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

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an encyclopaedia is always out of date.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.

naturally looking area of land created in the ice age or by farmers
or the Forest and Nature Agency. Horizontally what lies between
urban constructions (although often including some of these). Vertically

to communicate with someone it is easier to speak the same language.

machines include one or more of the following modes: On, off, bypass,
stand-by and remote. Some kind of performance adjustment is often
possible, f. ex. speed, rate, volume, etc. Some people are afraid
that the machines are taking over, which is ridiculous. memory:
the ability to recall past things, embrace present things, and contemplate
future things by comparing them to past things. no man´s
land: piece of land in between defined countries or lands. 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
