I'm pretty sure that isn't how language works.
Think again my friend. Concepts are the only important things, language is secondary. A baby talks before he reads. Words and symbols can help but can also blind.

When you see what a word means the word disappears. There are many words I could use to explain Ki, to explain oneness, to try to convey a concept and an understanding and indeed a reality. Thus we see the beauty of language along with it's limitations.

Maybe the language of the kotodama is the clearest
