This is a good question, one that I too have thought about...
Obviously I have no idea... but maybe without language thoughts would be more of "hunger, thirst, tired, fear, anger, etc" Not in a language of
course... but more along the lines of those feelings you get... when you feel hungry, not thinking you are hungry, you just... know.
It does seem any kind of critical thinking skills would be incomprehensible without a language to think them in.
About our consciousness, however, I'm sure there is something that we could not even fathom at work there. A pure knowing, instead of thinking.
