Some time ago I watched the video ‘The divided brain and the making of the western world’ from Iain McGilchrist.

In the previous posts I tried to describe an experiment with language and thought. It is an experiment in David Bohm’s book ‘Wholeness and the Implicate Order’ called ‘The Rheomode’. In that book he proposes a new mode to use language, and in these posts I want to talk about my understanding of that experiment. […]
