verbal vs non verbal

Posted to Utterances




Well I don't think my agreement with the 90 per cent finding has anything to do with it's factuality or not. I will say I don't know what the percentages really are. But it seems plausible in my observations since language and thought is a rather late bloomer in the length of animal evolution. If anything other than simple concrete exchanges of observations thought is generally not very communicative although most think they are communicating at a deeper level, it generally is just two monologues going on. What does this say about literature? I don't think it says anything about the written word. That is a different situation altogether.
