It is obvious. You know your perceptions, but you can't communicate them. You cannot stuff your perceptual perspective in another's head. However, you CAN describe it in words. Communication does NOT communicate the THING ITSELF, but ABOUT it. All meaning has this property of reference, or 'aboutness". Thus there are experiences, which are not communicable, and descriptions of them, which are.
