How to talk to a tree. And be sure they’re listening.
What does it mean to speak? To have a dialogue? To resonate with another human being. Or a plant. Or a brick. Is there anything like a dialogue possible with an entity that is not conventionally and conveniently structured in a rational way? And how would I interpret such a ‘thing’? In this text I will try to open up the common conception of dialogue. Of our understanding of thinking together. Which means I will move through murky waters, and try to filter out the shiny bits. The little pieces that still reflect our shared understanding of the understandable, of what we can grasp of our experiences together. All the rest is silence.
