Language has no real meaning.
Just because you were taught to say Bob when someone asked your name or tree when you saw such an apparent form, this does not give reality to either the noise you made or the event pointed at. It does not mean that a tree can float alone in space and bear fruit.
Having the words good and bad does not mean such things exist anywhere. Where does the nose become the cheek? Is there a line splitting the two or does the absence of a name for the area between mean that there is nothing there?
Too caught up in language, and failing to remember that the name is not the named, people can easily find themselves incarcerated in brain cells.
