Physical Manifestation

Language and art form a duality with both being 'immediate constructions'[1] used to communicate the abstract unknown of one entity's interior to another.

Thoughts, Dreams, Feelings 

Langauge, Art, Emotions


"Speech (hence, language) is a vehicle, an instrument, the mediation of something else (soul, thought, passion); it absorbs the entirety of the mental...not expression but immediate construction." [3]

" becoming aware of the thought nascent within us...when we speak to the other, thus sweeping him into truth, as if himself, by himself, were discovering it......the priciple of the exteriority of language and of thought [and feelings]: one has a 'picture' in the mind and one seeks to 'render' it." [4]
