No one seen: Wang Wei (c.701-761) From, "Wheel-Rim River Sequence." "Wang Wei was the product of thousands of years of Chinese culture, learning and art. Living in the T'ang dynasty, he absorbed the ancient medical learning of China rapidly and became one of the youngest physicians in history. Perhaps poetry and painting were as useful to him in the treatment of disease as the herbs and poultices of his time. Wang Wei was a master of all three arts." M.L. McDonough, Poet Physicians. Springfield, IL., 1945. p.2.

Singing like: "If silence or incomprehensibility is the expression of the animate Other, we must nonetheless attend. And we must find a voice in this silence, the silence beyond 'silence,' that is not our own." M. Merleau-Ponty, The Visible and the Invisible. New York, 1962. p.167.

listening: "The French archaeologists Légor Reznikoff and Michel Dauvois conducted detailed surveys of the three decorated caves in the Ariège region of southwest France. Unconventionally, they were not looking for stone tools, engraved objects, or new paintings. They were singing. More specifically, they moved slowly through the caves, stopping repeatedly to test the resonance of each section. Using notes spanning three octaves, they drew up a resonance map of each cave and discovered that those areas with the highest resonance were also those most likely to harbor a painting or engraving." R. Leakey, The Origin of Mankind. New York, 1994.
