I am playing with a hypothesis; that there is no one–dimensional explanation for stuttering. The explaination seems to be a vague “collection of connections”. Mental, inherited, a trauma can trigger it. In my thoughts around this the human body and human soul– phenomenon, I think that all humans stutter. We do not reach each other, and those who stutter reveal this, rhythmically. That there is a connection between this and the cultivation of the human, that I am trained through the culture I live in to distance myself from the herd, and lose the feeling of belonging. That systems, institutions, rules and norms increase the stuttering. I train up my own children in the same system, and apply my stuttering on to them. A boy I once heard of, often wet his bed. He was told off for this by his father. The boy stopped wetting his bed, but instead started to stutter.
