I suppose when you boil it down, any kind of communication, whether spoken, written or gestured, is basically transferring thoughts and ideas from one person's brain to another. Just imagine if there were some form of transplanted device which did just that. No need for spelling, punctuation or even vocabulary; the thought would pass immediately to the recipient. How simple that would be.

But I can see a danger. There would have to be a guard in place, or the lady next door would instantly receive my opinion that her new curtains are hideous and my husband would be very hurt to know I wasn't too impressed with his new red stripy top, which makes him look like a page from a 'Where's Wally?' book.
