27.. BORN DEAF…

BORN DEAF!!……An opinion I read recently…..

“Hello, an interesting question… If a person is born deaf and does not learn a language then what language is their inner monologue in. It’s all a bit Cartesian Theatre from my days at uni. I’m guessing the brain has a universal inner monologue language that is expressed through a facade layer of recognised languages. Interested to hear your thoughts. I’ll ask my bilingual colleague what language she ‘thinks’ in.”

My reply….

“My view is that this person would ‘think’ in terms of the other senses…. images, movements, situations, touch, temperature, taste, smell… all of which will be enhanced by the lack of the hearing sense. 

Dogs and other animals don’t have language as we think of it, but they communicate very subtly via energy transference of all kinds, including emotional. 

I think that our guess that a person born deaf internalises some form of language, is as far from the truth as it can be! 

We could only come anywhere near an understanding of how they link with the world around them, if we too were born deaf. 

Hence also our very poor guesses at what the world of an autistic child is like, or a person born blind. 

Our attempts to understand or identify with people in this position come from OUR standpoints, and not THEIRS!!.. This is the main flaw in our attempts to understand or communicate with them, and.. the reason for our continuing failure. 

We should try to just ‘be’ with them… in the moment.😊… and move on from there. 

We must meet them where THEY are, and not where we think they are!… in the moment, without language as WE know it. 

I often think that language has become the main barrier to understanding, wisdom, and true communication in humankind, because it can never adequately express or communicate the most important aspects of life, and it is prone to so much misinterpretation, and creates masses of misunderstanding, because its meanings are so different for each person, each situation, each time, and all the possible permutations of those three!…. And that’s not even taking into account the degree and types of differences in people,situations, tone of voice, etc……. which is why most of us should use a lot less of it!!… Especially me!! 🤐. 😄”

Your views??

26:  REALLY IMPORTANT!..

           COFFEE COLOURED PEOPLE!!?           

Important!..  Please…. read this entire post!!

With regard to the existing worldwide filter of, “race/colour/creed”, which exists in virtually every mind-set, regarding the way that we think of, treat, or even ignore, other people; the sooner it is abandoned… the better!!!

Remember the song by the inter-racial group, Blue Mink… “Melting Pot” from 1969?…..

[Please… read ALL the lyrics!! Don’t stop reading because your conditioning is telling you that you are reading something unacceptable!! 

Please… don’t make any judgements until you’ve read this whole post!!…..

Otherwise… 

….you my just find that you have lapsed back into a wrong mind-set, which is all to easily done in the current racial climate!! 

This song was written with the intention of curing wrong attitudes, and all the terms used, were actually terms of endearment at the time… ie. people were ALL needed for the mixture to work!]

A link to the YouTube film of the original performance is at the end of the lyrics……

                          MELTING POT..

“Take a pinch of white man

Wrap it up in black skin

Add a touch of blue blood

And a little bitty bit of Red Indian boy

Ooh Curly Latin kinkies

Mixed with yellow Chinkies

If you lump it all together

Well you got a recipe for a get along scene

Oh what a beautiful dream

If it could only come true, you know, you know

Chorus:

What we need is a great big melting pot

Big enough to take the world and all its got 

And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more

And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Yeah Lord…

Rabbis and the friars

Bishops and the Gurus

You got the Beatles or the Sun God (it’s true)

Well it really doesn’t matter what religion you choose

No No No Ooh

Mick and Lady Faithful

Ohh and Mrs. Graceful

You know that livin’ could be tasteful

Aaah We should all get together in a loving machine

I better call up the queen

It’ s only fair that she knows, you know, you know…

What we need is a great big melting pot

Big enough to take the world and all its got 

And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more

And turn out coffee coloured people by the score.”

(Repeat Chorus and fade).

THE SOONER THE ABOVE SENTIMENTS BECOME A REALITY, THE BETTER!!!!

The sooner we can all rise above the conditioning of being offended just TOO easily, the better!!!

YES???!

The only person we can really influence, and be sure they have abandoned this dreadfully stupid, illogical way that they judge and treat each other, is OURSELVES!! 

Only then can we hope that our example will affect others!

25:  Food For Thought……

Food for thought:- Some of my favourite Nietzsche quotes…….
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
“There are no facts, only interpretations.”
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
“Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.”
“He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”
“All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.”
Enjoy your meal!😄
