Does a child learn to speak words before being able to read?
Yes, but how?
By associating meaning to words when 'heard'.
How?, the child uses his/her vision which could only be attributed to a basic form of telepathy.
Everyone has 'some' telepathic ability though some more than others due to 'acknowledgement' of the ability, practice and/or genetics. One can't do a
'thing' without first believing they have the ability.
A child tends to lose this ability as he/she becomes more programmed/conditioned by society.
"Give me a 5 year old, a five year old could explain this", kind of logic.
Hey, 'I' wasn't there, just trying to use my reason.
Airl didn't understand English at first though could read Matilda's thoughts and then associate those thoughts to the words she was using in context
to the situation; the same way a child does before he/she can read.
Matilda was reading the books to Airl while showing her the pictures. The books she read had pictures associated with the words as they were
childrens books designed to teach children how to read.
This is done through associating pictures with words to the context of the message. As Airl became familiar with the words from various books that
were read to her, she came to understand the language and was then able to read on her own. This shouldn't seem unreasonable especially for an
advanced being, far older/more experienced than a 'child'.
I've only heard the first 45 minutes and most likely won't finish tonight as I'm 'busy' though will plan to finish some time tomorrow. It's alot to
read/hear and absorb though might be better to listen to in totality before passing judgement. Unfortunately we are left to rely on another's
interpretation of the interview however accurate the translation is. I'd rather see something for as it is than hear Of it second hand as anyone's
interpretation could be misinterpreted/lost in translation. How often do folks claim to be 'misunderstood'. All the time.
Need to move around, beginning to get symptoms of a rash on my arse. Too much reading today. Need to shake the junk; get the groove going.
