How does the unseen communicate in the seen world?
By way of the minute muscular movements
which are utilised in speech and gesture…
That is, very badly.
But why so very badly?
Because, the unseen is largely unaware of this process;
only the most basic observations
are capable of communication
without the risk of misinterpretation;
and the unseen is also vague as to the precise nature
of its desire to communicate anything at all.
Ultimately, that which is most important,
to the unseen, is utterly incommunicable.
More generally, the seen world interprets
signals from the unseen in its own way,
and if the unseen world were actually seen in itself
even more divergences would, inevitably, arise.
We see, and are seen, but through a glass darkly
as the familiar phrase has it…
