Human Coding

Watching the movie Lucy on the plane to Bangkok today there was a point where the chemically awakened Lucy, played by Scarlet Johanson, says that ” we humans think that we are so unique. We codify experience to make it more human. This is to more enable them to comprehend the unfathomable.”
It seems there is much truth in this. We seem to grasp on to meaning and what we genuinely believe to be truth. Is it possible that the truth is beyond the meaning that we give to it and the belief we invest in it.  It is quite likely unfathomable, not known as we have come to think that we can know. It may be though that it is realized in a way more synonymous with letting go of our conventional ways. In silence  it is said that the mind can open to a vastness not realized in our habitual contraction of it.
