“Life is like Sanskrit read to a pony,” said Lou Reed. That may be an accurate assessment for most people much of the time, but I don’t think it will be true for you in the days ahead. You’ll have a special capacity to make contact and establish connection. You’ve heard of dog whisperers and ghost whisperers? You’ll be like an all-purpose, jack-of-all-trades whisperer, able to commune and communicate with nervous creatures and alien life forms and most everything else. If anyone can get a pony to understand Sanskrit, it’s you.
