archive: piled or stacked paper or other media containing information, ordered by letters or numbers or not ordered. communication: exchange of utterances among persons, animals, or electronic devices. Common when someone wants to achieve something or make his point or presence clear. Widely in use. Example: Welcome back Thomas Bagge. If you are not Thomas Bagge please click here. Danish: 1) being a person from Denmark, 2) language spoken in Denmark, 3) sickly sweet person or thing. Danish design: doing the same as everyone else on a medium high level. double Dutch: 1) nonsense, 2) two persons on one bike, 3) a foreigner in The Netherlands working on total assimilation. encyclopaedia: (Greek: enkyklios + paideia: ring of education). The collection of all available theoretical and practical knowledge in general or within a certain topic at a certain time. The information in an encyclopaedia is always out of date. explanation: adding meaning to something (but not necessarily understanding it). index: list of names, topics, titles etc. in books, archives, or libraries making the search for information easier. The value of traditional indexes is rapidly decreasing since the introduction of electronic game consoles and SMS messaging on cellular phones where only the thumb is being used. This has weakened the functioning of the index finger and made the search for information on index cards or lists very slow and clumsy. For the same reason the design of door bells is being changed.

Horizontally what lies between urban constructions (although often including some of these).

To be able to communicate with someone it is easier to speak the same language. There are several thousand languages to choose from.

A no man´s land is not defined by its borders, but by the borders of the surrounding areas. Therefore it is not marked on maps, since someone then would be able to claim it. No man´s lands are often confused with border areas. In war: the place where people are fighting, but not what they are fighting about. A no man´s land is characterized by its vacuum-like emptiness, constant temperature and the distant sound of birds. philosophy: thinking twice about everything. photograph: picture formed by placing light sensitive material on a place where it is thought to be needed. picture: framed reality. silence: extremely slow movement. thing: could be anything. translation: a een en thing ding ting is is er a een en thing ding ting but maar men also ook ogsaa another een andere en anden thing ding ting. understanding: adding meaning to something (but not necessarily being able to explain it). window: image of what is on the other side.
