Lost in space

What we need for human society is precisely what we have – a neutral something, neither you nor I, which we can both manipulate so as to make signs to each other.

I can talk to you because we can both set up sound waves in the common air between us. Matter, which keeps souls apart, also brings them together.

It enables each of us to have an outside as well as an inside, so what are acts of will and thought for you are noises and glances for me; you are enabled not only to be, but to appear:

And hence I have the pleasure of making your acquaintance.

CS Lewis
