Splice in your body sounds with the body sounds of your best friend and see how familiar he gets

“The realization that something as familiar to you as the movements of your intestines the sound of your breathing the beating of your heart is also alien and hostile does make one feel a bit insecure at first. Remember that you can separate yourself from the ‘Other Half’ from the word. The word is spliced in with the sound of your intestines and breathing with the beating of your heart. The first step is to record the sounds of your body and start splicing them in yourself. Splice in your body sounds with the body sounds of your best friend and see how familiar he gets. Splice your body sounds in with air hammers. Blast jolt vibrate the ‘Other Half’ right out into the street. Splice your body sounds in with anybody or anything. Start a tapeworm club and exchange body sound tapes. Feel right out into your neighbor’s intestines and help him digest his food. Communication must become total and conscious before we can stop it.

The Ticket That Exploded, William S. Burroughs.
