“How odd I can have all this inside me and to you it’s just words.”
— David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King 

“I think it’s so fascinating how human nature (objectively depending on what culture we’re speaking of) has names for everything we have. this is a desk. this is my femur. my tibia. my foramen magnum. this is a mug. we can’t see anything without naming it or else we ignore it because it is too much just to see the essence of something without categorizing it into something that we can just barely understand”
