“Defeated by an invasion of empty words… Initially, the body tries to resist, but eventually gives in even though it sees that many others merely pretend to understand and agree. Dialectic projects and various slogans invade the language and hinder the mind and its work… At this point, the body must find the strength and The third act recounts the attempt to regain the power of words, as if to return to the fundamental teachings of the Egyptian spiritual master Ptahhopte, which stated “In order to become strong, we must first become an artist of the word; because the strength of man is in words, and words are stronger than any weapon”… Lost For Words study III does not contradict the “spirit” and the suggestion of its first two acts, but tries to reconnect to the word to a pure and direct meaning… A language not confused with another meaning.”
