Plain stimulation of ventral sensorimotor cortex makes sound,
Coordinates lip and jaw and tongue and breath through larynx stirred;
But just a sound.
Devoid of will and heart and hope and soul,
That precise shaping and filling of void projecting sound is meaningless;
Is empty sound.
Fuelled with faith and breath of life itself, sound takes on more than form
Takes on more than meaning and interpretation
Takes on power
Becomes life. Or death.
The empty space is filled.
