My view precisely.
My understanding is that the data collection technology is vastly superior to the assessment 'technology'; that is, the consciousness which attempts
to interpret that data.
For example, the current understanding of consciousness is that there are only two dimensions: the consciousness of the "self" and the consciousness
of the 'thinker'. And these two dimensions of consciousness underlie the vast majority of data.
But what if what is being measured in the change in language is not anything that either the consciousness of the 'thinker' or the consciousness of
the "self" can predict? For example, events which result in the emergence of a completely different dimension of consciousness altogether?
That is, the language pertaining to both the consciousness of the "self" and the 'thinker' would, at that point, sharply decrease not because of
any specific events in the space-time reality; but, rather, because the manner in which events in the space-time reality are UNDERSTOOD will be turned
completely upside down.
In other words, any trauma would have to do with a change of consciousness rather than a specific event such as the outbreak of a war or other obvious
This is the kind of thing discussed in a book called The Black Swan
