If one man says ‘whore’ and another hears ‘hoar’, of what use is it? Speech, no matter how eloquent, is not communication.
If one man draws a star and another sees a cross, of what use is it? Pictures, even if they contain color, even if they move, are not communication.
If a man caresses a woman and the woman feels the blade of a knife, of what use is it? Touch, no matter how deeply felt is not communication.
For communication to happen the construct in one mind must be duplicated by another mind. — -Donald Kingsbury, Courtship Rite

One of the books, while I am hesitant to say “changed my life”, certainly had a lot of influence on it. (Which admittedly includes a more favorable opinion on the concept of cannibalism. ) I see you have a similar idea of communication. Have you read Courtship Rite?
