I agree to this that to a certain extent we must have standardisation and individual ontology must be universal but it can lead to individuals loosing their differences and as Wollman said its impossible to express the thoughtes unless we share the common language.


Obviously both options are essential.  It is important that
individuals be able to express their own concepts -- but it can also
be frustrating (as I have found) to have no other choice.  The "one
individual ontology for everyone" is equivalent to "one individual
language for everyone", with the same results: it's impossible to
communicate your ideas unless you can express them in a way which
other people can understand.  There are concepts we share in common;
if we don't share (at least a limited set of) names for them, we may
have no way of discovering that commonality.
