This may or may not surprise you, but the encumbrances of language forbid us to entertain the vanity of knowing truth objectively.

I agree, but using language we can understand, if not know.

All this is that.

I think you're on to something. Without language, of course, even basic communication from one to another is impossible. But the only thing standing in the way of pure understanding is language.

Ouch.
