A new language beyond any Matrix

Note: This is one of the most important articles I’ve written about what is potentially available outside the reality machine.
Anyone who reads science fiction eventually comes across a story about an alien who lands on Earth and falls into the hands of the US government.
The military holds him in a facility, while scientists try to figure out how to communicate with him. They run all sorts of tests, of course, and they bring in experts.
The solution sometimes occurs in the form of higher mathematics, “the universal language.” Equations on a page, and the alien perks up.
I’ve never read one of these stories that satisfied me. The “breakthrough” always seemed too easy. Suppose the alien was so different he spoke a vastly strange kind of language based on principles that would, if we discovered them, make absolutely no sense to us?
His language would be absolutely meaningless, no matter which way we turned it.
Our language tends to fall into two basic categories. The subject plus action-verb plus object sentence. Or the “sentences of being.”
Jones broke the stone. Action.
Jones is a man. Being.
There is the little-known work of philosopher/linguist Ernest Fenollosa, the author of The Chinese Written Character as a Medium of Poetry. Fenollosa analyzed modern Chinese words back to older pictographs that minimized nouns. Instead, these pictographs, at one time, presented a view of reality that was far more dynamic and shifting, in which action was the main event. The subject and object were themselves of lesser importance, and were related to one another by their mutual participation in that action. “To be” verbs—is, are, am—were just dead ducks.
Suppose we had a language in which every noun is also a verb, in the sense that it throws off rays and curves and vectors of action and energy.
What would we have then?
We might, at the extreme, have an endless supply of dynamic universes.
We would be communicating with each other in a way that instantly gave birth to possibilities beyond current meanings embedded in our style of speaking and writing. The implications of each word of text would jump and leap. Instead of peeling off layers to get at the precise definition of a word, we could also automatically proliferate the word and the definition.
Language, created by consciousness, feeds back to consciousness. And this feedback informs our way of viewing reality. The structure of language becomes, in a true sense, a monitor on what we can see and what we can’t see. What we can imagine and what we can’t imagine.
But suppose a psychologist, running one of those old inkblot Rorschach tests, told the patient: “Guess what? There’s nothing wrong with you. Forget all that nonsense. Look at these shapes and imagine anything you want to. Tell me what you invent. Then I’ll do the same. Pretty soon we’ll be speaking a different language, and we’ll levitate out of this worn-out reality…”
Having supper at a restaurant, you’re not likely to have your companion say, “Looking at this piece of salmon, I see a shoot-out between a twelve-legged insect and a flock of flying goats.” But it might relieve the predictable monotony.
Let’s cut out middlemen: therapeutic evaluators, test givers, interpreters, system junkies.
Instead of the standard inkblots, print out all sorts of complex shapes on a page and say, OK boys, THIS IS A LOST LANGUAGE. FIGURE OUT WHAT IT MEANS. WORK ON IT.
Then if you can nudge or inspire or bribe people to do that, they will work for a few years on believing there is really something there, something that is embedded in the shapes, and they’ll dig in and try to “decode” it. A few more years and they might throw in the towel and say, “The hell with this, let’s just make it up. Let’s say each shape means whatever we imagine it to mean, and each shape can change its meaning from minute to minute.”
Then they start writing to each other with these shapes and thousands of others they make up—and gradually, they forget about the notion that they might be crazy. After that, glimpses and glints begin to surface in their minds. They don’t know what they are, but they feel they’re de-conditioning themselves from any language they previously knew. They’re out in open water. Their operational concept of Understanding is undergoing a revolution.
They realize how tightly they clung to their old basic notion of Meaning.
They drop that, because they’re fascinated with the glints and glimpses they’re getting. They want more glimpses. They’re inventing this language with no rules and no assigned structure.
They’re experiencing sensations of flying and soaring. These sensations are feeding back into their body processes and into their minds. The hard wiring is giving way.
You could say they’re training for an encounter with an intelligence that’s completely alien to Earth.
There are analogues to what I’m discussing here. For example, microtonal music. You tune a piano so that, altogether, 88 keys display the range of sounds contained within just one octave of a conventional piano. Going from the lowest note to the highest on the microtonal piano, you hear thin slices and graduations of notes that cover, all told, no more ground than one octave of a normal piano.
You sit at the microtonal piano and you play. And play. And play.
You listen to what you play.
At first, it’s repugnant. It’s not only dissonant, it’s absurdly muddy.
But after a few months of playing that piano every day, you begin to hear something. It comes through. And the sensations it brings might remind you of places you’ve been, experiences you’ve had. But they go further, into a void where new sensations and meanings you can’t name are possible, are happening. Are real. Eventually, super-real.
These sensations flood your endocrine system, and new proportions and sequences of hormones are produced. You experience feelings you’d forgotten or never had before.
The spectrum of feeling and thought expands.
Your whole notion of what you can experience and understand changes.
Your imagination is gearing up.
You never seriously considered there could be seven comprehensible sounds between any two keys on an ordinary piano. Now, you’re not only hearing them, they make sense. They convey emotion.
This would be like saying that, between each word in the sentence, “I want to go outside,” there are seven other words, and every one of them is an action verb.

