    I like the interplay of ups and downs in the flow of words. The occasional capital letter in an English sentence, by contrast, looks rather odd. There, the all-minuscule style seems preferable.

    Sure, attempts to formulate it generally fail, but do you believe it exists, regardless of whether one can formulate it or not?

    It catches your attention, doesn't it

    Having nouns capitalized also increases your reading speed, if only by a bit.

    Hmmm....yeah, that's an interesting take on it.

    I think mine gets more to the point. But kudos to you for the flowery prose.

    Is it because the words you are reading are more organized? What would Happen if we Capitalized action verbs instead of nouns? It could Be cool. I Wonder if anyone Does this?

    It makes seeing the important parts of a sentence - nouns and verbs - easier. Capitalizing verbs as well, though, may not be a good idea.

    I meant instead of, so you could focus on the action instead of the subject.

    I think nouns are more important.

    By truth, you're implying that there's some overreaching directive and order to the universe, meaning and purpose. Yup, I do, for whatever that means. But on the flip side, I don't believe that the belief in the Truth is important in that framework.
