Re: Without language, there is no thought.
The word "language" can refer to many different things. Let me suggest that maybe one of the most interesting ones is:
OK, some may say that's being metaphorical about or playing loose with the notion of "language". But I'd like to suggest that maybe such people haven't deeply considered what the purpose of language is.
"language" in its broadest possible sense.
So, let's consider language in that sense. Not just spoken or written language. Probably something even broader than pattern languages. What I'm saying is, let's look at any means of communication between two beings -- or between or within a being themself/itself.
In this sense, "language" is anything that creates or is (inter)relationship or interaction. The fifth dimension is the world of thought. Obviously, since there are dimensions higher than the fifth, all relationship in dimensions six plus doesn't involve thought!
An interesting question is: just how real a phenomenon is "language" in this broad sense? Well, in all my experience spiritual enlightenment is all about being able to let go, in a profound way. Let me be more specific. It's all all about being able to accept that in your relationship with yourself, the relationship is what's more real -- not "you"!
So, "language" in this broad sense is intimately tied up with whatever is the deepest, fullest reality. May I suggest you could accurately say "language" in this sense is God, or the Divine? That's provided you don't of course have some unfortunate notion that God is anything like an object, or similar to a what a noun can be used for, or like a "me".
