There are extraordinary people who can conceive an idea in more than one kind of symbolic ingredient or "letters" and can even choose their own formulation, in whatever comprehensive structure they feel at ease with, whether words, numbers, colors, tones, or whatever.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslav is said to have declared that if people were able really to hear his teaching, the melody as well as the words, the dance of it, they would be released from the bondage of reality.
In other words, the same idea can be expressed in words, in music, in movement.
There is a basic ground for correspondence of things, a fundamental unity behind the variety of modes of expression or symbols.
