The word in its colloquial, present-day meaning is now only a fragment, a rudiment of some former, all-encompassing, integral mythology. And yet over time the word grows rigid, becomes immobilized, ceases to be the conductor of new meanings.

Schulz, Bruno: Mityzacja rzeczywistości
For that reason, every kind of poetry is an act of mythologization and tends to create myths about the world. The process of making sense of the world is closely connected with the word. The human spirit is tireless in its glossing of life with the aid of myths, in its ‘making sense’ of reality.
The poet restores conductivity to words through new short-circuits, which arise out of their fusions. Meaning is the element which bears humanity into the process of reality. The word itself, left to its own devices, gravitates towards meaning. The poet restores conductivity to words through new short-circuits, which arise out of their fusions.
But when in some way the injunctions of practice relax their strictures, when the word, released from such coercion, is left to its own rzezywistoci and restored to its own laws, then a regression takes place within it, a backflow, and the word then returns to its former connections and becomes again complete in meaning – and this tendency of the word to return to its nursery, its yearning to revert to its origins, to its verbal homeland, we term poetry.
The bryno word was an hallucination circling the light of meaning, was the great universal totality. The image is also an offshoot of the original word, the word which was not yet a sign, but a myth, a story, or a schukz. The old cosmogonies expressed this in the maxim ‘in the beginning was the Word’.
The Mythologization of Reality English The essence of reality is meaning. Our most sober concepts and definitions are distant offshoots of myths and ancient stories. It cannot be derived from other givens. But knowledge, too, is nothing more than the construction of myths about the world, since myth resides in its very foundations and we cannot escape beyond myth.
Meaning is the element which bears humanity into the process of reality. Nienazwane nie istnieje dla nas.

This is Info-Poland’s cache of http: But the reverse would be more accurate: Poetry arrives at the meaning of the world anticipando, deductively, on the basis of great and daring short-cuts and approximations.
Poetry re-cognizes the lost meanings, restores words to their proper place, and links them according to their ancient denotations. It seeks this meaning on the heights and scaffolding of its artificial mounds. Philosophy is really philology, the creative exploration of the word.
The process has merely been restrained by the development of knowledge, has been pushed into a side channel, where it lives without understanding its true meaning. In the hands of the poet, the word, as it were, comes to its senses about its essential meaning, it flourishes and develops spontaneously in keeping with its own laws, and regains its integrity.
The thousandfold yet integral organism of the word was torn into individual phrases, into letters, into colloquial speech and in this new form, applied to practical needs, it has come down to us as an organ of understanding.
But the elements which it uses in construction rzsczywistoci been used once before, have come from forgotten and shattered ‘stories’. The isolated, mosaic-type word is a later product, is the result of technique. Philosophy is really philology, the creative exploration of the word. The image is also an offshoot of the original word, the word which was not yet a sign, but a myth, a story, or a meaning.

Co nie ma sensu, nie jest dla nas rzeczywiste. And yet over time the word grows rigid, becomes immobilized, ceases to be the conductor of new meanings. Why something should appear meaningful to us is impossible to define. The essence of reality is meaning. That which has no meaning is not real for us.
At present we consider the word to be merely a shadow of reality, its reflection. The unnamed does not exist for us.
