A Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion of writing a computer virus that destroys and replaces files on a victim PC with manga images of squid, octopuses and sea urchins. Masato Nakatsuji, 27, of Izumisano, Osaka Prefecture, was quoted as telling police: "I wanted to see how much my computer programming skills had improved since the last time I was arrested."

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332

Perhaps the complexity of the experience\truth\reality cannot be readily or infinitely reduced to a series of clearer and clearer terminology, but that at a certain arbitrary point, one has to state that certain things are merely unconjecturable.

If we had a machine which could transmit the electrical activity from one brain to another, perhaps this might address the issue because it would be clear that:

Either there is a differing perception (and the origin of your opponent's perception is not something you understand)

Or

You have the same perception but are using different terms because of the ambiguity of language, the non-clarity of language.
The best things in life aren't things.

It's a good point: whether the same or different (and, perhaps to remind us, whether both the same and different or neither the same nor different), perception is nevertheless understandable as a human function. That's all the Dhamma needs to assert in order to be effective.
