Friend: Pronunciation Key

A person who thinks, speaks and acts correctly at all times and all places.

A non-existent person.

A person who will die for you.

I have met people who say they will die for me but I wouldn't die for them and I told them so. What is the practical value of having someone to die for you that you are not willing to die for?

I suspect none. The above definition is not provable until the person actually dies for you after they have stated they will die for you so you wouldn't know if they are truly your friend or not. The "proof is in the puddin". And if you aren't willing to die for them then you aren't truly their friend according to the above definition.

If someone will die for me that does not make them my friend...but it may make me their friend. There is no balance in the equation.

What is the practical value of me being someone else's friend but they are not mine? Isn't justice balance between people?

I suspect there is none. Yes, justice is balance between people. I think I should revise the definition.

If this is a non-existent person should the word FRIEND have a different definition?

Friend: A person who does not willfully mistreat you and who "has the will plus the ability, to find truth, and to use truth in a manner that produces justice and correctness, at all times and in all places" in all the nine areas of human activity.

(FRIENDS!! How many of us have them?"

What is the difference between this(which every person should do toward every other person that breaths) and a friend? I do not understand the definition.

why define something that does not exist as opposed to defining something that does?

Why have a word that defines nothing? This does not make logical sense.This leads me to believe this word means something. WINSTON WOLF,Do you know what "FRIEND" means? If you do,could you explain what this means? I am confused.

I'm not sure at present. But there could be something useful to it. Then again, I could be incorrect.

The definition of a friend may be something that every person must determine for themselves then act accordingly.

I suspect that sometimes we just go too far, other times, not far enough. We may be pushing when we should be shoving!

A word that is defined individually will most liklely lead to confusion.

Should one act on a word that may not be understood by the person receiving the action?

I suspect because you need words to define a concept.

You then follow the logic to make the concept a reality.

For example, I suspect some people used the concept "airship" to produce the first airplane.

They may have gotten the concept of "airship" from looking at a "watership".

But at its root I suspect all concepts are rooted in problem solving; i.e. the law of the universe,

compensation.

It is. And you're right,there is no practical value.

What balance would a person like you need for you to die for them and how could that be defined if "friend" doesn't do it?
