Silence is what ensues when there is no language. It allows experiencing that, which cannot be put into words. When we walk, we allow ourselves to experience.

And then when we write and enter the word-ful, we do so not as someone who has inhabited the word-ful alone but someone who has inhabited both word-ful and wordless.

Gros, F. (2014). A Philosophy of Walking. Verso.

silence is the dissipation of our language.

in that silence you hear better, because you are finally hearing what has no vocation to be retranslated, recoded, reformatted.
