The complexity of ‘reading’ goes far beyond the functional definition of the action encapsulated by such word (ie. to obtain meaning or information looking at printed or written words or symbols[1]). Just like writing – when the understanding of writing is grounded on a growing fascinated intuition or revelation about the complex substance of language – reading is an act that stretches the sense of our own minds’ existence.
