Language thinks us and so we must resist its insidious influence so as to rid ourselves of the crushing presence of the déjà-dit.

-- Flemish poet-critic Jan Baetens.



If language thinks us
it is conscious;
if language thinks us
we are patterns
distributed across space
evolving in time,
we cooperate as neurons
in pre-designed algorithms,
carried by
reason,
habit
intuition,
we enable decisions,
transmit choices,
convey solutions,
we under-lie imagination
discovery
and creation;
we allow language
to express what it thinks
what it means
who it means:
we are the meaning.
