We attempt to understand ourselves but can only explicate it within the confines of language. We are trapped in a perpetual loop of limited understanding, Where the secret essence Hume describes of our conjunction of cause and effect is out of our grasp; whiskied away to the penumbras of some dark, primitive form of intuition. The chemicals within our brain are trusted to tell us that they are chemicals; the imparting of meaning, or mutual understanding therein, is implied and even agreed upon, but never known, for our non-physical manifestations deny us transcendence, cruel that they are. If only we had eyes inside our brains.

If we did not have language, we would never be able to build up the burdensome ideas of freedom, existence and truth in a way which would be enunciable; those ineffable yet paradoxically enunciatory propositions, floating just like bricks don't, taunt us. We are Tantalus.

I think the only way of going about this is consuming large amounts of LSD and shrooms until the concept of language is completely erased from your psyche.


Gozd in gora poj,

uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

I'm lazy and not needing to use language would save so much time and effort
I have nothing important to say

I pretty much communicate irl with a series of grunts as is anyway
dirtbag ballet by the bins down the alley
as i walk through the chalet of the shadow of death
everything that you've come to expect

Why would you spend tens of thousands of dollars to learn about a language you already speak? It was over before it even started dude

No because if we somehow made a sustainable living without language, one would still learn to be greedy and take from others. Then problems then more problems then you've arrived at a world of conflict all over again.

You lost me at "Lubricate."

I'm raw, like nature. Nature boy. Big jungle leaves are my cum rags.

Sometimes I fuck a bamboo shoot.

there's also the issue of comprehending a complete lack of language by using language itself. I don't think we can conceive of such a thing.

i voted neither 'cuz there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so but if i don't have language how can i define these terms quite clear (i mean what i'm trying to say is how can i express let alone possess?) let's say I got a book in my hand fifty thousand words fifty thousand translations -- words words words -- how can i believe in books when my heart lies to me? -- tear up yr. dictionaries! (at times i think there are no words but these to tell what's true (language keeps me locked & repeating)) (navelgazing)

Dogs seem pretty happy. So do dolphins.

Dogs bark and dolphins go AHEHEHEHEHEH.

Look at sidewalks. They don't have a language and they get spat and stepped on everyday.

Facesitting is a violation of freedom of speech, because how can you speak when you have an ass covering your face?

I've already thought of nothingness so much that I pretty much have become a doom metal song.
