I think when we talk to others we're really talking to ourselves. It's like the conversations you have in dreams. The person you're conversing with in the dream is really you, you're just not aware of it.

If you write a note to yourself today and read it 10 years from now, the person reading the note is no longer the same person who wrote the note. Maybe communication is just passing around notes to ourselves from different places in time and space and other dimensions of experience.
