Wondering about the state of people prior to language, what those minds were like since in our time it’s about ceaseless wording between the ears. Have heard it said our auditory memory is more supreme than the visual one, bet it is true because memory images fade blur but soundbites have a different zing crystallized quality. Memories of sound seem more vivid than the look memories, at least for me. Also heard it said we talk to ourselves always which is another way of saying experience of audio dominates the inner world. Good luck telling yourself to shut up. Good luck trying to sort out meaning when simultaneously you are the talker and the listener.
