“When I say ‘love’, the sound comes out of my mouth and it hits the other person’s ear, travels through this byzantine conduit in their brain, you know, through their memories of love, or lack of love, and they register what I’m saying and they say ‘Yes, I understand’… but how do I know they understand because words are inert. They’re just symbols. They’re dead. You know, and so much of our experience is intangible. So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed, it’s unspeakable. And yet, when we communicate with one another, and we feel we have connected and we think that we’re understood, I think that we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion, and that feeling might be transient, but I think that’s what we live for”.
