"Because your education does not permit you to think outside of words; you are word-bound."

"Every thought you indulge in is circumscribed. You presumably attempt to throw a thought-line forward, and yet you step backward and spin it in words that have been handed to you from the past, and, struggle as you may, you cannot liberate yourself from the nightmare. Attempt to originate an idea, and see if you can escape your word-master?"

"Scientists think in language scientific. Poets think in language poetic. Educated people use words in thinking of their subjects, words that came to them from the past, and enslave their intellect. Thus it is that the novelist cannot make fiction less real than is fact; that scientists cannot commence at the outside, and build a theory back to the phenomena understood.

In each case the foundation of a thought is a word that in the very beginning carries to the mind a meaning, a something from the past. Each thought ramification is an offshoot from words that express ideas and govern ideas, yes, create ideas, even dominating the mind. We speak of ideas when we intend to refer to an image in the mind, but in reality we have no ideas outside of the word sentences we unconsciously reformulate. Define the term idea correctly, and it will be shown that an idea is a sentence, and if a sentence is made of words already created, there can be no new idea, for every word has a fixed meaning. Hence, when we think, we only rearrange words that ca rry with themselves networks of ideas, and thus play upon their several established meanings. How can people so circumscribed construct a new idea or teach a new science?"

"Language is slowly progressing, but no new word adds itself to a language; it is linked to thought-chains that precede. In order to create a word, as a rule, roots are used that are as established in philology as are building materials in architecture. When a new sound is thrust into a language, its intent must be introduced by words already known, after which it conveys a meaning derived from the past, and becomes a part of mind sentences already constructed, as it does of spoken language. Language has thus been painfully and slowly evolved and is still being enlarged, but while new impressions may be felt by an educated person, the formulated feeling is inseparable, from well-known surviving words."

Then, how can I use words with established meanings to convey to your senses an entirely new idea? If I use new sounds, strung together, they are not words to you, and convey no meaning; if I use words familiar, they reach backwards as well as forward. Thus it is possible to instruct you, by a laborious course of reasoning, concerning a phenomenon that is connected with phenomena already understood by you, for your word-language can be thrust out from the parent stalk, and can thus follow the outreaching branches. However, in the case of phenomena that exist on other planes, or are separated from any known material, or force, as is the true conception that envelops the word eternity, t here being neither connecting materials, forces, nor words to unite the outside with the inside, the known with the unknown, how can I tell you more than I have done?"

"You are word-bound."


None-the-less let us begin our journey into the unknown, unknown that is, to all but CBCTV Zoro-Astrian Freemason priests and the artificial intelligence program (AI), their "Unknown Superior".
