Finding the Sacred Alphabet II: The Language of Pleasure

Henry David Thoreau once wrote, "The language of friendship is not words, but meanings. It is an intelligence above language." At a time when we're seeing the abuse of language by autocrats and dictators, rendering words hollow and meaningless, how can we become children in front of language again?

How can we reinvent the written and spoken word through pleasure and play? And most importantly, how can we use the experience of the great reset, or what Italians refer to as "la grande intercertezza,"—the great uncertainty—to mine deeper into the language of meaning, and bridge the gap between our expression and our most deeply held sentiments, values, and passions?

Together with author Aditi Khorana and Mariana Lin, poet and former principal writer for Apple’s Siri, we explored the language of pleasure. we explored these questions through a discussion, and developed new tools of language to guide us into the future.
