–I’m just getting back into using my blog again as I’d abandoned it, I know. But I wanted to introduce and explore lightly a concept that underpins almost every other concept I hold close to my mind and soul– the wordless realm–
Here’s an exercise: Look around you wherever you are, whatever environment you’re in. How do you process what your physical senses are receiving? Almost immediately your mind categorizes everything into words, but for a very split second before that occurs, you get a glimpse into a world without words
We’re inundated from early childhood with the idea that we must bag, tag, and label the world around us into words. But is there a possibility that by doing so, we’re disabling ourselves from seeing vastly more of the world we live in? It’s all about perception and words are, in a way, the building blocks of our perception. And if we don’t have a word for something, we feel lost or perhaps we toss it aside and just tell ourselves it’s not important because no word or phrase exists to explain it
Our minds are programmed to package the world around us into words, into language. But I believe that could be a handicap when it comes to accessing our true capabilities as human beings
The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis introduces the idea of linguistic relativity. In short, it’s possible that the languages we use to package our perception of the world around us into affect how we view the world. I heavily believe this to be true and it makes sense
Perception dictates what we believe about our capabilities in the world we’re interacting with. We already know that. But what if it runs far deeper than selfhelp mantras and getting ourselves through the various obstacles life presents us?
When we’re presented an obstacle, we may be inclined to feel stuck and powerless, but with a simple shift of perspective and word, the obstacle dissolves. What if our entire reality/realities are coded in these words and if we just shift our language use we could open up doors to limitlessness, to infinity?
I’m gonna introduce another idea dear to me– An individual in touch with their creative self is so powerful nothing can overpower them. It’s about the mind. The mind dictates our perception and thus the possibilities we see in front of us. The creative mind is able to turn x into y or f or into all at the same time. The creative mind is uncapturable. The creative mind can perceive infinite possibilities and can see clearly that all obstacles exist only in the mind
To tie this back to the concept of ‘wordlessness’, if you look around you and just remove all words, all labels(meaning, if you see a tree, forget the word tree or the concept of a tree), what do you see? For a second, you’re able to perceive timelessness, infinity, limitlessness because those concepts of time, finity, and limitation are encoded with words
My other idea is that these concepts can change the world for the better. In fact, I believe they can save the world
But I also have a question I’ve put myself on a journey to explore: Can access to a wordless world enable access to ‘superhuman’ capabilities or possibilities within our realities we see as impossible? Can we essentially ‘break the matrix’ just by using words? Can we possibly repackage our perception into a new language that enables us greater power as creator beings?– These are some of the concepts I aim to explore. I’m a child. I’m a beginner, an eternal beginner. I don’t know the answers. I want to experiment, I want to play, I want to explore and I want to push the limits
–This isn’t complete and I haven’t dived too deeply, but I’m aiming to become more consistent so that I can enable this all to make sense to others besides just myself and so that I can explain what it means and why it matters because it is massive–
