Only Knowledge Matters

on March 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

This article, with the link attached below, shares insight into how the brain processes language. However, it needs slight adjustments to become more accurate. Sight does have a sizable influence on language, but not because you see language. Knowledge, I believe, is the point that keeps getting missed.

Because of the way the brain works, there would naturally be sub-states of language. Sound recognizable concepts: lions roar, thunder, baby’s cry, and so many more sounds would rely on sound, and possibly sound only. These are innate! Articulate speech is not innate. Articulation is learned from calls, cries, and other natural sounds.

The two systems come into play as soon as you convert into articulation. Sound-knowledge gets diverted through a belief system. To make understanding easier, let’s call it belief-knowledge. Why? Because as soon as you learn to articulate language, you can learn to manipulate language to deceive. Boldly, you can lie! A natural mistrust within the brain would override hearing if it became questionable.

Sight on the other hand, would hold the truest sense we have to work with, everything being equal, because it does not rely on hearsay. Sight-knowledge would become a more selectable trait, than sound-knowledge. At least as far as articulation.

In the end we have three sub-systems: sound-knowledge, sight-knowledge, and articulation-knowledge. Articulation-knowledge can’t be trusted, so it converts to belief, faith, or trust. This gives rise to a filtering system, where sight, when available, overrides sound-articulation.
