You are Pro so you are arguing that Context is in fact, Everything. I am Con so I will argue that Context is not everything.




this is the definition for the word, everything.  

1.
every thing: particular of an aggregate or total; all.




There are three definitions for the word context.

1.
the parts of a written or spoken statement that precede or follow a specific word or passage, usually influencing its meaning or effect: You have misinterpreted my remark because you took it out of context.

Well this form of the word only includes written or spoken statements which does not includes any thoughts, animals, actions, or even the fleshy fibrous body of the pileus in mushrooms!

2.
the set of circumstances or facts that surround a particular event, situation, etc.


This definition of the word only one set of things, which means that any given time, all other sets of things would not be included. Possibly even the fleshy fibrous body of the pileus in mushrooms!

3.
Mycology . the fleshy fibrous body of the pileus in mushrooms.


Ah finely, the only definition that guarantees that the fleshy fibrous body of the pileus in mushrooms is involved. But sadly it is only specific to that one thing so it also does not fit the definition of everything.
