Doctordick Posted May 3, 2017 Share Posted May 3, 2017 The issue of understanding reality is something I would like to seriously discuss. There is an aspect of that issue which no one seems to have any interest in thinking about. The issue I refer to is the fact that no one is born capable of considering the problem. Every person who has ever tried to think about that issue had to first learn the language spoken by their contemporaries. The underlying problem is that each and every one of them makes the assumption that they understand the language they have supposedly learned. I would like to discuss the issue without making any assumptions about the language being examined. This constitutes a problem as even discussing the issues requires we use a language. I have a subtle means of working around that underlying issue which is apparently difficult for people to comprehend. My attack requires two fundamental concepts: first, establishing a mechanism for representing any conceivable language and second, establishing a mechanism capable of defining the concept of understanding within that representation of the language without actually defining the language itself. In my discussion I would like to use English as the discussion mechanism in order to refer to some underlying aspects of the unknown language being represented. If anyone is interested, let me know and I will make a serious attempt to explain my thoughts in English. Thank you for taking the trouble to think about the issue.
