"But the language of a computer model for the brain was wholly inadequate for recording any subtle or deep experience. So back to poetry, metaphor and myth: the language I needed. Just as music could not be defined in terms of sound waves and their auditory reception (complexities of hearing) so none of our essential ideas - concerning truth, beauty and spiritual experience - could be defined in terms of psychiatric fundamentals... We needed several and different languages to 'cover' reality (one stuff, many perspectives), languages that overlap though they may seem to be polar opposites."
