To read someone else’s mind, to hear, out of the silence, a comprehensible flow of thoughts as if one was tuning into a radio station, or to read, real-time, sentences only just forming as if to focus on a page of a book, is an attractive fantasy, all the more so because it seems, for some reason, achievable. But let’s leave others aside: How much are we able to follow what passes through our own mind? If they do, indeed, take shape as audible, or legible sentences, can we pull back to a point from which we can hear or read them, as everything flows past so rapidly? It is by such an experiment that the frame within which perception is interpreted can be marked and changed.
