The way I see it is this. By appearing to explain without actually explaining, the WTS has destroyed "meaning."
A "word" is a signal or signifyer. The WTS for all those many years, use the signifyer as a COUNTDOWN CLOCK.
The ticking clock of a soon-to-expire generation created an easy-to-understand URGENCY.
The Watch Tower rests firmly on the concept of SHORTNESS of TIME.
In context, Jehovah's Witnesses have been running a "GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE" as a scam.
Once the feasibility of "generation" bled out into fantasy, an emergency occurred. Old-timers and Long-timers
were hanging on to the Million Now Living Will Never Die scam as a lifeline to believability.
Here is a simple question: WHY USE THE WORD GENERATION AT ALL? Aren't there other ways which better express the "information?"
The WTS is "clouding the issue" with techno-babble.
Rule of thumb: "A word which can mean anything actually means nothing." Example: GENERATION
