“Be cautious of the quiet for the lack of words is a chasm not easily crossed requiring specialized tools to scale.”
Communication is complex and not easily performed and complex. The act of communication between anyone requires an agility, patience and listening. The words we speak are not universal but subjective and based in personal and cultural context. Simplicity would be to speak in the literal but this would require the mastery of words elevated by understanding social cues. The ability to communicate would change the world and increase our capacity for understanding as a pie to ice cream producing a unique slice of empathy with a dollop of tolerance.
