“Exactly why did you pick me?”
“Because you paid attention,” Yewell stated. “Do you think you’re the only one we’ve sent messages to? That’s our entire mission here: to speak to your people.”
“I thought you wanted me to write about marketing?”
“So what’s that have to do with life?”
“I don’t understand.”
“Most don’t,” Yewell said with a shrug. “That’s why we want you to help us. You see, as often as we try to communicate with your kind, most of you turn a blind eye.”
“Or a deaf ear,” Iman interjected.
“Exactly,” Yewell continued. “Your kind has greatly excelled at using your power to create many wonderful things with your words, however you have also used them to build boundaries and fortresses outside of which you can no longer comprehend.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, you humans have developed this habit of only using ten percent of your brain. If we try to speak to you in a manner that is beyond what you allow yourself to use, the majority of you miss it. So we figured that we’d try to speak in a language that you’d understand though a conduit that you can relate to.”
“And you think that marketing is the language and I’m the conduit?”
“That wasn’t so hard now, was it?” Yewell said.
