Nothing keeps both of these statements from being simultaneously true,

o Languages are fundamentally flawed and thus unable to express the

o Things are fundamentally impossible to understand.

Its not a very /relevatory/ state to assume that reality is in, but
certainly not impossible or even improbable.