When you understand that expanded and exploded sentence, perhaps then you can talk to a captured alien from Parsec-12. He can talk to you.
After your first conversation, when you walk out of the facility where he’s under heavy guard, take the elevator down to the parking lot, and drive through the gate, you look at the desert and you see things you never saw before.
You understand why magic was hard to do. It was all supposed to be taking place in a tight reality of unbreakable connections. But now those connections have snapped. The landscape, any landscape, is much more inclusive and malleable.
You’re reminded things were this way once. And now processes in your body open up. There is a reason for them to change. They secrete information and energy that have been dormant for a long time. Dormant, because there was no use for them.
The cells in your nervous system wake up to a remarkable degree. They’ve been waiting for this moment. They turn down the volume on the perverted game show called Life they’ve been glued to for 40 years. They project rays in all directions. Your physical aliveness shifts up exponentially.
Through the walls of the holding facility behind you, you can see the alien. He’s nodding at you. Yes, he’s thinking. You’re getting the message.

This reminds me of the plot in the recent movie, “Arrival.” I have not seen it yet, so I do not know the result of the attempts to decode the alien language.
I agree, this is a very important article. We really have very few ways to describe complex states of mind. What about states of mind-flight, for example? Who knows what our minds may be capable of, if we are able to conceive of the possibilities.
Jon, have you considered writing science fiction stories? The content in is article needs to be told to the general population and in a way that they can accept and understand. Sci-fi can do that. You’d be a natural for it.
No question, Jon, linguistics is absolutely the vehicle that makes the matrix work, Like Microsoft Windows, modern languages have serious vulnerabilities, Words are so easily misused. Just one simple word, “we” now does the job beyond it pay grade as a pronoun, for example.
Being a pianist and an amateur piano tech, I found your description of micro-tuning entertaining. Of course, the whole piano would need redesigning, from the hammers to the cast-iron harp and the soundboard. But I do like tinkering with the tone quality to get something unusual out of my piano without destroying it in the process.
What amazes me, is People Signatures. They are hard to debunk, they are illegible and they never seem to be quite the sames. Every time they sign something, there is always a small difference in the signature..
I think that if you look closely, you can read the personality of this person.
On a daily signature, you could pick up their moods.
And if you follow it trough time. you could see how that person evolved or regressed
I have been thinking lately about how limiting language can be/is, especially the English language. Even toddlers make up their own words, their own shapes, their own everything, and then they go to school and slowly lose the natural instinct to create. Love this article Jon!
Thank you Jon.
I would like to share a link to a short 2013 music video called “What Fills the Gap” by Will Cady..
The video is enhanced by excepts by the late Alan Watts from his “Out of your mind” series.
I hope that some people will find this interesting.
