I am not sure about everybody else but when I have thoughts, if I think about an apple I hear the word appled in my head in my native language. I do
not necessarily have to think of a picture of an apple and when I do think of pictures instead of words it actually appears to take slightly more
effort for me.
Now I may make a little assumption here and presume most other people are like me, please correct me if I am wrong. So if we do use our thought
association in a linguistic kind of way then how does this affect a person that does not understand a language. Does that make their brain's less
capable of thought than those that do understand language? also just thinking out loud here but does that mean all the animals aside from a much
lowerf intelligence also maybe do not have the ability to think beyond instintice actions?
Just putting these thoughts out there with the hope of some constructive discussion on how other people think their own brains work.
