silence is golden.

a period for self reflection and thus wisdom.

and sadly the enemy of modern culture, where empty noise rules.

noise for its own sake ;-/.
Well said. I want to add with this a thought when out in nature, or with someone in a moment of silence and without the pressure of speaking just to break silence, for all those moments in comfort when there is only thoughts and silence:

"there is eloquence, even in silence".

Silence has no meaning. It is merely the absence of sound. It carries with it no message. It has nothing that can be deciphered or understood. Silence is to speech as words are to writing. Without words, this post is pointless.

silence allows for self reflection, and eventually may lead to self (more self - its a life longer activity that even the most self wise die before complete) knowledge.

noise disallows either of the above.

simple life of aeseticism fits into this too. one that strives for money/items are in a way strirving for more noise.

monks went to the desert and took vouws of silence for this reason - remove noise of this life to allow for reflection/self reflection.
