Teaching a Stone to Talk

In the deeps are the violence and terror of which psychology has warned us. But if you ride these monsters deeper down, if you drop with them farther over the world’s rim, you find what our sciences cannot locate or name: the substrata, the ocean, the unified field, our complex and inexplicable caring for each other and our lives together here. This is given, it is not learned.
