Let's try and accept this suggestion coming to us from far away. The Original Language was not one, in fact, it was the complexity of all languages. Perhaps Adam did not receive this gift, it had simply been promised to him, and the original sin interrupted the slow process of learning it. But it was left as a legacy to his offspring, the task of conquering the full and harmonized lordship of the Tower of Babel.

Was die Welt in diesem Augenblick sucht, ist viel weniger ein Gleichgewicht als eine Sprache.

—Jean Giraudoux
