To use words to sense reality is like going with a lamp to search for darkness
Falconar, T.quoting Korzybski,

“The objective level is not words, and cannot be reached by words alone. We must point our finger and be silent, or we will never reach this level.”
― Alfred Korzybski,

― Alfred Korzybski
