Language operations as thought are
profoundly different, quite fundamentally
different, from language operations as
communication and as pure mechanisms
used in dealing with others; the more
completely one becomes self centered,
the more uterly he becomes cut off from
integrations with other more or less real
people, and the more uterly novel,
perfectly magical, and wholly individual
become the symbols which he uses as
if they were language.
