Neuro-Semantics is about meaning and meaningfulness (semantics) and how the meanings we create not only at the level of representation as we make movies in our minds, but at all of the higher levels of frames about those movies. The movies and meanings that we set not only create our frames of mind, but the emotions, skills, states, and abilities in our bodies (neurology).

NLP is a communication model that describes how language (linguistics) affects our body and physiology (neurology). Words and symbols work indirectly, not directly. Words and symbols work in our mind like a map about a territory (“The map is not the territory”) just as our inner mental movies of sights, sounds, sensations, smells, etc. is not the external experience.
