As is the Self-Eating Expression:’All Words Miscue!’
‘So how did Language originate?’
That’s language. A ‘Cause and Effect’ Aficionado.
‘And when did it begin?’
More language. The Temporal Man.

Still more language. The Spatial Man,
‘We all know that ‘Why?’ never has an answer, right?’
Deep language, but still language.
‘The questions are in Language. So they are invalid?’
Skeptical language, but still language.
‘So the answers are in Language. That does not make them wrong.’
Righteous language, but still language.
‘I think the Gene-Idea makes perfect sense. It’s all DNA and stuff.’
Faith language, but still language.
‘I don’t think you know the whole story. Something slippery here.’
Suspicious language, but still language.
‘As Wittgenstein claimed, is language itself the vehicle of thought?’
Thinking language, but still language.
‘None of this is very convincing. You might be right. But so what?’
Defiant language, but still language.

You can’t get to the ‘Origin’ of Language, an idea deeply embedded in a linguistic-understanding of Self and World, using Language [Language again. Yikes!].
If you do, you will build fine elegant models of the ‘Origin of Language’, a praiseworthy project. But it has nothing at all to do with the origin of Language.
So how does one get to the ‘Origin of Language’, itself a linguistic construct? You have to step out of language. And that starts with a formal Meditation Practice. And like I said, I’ll get me a video-camera someday and put up a video on this site.
