I dreamed that human language was a cipher, and the precise meaning of words was encoded in a hideously complex way, but could always be decoded and interpreted unambiguously by those with the key. Not very subtle, brain.

@metapianycist I had to look it up. The Tamarian language sounds like an extreme version of the "shared symbolic web" described in A Field Guide to Earthlings. :)

@alva that's on my list of things to read. I've had the ebook for a while but haven't gotten around to it
