    LOL! I wonder what language is spoken in heaven? Do you think there'll be a Garritanox/Celestial dictionary?

    They don't need language there; everyone communicates directly mind-to-mind.

    Well, that would indeed solve a few headaches as far as getting words out of the library is concerned!

    Well if everyone communicates mind-to-mind, then what language do they speak in their heads?

    Or don't you think in your native language as well as speak in it?

    Not necessarily so. When I was immersed in a foreign country and speaking the language, I thought in that language. Sometimes when I recall a conversation in Germany, I can not remember what language was spoken, although the ideas that were exchanged are clear.

    No, that was Holy Guacamole!

    Actually, I did this littel mockup to respond to something someone on this forum said to me about sainthood and then it occurred to me that it fit perfectly with the Choral Libraries -- Gary played me a demo during the "chat with Gary" day.

    Well, on one level I think alot, and that's in English. But before the thought comes into language, at a deeper or more primal level of consciousness, there's a percpeption of some sort (of something inner or outer), which is the starting impulse. And that has no inherent language (but could (possibly) be expressed in any language -- although for some things, there are no existing words). We use language to connect to each other over what seems to be a vast divide -- of our perceived separation. Oftentimes, it (language) is a blunt instrument at best (so we use other means, too, like music). But the original perceptions can exist without linear thought, and therefore without words. How do you write music? there is a perception of something, but no language -- even musical language comes a moment after, however brief that moment may be... and how am I writing this, then, in English? First I have to have perceived something about the nature of pure thought directly (or have a memory of having done so). Only then can I put it in words, and they are, at best, blunt instruments.

    Well Graham, words is still words I'm afraid! So, unless Gary's planning a "silent mind" sound library, looks like you're stuck with it!! LOL! (Or unless the library can communicate meaning with thought-waves instead of sound-waves, but i doubt people -- or technology -- are/is ready for that one yet!!
