Fundamental Funhouse

Language is one of humanity’s supreme inventions. With words we can describe our experiences, our memories, and our thoughts to others. On this level language works with functional elegance. While it’s true that not all experience can be put into words, or images for that matter, we accept this minor limitation for the greater aspect that language bestows upon its users.

But, what happens when we run into transcendental experiences that defy words and exist beyond thinking? Of course, I am referring to art from the soul in this context.
