"How can we share this"
I run into this problem all the time as well. Especially if the concepts are a bit complex... I'm not very good with explaining these things verbally, sans reference, so people usually just stare like so:
It's so frustrating. But maybe this is the shifting... it's like this story FastT linked to (I'll create a synapse), some of us will just take longer to come along.

I am trying to answer that question in my work now! I'm going to make a post soon that relates to stuff I've been doing with "mystical language" and Kafka, insofar as he employs apophatic devices.
Olena, I've been so busy with finals. I have not forgotten about your question/s about Buddhism and stuff. I'll get to them soon enough.
Also, I'm happy this has been synapsed to that story, as language can be modeled as a seduction (I will put together a post on this too because I already have quite a bit of writing on it) with some really interesting results that provide insight into the nature of language itself, namely its constituent potential to fail.
I really wish my job was Space Collective. I generally learn much more from perusing this site, and contributing to it, than I do from doing my homework, although class often points me in fruitful directions. Here, there is always something that I can get genuinely excited about.
