Such specialists develop and keep to themselves esoteric obscure languages and symbols which make it difficult for non-specialized people to understand the questions which preoccupy the specialists, and even more difficult to understand the specialists' answers to the specialized questions. Specialized languages, symbols, questions and answers are inevitable; but alienation between specialists who understand specialized languages, symbols, questions and answers on the one hand, and other people on the other hand---is not inevitable. The question is how interested are the specialists in transcending the alienation between themselves and the other people who are not specialists in the same way they are. If the specialists do not care to transcend the alienation, then alienation is inevitable. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
