Dialog comes from the Greek word dialogos, a term to describe the philosophical discussions that occurred between Socrates and Plato. These philosophers considered meaningful dialog to be an ideal or something not easily attainable, but they understood that dialog requires ideas to be communicated in a format clearly understood by others. It is often said that dialogue is the “glue” or “cement” that holds people and societies together. Historically, meaningful dialog occurred whenever people used a common language to communicate their thoughts and ideas.
The word one describes itself as the synergy that is present within all things, it also means “many in body, one in mind.” One represents the unity required to deploy value and harmony for each respective person and community in our society.
