" In the song of whales
Contains a lot of complex information
Put into words what is on your mind
Just express about half of it
But the whales in the sea
Maybe they can see what their think
One hundred percent directly to the other
One hundred percent
Communicate the feelings without saying anything "
Human beings regard language as the most important achievement and development foundation of human civilization and produce the most basic conditions to maintain the operation of human society. Language, therefore, and as a necessary ability that is infinitely close to human nature, becomes the main way for us to perceive the world as individuals. At the same time, as individuals, we need to spend a lot of time on language learning and training at an early stage, whether through environmental influence or specific language learning methods.
2. Critical Thinking
Therefore, as a tool of some form, language undoubtedly plays a vital and indispensable role in the development of diversification of human exploration, because it establishes the basic channel of human communication and interaction with the standard of an objective tool. People may therefore be immersed in mutual understanding through a unified language, that is, by giving each other acceptable alternative language to communicate and being able to convey their own behaviors, motivations, and ideas. As we know, in almost most of our subjective expressions, expressions such as speech, image, symbol, text, dynamic, or rhythm can be used as a referential language approach. While we recognize the greatness of human language, I am also thinking about whether human language achieves true information transmission accuracy, in other words, how to ensure that people can accurately and completely understand what the other party wants to express, including real feelings, emotions or some subjective emotions. And the contrast with human language as a language tool possessed by other creatures in a worldview larger than humans.
Let me make a simple guess about the specific transmission of information through language: If human will be some kind of mood or some experience of feeling to express through the way of language and its application, and the other one party can through text (for example, the common social media text or voice communication), or a combined language voice tone expression and body language, and the auxiliary understand the expression of the contents and delivery (face to face communication or video conference calls, etc.), But at the end of the process, the recipient can still understand and empathize only through his or her own experience. In other words, if the content expressed by one party belongs to a shared experience, and on the basis of language standards, the recipient's understanding and empathy for the content of the information sender will be higher than the former.
However, it is known that precisely because different personal experiences continue to shape each person's different personality and diverse character traits, we do not have the ability or ethical sense to urge any one person to accept a particular or additional experience in order to understand the subjective content expression of another person. Then, based on the condition of common experience empathy, is there any better or other information transmission mode to achieve a higher level of information transmission and expression conversion rate of human beings? And whether this mode of transmission can be a new standard, a new channel, a kind of existence that gets rid of or goes beyond the basic language meaning.
3. Insight Direction
Think of language in conjunction with the senses, because the senses are still, to some extent, the primary way of making and receiving language. I define current human language as an objective tool that can be assisted and supplemented by the human senses. However, the five senses of human beings exist as one of the most basic receptors for external things, which is the main way of mutual transmission between subjective and objective. Therefore, language and senses can be defined as "cognition" and "perception" to some extent. "cognition" is undoubtedly the understanding generated by human beings through feeling and understanding of the objective world and receiving feedback. But the language was created as an objective standard, the nature of humans through the guidance of "perception" is the objective of the study and produce "cognitive", so the objective of human language to a certain extent, as a society constitutes the basic understanding, or some kind of "cognitive" standard, and the common standard of "cognitive" to a certain extent, exchange, and interaction. Going back to the most basic human sensory perspective, can there be some kind of "perceptual" language that goes beyond "cognitive" language? Can there be information transmission or empathy with the most essential "perception" as the basic gateway? Or is it possible to go beyond basic human senses to create more independent ways of conveying information?
Everything seems to be empty and ungrounded, but to some extent, thinking about the meaning of language still has forward-looking value, because we seem to get rid of the thinking shackles and inertial logic brought by the current era. Perhaps in the future, such a level of information transmission and empathic communication can be easily achieved through material basis and technological application. However, considering the current development direction and trend based on language communication and social interaction, I have to reflect on the question of necessity. Because to some extent, I think the current development trend of human social language and interaction has entered a state of introversion, which is more an application development process based on inertia bondage.
Of course, both the breakthrough possibility of "cognitive" language and the exploration possibility of "perceptual" language are reflections on the deeper communication and understanding of human beings in the future based on language tools. For requirements and more application problems, we seem to have no ability to think in advance and refute them. For example, perhaps "perceptual" language allows us to communicate across species, because we can perceive the state and information it wants to convey without knowing the specific linguistic basis of each other's species, forcing one to learn the other's language system or creating a third language. Or perhaps the last privacy of human's own subjective world is no longer hidden and safe. But I think the emergence of both insight and possibility questions provides a better and more diverse perspective.
