Who we are is constituted in language. An entire world is created when we speak about things or, said more rigorously, when we speak things.

Language and the words we choose creates the world we speak. I speak, therefore I am (as René Descartes may have said).
When the world we create fits the words we speak in a world to word  fit, we're source. We're at cause in a Big world. When the words we speak fit the world in which we already live in a word to world  fit, we're machines. We're reacting in a small world.
