Well, through writing, correct? But even writing is limited by the evolution of language over time. Even if we preserve it perfectly, we can't preserve our ability to understand something if we don't have the context.

Is it possible to preserve thought through the generations? Should we trying harder to preserve our language, and teach precisely what each word means, with only 1 definition?
Wisdom is found where the wise seek it.
