Seeing & Hearing

I harbor a suspicion that possibly a reason why the Torah comes in two streams, oral and written, is because the Jewish people both heard God's words and saw His words. To corresponding to the hearing, there's a stream of Torah orally transmitted generation to generation. To correspond to seeing His words, there's the Pentateuch - a written version, with words that one can see.
