If they can't hear the words inside of your head is it really speech? Lets hope they don't because language has limited and sometimes generalised focus. I believe the thing that makes us great creators is the ability to see in between the words in our head and find new approaches. Very few make money reading a book, but most make money making them. Because if it has already been thought its value almost becomes meaningless.
I believe in taking chances, because one shouldn't fear losing a game of chance.
