

structure being that which holds the pieces together

When I think of destruction I think of Samuel L. Jackson saying, "I'm a mushroom cloud laying motherfucker, motherfucker!"

I also think of tornadoes and the wreckage and ruin they leave in their wake.

i think destruction is maybe a simily of new life maybe. If you look at a forest fire for eg. the whole forest gets burned down but new, fresh plants emerge. And hurricanes and natural disasters wich hit japan , look whats hapening its a new start..


Bless the people from japan and USA that were involved in these

I give ya three words, try to understand the picture (i could tell the whole thing right away but making puzzles and human beings solving them seems to make em actually get THE point more accurate or even throw in a few good ideas/words themselves):

By diving deep into destruction you realize what destruction prevents.

Opportunity. Universal. Meaning.

I think destruction is the loss of something beautiful.... even though destruction has a how would ya say " an aesthetic art to it in itself" .. I see destruction also as change...  Can't see it as one thing since I do tend to have 2 sides to most things. I will stick to it's art and change... The art part of it being the application of it rather than the end result.  I also do see destruction as power....

I don't believe I understand your reasoning.  First, did you mean to use the word universal?  It doesn't make sense to say "destruction prevents universal."  Even if you did intend on that word, destruction is part of nature so it is universal in that sense.

Say we are talking about cancer, how would destroying cancer prevent opportunity or meaning?  How would destroying illiteracy, poverty, or halitosis prevent opportunity or meaning?

Would liquid's idea make more sense if we assume they're talking about sort of a "post-modernist deconstruction"? I.e. there is no universal meaning, just differing perceptions which our own destructions create.

I think freedom has a good definition of what destruction is, but it's a little too scientific or vague for my liking. Bigrichshrooms post about change is spot on. Human destruction is similar to decomposition in nature in many ways I think. The destruction itself is also creation in this sense, in that when the old is destroyed, something new is created. Sorry, stoned ramblings!

You asked what it meant to us. You didn't tell us this was some fucking riddle that we would later need to try and figure out based on three words.

I think their point could be made by those three words, in the fact that there can be many readings of what the true meaning is, so there can't be a true universal meaning. If they are using destruction in this way.
