When you ask someone for hearing you, it is involved a real characteristic of speaking and hearing.
Since it is a sign of someone’s bodily constitution, the voice cannot be purified from all traits of personal corporeality. And the hearing cannot do this, too.
Therefore, when the voice is meant to be heard by somebody else, the traits of at least two impenetrable personal bodily constitutions are clashing each other.
From this point of view, there are not many chances of communication. And for this reason, we often tolerate the verbal conflicts as parts of communication, since their absence would affect severely the common and false belief that humans are in a continual state of communication.
In fact, the real communication is possible whenever two men succeed in ceasing to act in virtue of their individual bodily composition. And since we are our body, it should be ceased the very fact of being ourselves. Though it is a strange supposition, it is always appealed to when we speak to others looking at them and thus filling ourselves with the image of someone who is different than us.
To ask for being heard follows the same pattern, but in the opposite direction. We pray others to accept of being filled with us, and only thereafter to pay attention to our words.
If it is rather a rare experience to ask for being heard, it is more habitual the desire of being loved by others and the communication can be viewed as an experience of love.
But as in the love affairs, the communication is always endangered by the whimsical attitude of the partners.
