Ideas are more than words
I realized that ideas are really above words, because we have lapses, that is, we want to express a concept for which we don’t remember a certain word; sometimes we remember the word in another language, but it does not come in the language we want to express the idea…
Or, sometimes after we write a thing and re-write it, we realize that it’s not really what we wanted to express and we have to re-formulate it.
I wonder how do people born deaf think about abstract concepts, when they learn the sign language for them? And I wonder do they have lapses, when they want to express signs?
In conclusion, I believe abstract ideas and thoughts are coming from above, and we, in our minds are trying to find the right words to express that high level idea.
