There are no shared perceptions or sensations. Each self’s private sensations can only be understood when rendered as dialog. Things cannot exist un-uttered in the mind, independent of their names. Acutely private experiences brought into the world at large create dialog and also discord. Language both illuminates and baffles the intellect; while attempting to connect similar sensations through relatable experiences it can only do so on the common ground of fixed symbols which contort and confuse the idiosyncratic nature of the private perception. One thing can be related to any other in the realm outside private experience. The larger the realm of connections becomes, with more variables in the world, the more obscured the relationship between name and thing.
