"Is there in the brain anything untouched by culture? - 6 August 1975 - Can there be a total perception which completely heals the brain? - What benefit has culture? - Does speech come before thought? - Is it possible to say something without the operation of thought? - Is there in the brain anything untouched by culture? - Is attention a conscious process? - Is love the factor of profound change? - You explain all this, and you say that whatever the damaged brain - which is the result of thought and tradition and all the rest of it - whatever it does will produce further damage. So, because you point it out, I realise that. That is the first necessity - I realise it. Then, after I've realised it, you talk to me at a depth which thought has not touched. You planted a seed."
