Its possible (although far from certain that the British/ Latin term  Scottas (sea raider), Greek  Skotia (dark/shadowy ones) and the old Irish scáth (scath here may have developed from an earlier scotos)  allow for a common sense to develop and the term to become widely adopted yet still allow for differences to be maintained.

Words reinforce and develop a shared sense post 400 a.d following the adoption of the term in Romano British culture.

Range extents in Ireland and will come to refer to  someone who is Irish but not born in Ireland.

Near/ Beside (Ideology/ Definition/ Language

Seems to be a clear relationship between ideology and what the term Mexican means in this situation.

Can language simple be described as another word for ideology?

I am interested in an idea that does not exist in this situation. Neo- platonic sense that all things stem from the one.

Other here would emanate as a quality or sensation of the self, we see ourselves as if in a mirror, striped of humanity, a potential that is always possible, anxiously uncertian and difficult to determine in the moment.

Philosophy has a very rigid sense of classification, neo- platonic infers a particular sense of time and origin.

In this situation the idea does not exist, it is simply a potential accident, which may occur, given time and distance from the event.

Things Are As They Seem

“Mine eyes are stauls and my hands lime twigs”

Requires no further thought as it is moving and on its feet.

Memory is in the tension and relaxation of the muscles.

Without such control engaging in slight of hand and such deceit is not possible.

Emotionless, demonstration of complete control, an act of self- deception.

What you get, a brazen criminal, devoid of feeling.

Its as far from the truth as you can get. Nothing is as it seems, the intent is for the audience to believe the lie.

To make it feel what is hidden from view the audience has to be given every opportunity to deceive itself.
