Because the ability to read written things

uses that part of the brain which evolved
to enable us to read each others' body-talk and faces,
we who have learned to read letters, pictograms and characters
have difficulty in reading other creatures of our kind
and, just as tragically, others not of our kind, like dogs.
Thus civilisation corrupts the mind
already hacked to bits by language.
