“In the sacred Quechua language, the word for language is ‘thread.’ For a child in the Chilean Andes who is traditionally given a spider at birth, the spider’s thread must seem to be a living part of one’s own self, spooled out or withdrawn as the language in which the invisible world becomes visible, and vice versa, at a moment before the definition of self and other has been formed.” — Kythe Heller, Forecast Journal Issue 9
