Creeping Up on the Linguistic Distinction of Reality

Mark de LA says ...
Language and Objective Reality
4:31 When we look into it more thoroughly, we see that all this language-intellect has less substance than a burp. The whole domain is ethereal and has no substance whatsoever, and yet it dominates our experience and overlays our entire perception of the objective world. When we make a distinction of a physical “reality,” we consider it to be outside of concept, intellect, and language. This is the distinction or experience that we refer to as objective—unalterable by mind, and independent of our beliefs, labels, or even our ability to perceive it. Although we intellectually understand that our experience of this “world” is not the same as the world itself, we still assume that the way we interpret what we perceive is what’s actually there.

FYI, 2 things I dislike in fbi behavior
  • Wrenching comments out of context from another item.
  • Censoring anothers’ comments when you think yours are better.

BTW , I suspect at some point Peter Ralston of Cheng Hsin will talk about Language as a manipulation of something – other maybe.
