Dialogue of Difference Speaking for the Other in Aboriginal Writing
Nothing is entirely separate, for we also participate in those events, you and I, standing or sitting and thinking of those specific individuals and actions, those particles and waves, interacting with my consciousness, as these words interact with yours, and you in your turn impinge on the quality and intensity of my experi -ence, for my concern for you affects my care and approach to what I write. And in some similar fashion those others are constrained and influenced by our remote participation, their actions and attitudestouched [sic] and turned by my act of reiteration and your act of interpreta- tion. Such loops are the links in a chain that binds the universe, even as it flies apart.
