I've mentioned before that I think you would find Lynne Kelly's work enlightening, and at least tangentially relevant, and this post is a good example of how her subject matter and yours are connected. If you're interested in what else affords culture-carrying capacity (once you already have speech as a foundation), or if you want insights into how the oldest continuous human cultures teach those skills that cannot be learned by watching, or the practical function of many things that may appear purely ceremonial, I'd encourage you to add "The Memory Code" to your reading list.

This is the best article i have ever read on Internet and the way you described about presentations is awesome. I am from Philadelphia and looking for the Best psychologists in Philadelphia because of some relationship problems.I must say that this article is so much helpful.

Thank you,

Proto-language, like the ancient ancestors we have evolve from is alive and flourishing today, we call it art. I call it the Second-Language, the Social-Language. “It’s where new words are continually being formed” (Merleau-Ponty).

What many think of as proto-language, is in fact our dream language. Because that’s what dreams are; monologues about lived experiences. Thus, the metaphorical similarity we imagine are the basis of social dialogues. You know archetypes. Because, for me, the water archetype holds the same exact meaning in my dreams as it held for humans of the Stone-Age.

However, training the human mind in the technologically evolved form of its proto-language, i.e., the Third-Language, blinds us to our natural metaphorical language, because they are now mutually exclusive mind sets. As such, the trained Third-Language mind thinks of Language, Art and Dreams (LAD), as being distinctive phenomena, when they are in fact one and the same.

To understand the process of the evolution of human language and mind, we have to go back to the very beginning, to the cave walls. Because that is where we find the first externalization of our dream language, right down to its sub-syntax.

For example, the cave of Altamira is a unified theory of a galactic cycle, what we call a Great-Age. That’s right, the term PREHISTORIC is incorrect To use a cliche, the only way to convince anyone is to see it visually, because as stated previously, the manner we think and write are now mutually exclusive mind sets to our natural proto-language. The same language you “speak” each evening when dreaming!

The following blog page explains the metaphorical meaning of each visual from Altamira in greater detail:
