After I finished my previous post, one line kept buzzing in my head.
‘Mathematics is about thought, not the content of thought, but the form in which we can hold the content of thought.’
And at the same time I was searching for a picture to visualise how that could be. Sort of structures that come into existence from an underlying ‘something’.
See if I can get the essence out of that sentence:
Mathematics = Form
Thoughts = Content
It got me thinking about what exactly the content is. And it also made me wonder if, instead of mathmatics, I also could use ‘language’, or ‘words’.
So something like:
Language is about thought, not the content of thought, but the form in which we can hold the content of thought (which might be the whole psyche, not just thoughts).
And in short:
Language = Form
Psyche = Content
Not the same as the orgininal line, but somehow this seems true as well. Or again getting back to the Core model on this blog:
Language (or conceps, consciousness, symbols, etc) = Structure
Psyche (or thoughts, feelings, subconscious, sensations, etc) = Potential
The psyche as an ongoing process of unfolding. And language that brings the psyche into existence.
Together with the other couple of energy and matter.
