It’s almost a guarantee that if you speak about the unspeakable, that you are in fact thinking in terms of plain speech. The speech that is not covered with hidden vocabulary and pillows to help bruised egos. It’s the type of talk that is filled with anger. This is the type of anger that borderlines pure insanity and wishes nothing but contempt to what was just seen. It is hard to come to the realization that you saw this evil thing.
