Whereas, if a piece of communication opens space in our thinking (though confusion/deconstruction), our intuition will use that space (/slack) to travel further into and integrate into our ways of being.

When communication (/experience) is transformational, we remember it for its frame rather than a picture. It leaves us with a new way of seeing the world and being ourselves.
