but i donít think thereís any question that language greatly helps to articulate thought. it is unquestionably directly responsible for huge leaps towards sophisticated living and tribal arrangements... then agriculture... then civilisation.

without precise language, precise ideas cannot be easily communicated.

i just read an article which claimed that neanderthals could basically do everything that sapiens did, such as art, sophisticat3d tool-making, and language. they were the only other ape besides us that could talk with the full vocal range of modern humans, apparently.

Ive been discussing this....

One guy did assume they think in sign language. But what would someone born deaf before sign language think?

Or...what would you think if born in the wild never hearing humans speak?

Its hard to even imagine non "verbal" thinking in advanced ways. Problem solving....decision making.

I bet one could be trained to think non verbally but it would be nearly impossible once you have learned to speak and know words.

Its like...a whole other kind of thought our brain never has to work on. Maybe thats that percentage of our brain going unused. Though ive been told that is nowhere near the 90% the myth says it is.

iver heard its analgous to your house.

you are never in all rooms of your house at once, you use them at different times. but that doesnt mean that if you are in your kitchen, that the other rooms in your house are going to waste.

you only use 10% of your brain at one time.

sorry, urban legend.

scientists never actually thought that. look it up sometime.

it doesnít make sense, anyway. other humans who used even 11% would have out-survived, out-competed 10%íers over time. etc.

We already partially think non verbally in our every day lives. When your mind brings memories and images in to context that is still a form of thinking.

The way I was taught to understand it was think about a tree. Got it? You don't think of the word "tree". You dont see the letters or the word. You see what you percieve a tree to be.

I'd assume those people who can't really think in language, think in images of perceptions.

I saved a hummingbird yesterday....


Girl at work saw it on the floor in a corner and asked me to see if it was ok. She also said "And dont kill it!" as if im...just that type of guy. I was almost offended she felt the need to ask me not to kill a hummingbird.



Anyway...I thought it was dead but it wasnt. It was barely moving. I assumed it must have gotten stuck inside and its super fast metabolism must have it starving to death.

So I poked a bunch of holes in a cardboard box and got a coffee cup and painted a red mark on it with a marker(they are attracted to red...which is why thats the color of hummingbird feeders). I put him(I decided its a male...males are the colorful ones) in the box and mixed some sugar from by the coffee in with some bottled water. Poked a tiny ass hole in the cup with a paper clip so the sugar water just barely dripped out. I intended to see if it would eat the sugar water out of the hole through the cup but it was too weak to get up. So instead I took a plastic stirrer and got some of the "nectar" in it and dripped it onto the end of its beak. It just lay there looking dead.

Seemed kinda hopeless:

So I kinda leaned its mouth into the water....



After a while it started drinking it



http://imageshack.us/a/img30/6686/pkav.jpg

Slowly. but it was clearly sucking it up.

And after a while it just stood up. It didnt try to fly. Just stood up. So I put it on the cup with the sugarwater/hole/red dot and it was trying to kinda get at the drops. Then I decided...**** it. Im invested now. And I went and copped it a feeder.



So now:




By the end of the day he was actually kinda strong. Not flying but...up and about.



I gave him to the ho who was so concerned I might kill him. She said she would take care of it. Shes an animal ass ho.

I named him Reggie. As in Reggie Theus. But I didnt tell her the Theus part. That ho doesnt know Reggie Theus...

A hummingbird dropped dead out of the sky inches from hitting my face a couple years back. It was scary and amazing at the same time.
Iirc correctly, I shared a pic on here of the corpse, but I doubt I'll find it now.

Tell us about South Carolina. You seem too intelligent to be living in a backwater like that. Like you should be in a big metro somewhere, doing big things.

I can't even name a city in the state off the top of my head.
