Talking is essential. I wouldn't say especially for me. But yes for human survival talking is essential. Various aspects of life are brought to you by talking . For it is when you talk, that you improve. Maybe if I hadn't talked I wouldn't know what all is going on in another universe. And that universe existed just a few miles from my house. It was another mind. Each mind is a universe. It has it's own set of rules, principles,demonds and lords.
