Processing Language

The way our brains process language is, to a large extent, a result of our experience and the resulting mapping between our ‘words’ and reality. For example, if I say the word “quarter-horse”, an image immediately pops into your head. Does it resemble a race horse you’ve seen or does it look like this?

Very interesting analogy. I do alot of work with Language as a life coach. Many of my clients must learn not only how to speak to others but to themselves as well. The language that is commonly used is so interpetable that most do not even realize what they create out of ignorance. Our speech is one the key elements of our reality. Once we learn the language of Solution we shall manifest a reality of evolution and Change.

Very funny. I recently came in contact with nlp, CBT and all the theory around how language matters to our experience. It's the funniest illustration of those concepts so far, loool. Man , what an imagination...
