Now besides the matrix i'm a fan of Waking Life (u guys should go out and buy it it'll only cost u about 6 bucks) so there's this blonde chick and i totally agree with what she says here it is-
"Creation seems to come out of imperfection. It seems to come out of a striving and a frustration, and this is where I think language came from. It came from our desire to transcend our isolation and have some sort of connection with one another. And it had to be easy, when it was just simple survival, like you know...water, we came up with a sound for that, or sabre-toothed tiger right behind you!, we came up with a sound for that. But, when it gets really interesting, I think, is when we use that same system of symbols to communicate all the abstract and intangible things that we're experiencing. What is frustration? or what is anger? or love? When I say "love," the sound comes out of my mouth and hits the other person's ear, travels through this Byzantine conduit in their brain, through their memories of love, or lack of love, and they register what I'm saying, and they say "Yes, I understand," but how do I know they understand? Words are inert; They're just symbols; They're dead. You know? And, so much of our experience is intangible. So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed; It's unspeakable. Yet, when we communicate with one another, and we feel that we have connected, and we think that we are understood, I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion, and that feeling might be transient, but I think it's what we live for."
can i have anyones 2 cents (by the way wats that mean)

As was said in the movies, the word is used to describe the feeling. What feelings it inspires are entirely relative.

here's an example. walk up to any person on the road and say "You're a fucking asshole", and they'll probably get very, very, VERY angry. now walk up to me on the street and say, "You're a fucking asshole", and i'll probably make a bad taste joke, like, "My place or yours?" or "Hey, I've got aids, ya want some?" see, it would incite anger in most, but in me, it would more than likely inspire interest. a word is just a word, how it's intereprited by the person who hears it AND by the person who says it is completely different.

if I say the word Ninja, I think of a good friend of mine, while if you say it (or hear me say it) you'll probably think of something different. the fact is, it's difficult to use just a few words to describe a feeling.

make sens?

Elementary my dear Watson, not only are the feelings subjective, but the associations as well, thats what happens with the individual development that occurs.
