Languaging becomes part of our medium and so anything we say is not trivial since it becomes part of the domain in which our co-onto genes structural drift takes place. That is, our co-drifts are contingent on our languaging. Languaging interactions are as powerful as a physical interaction example pushing someone hard. If we say "How beautiful you look" - this has certain consequences in terms of a "particular configuration of structural perturbations." This statement is like a caress. Equally, if we say "you look terrible" this is another particular configuration of structural perturbation. Such an interaction Maturana calls "like hammering in the head," i.e., it is painful.
