After learning a language -Why can't anyone go back and narrate what and how one experienced during the first year?

It will be interesting to explore the reasons that fill the "gap of inability" between the most efficient language learning phase and "culture bound listening phase" as Patricia says . After learning a language what prevents one to go back and bring insights, describe from that efficient learning phase in one's life. Being convinced that these insights / description once known will be objectively measurable as well. It seems the challenge in using MEG has a bias. Thus - what are those factors that prevent one to go back and recall the baby experiences while a language gets learnt - it may add new vocabulary or use existing words in a new perspective to share with others.

Closing Statement from Charan Singh

Thank you all - the spectrum of responses - from Ed Schulte, Natasha Nikulina, Casey to Adriaan Braam- brought amazing insights on this theme. My question and replies were driven by the knowledge I acquired through some, available to humanity, core sources of Wisdom that are little explored - though seems extremely beneficial for solving our current problems. The reason to ask this question was to further explore and find equivalent knowledge terms that can be commonly understood by all. Must say I tried exploring ,not missing even a small reference about " The Word" and how little we know about The Word that manifests through language as our World. Interestingly, I learnt about a Oneness frequency C132/A 432 Hrz that further led me to a great related article link http://www.jwmt.org/v1n4/readlight.html and another book title: P.D.Ouspensky - The Fourth Way, that accepts and addresses to the question asked here " why one doesn't remember and how can one develop that memory that remembers everything " Present day Science or pedagogy - sorry to state, addresses or knows only about two dimensions of that memory that inherits the potential to be developed into four. It is not about religion or faith or worshiping - it is purely about the knowledge accessible to mankind that can be gained through - easy to make observations, experiments not subjective experiences, comparisons, analysis - and using all other tools a scientific mind would use or prefer to use.

I remain indebted to all who participated and shared their valuable inputs on this thread. Thank you.

  • Mar 4 2013: Hi nn!!

    Re: "Are there any distinction between Beauty Love God Logos Truth ? We have different words , but neither of these are defined, for it is not possible to language it. "

    No distinction when in the Absolute sense ....and there in lies the key ....in the Absolute there is no "languaging" or "wording" required. And you are on track when you say languages/words are required by the "Observing" consciousness to express itself.

    Now lets return back to Charan's opener and his quote of Patricia saying "After learning a language what prevents one to go back and bring insights, describe from that efficient learning phase in one's life. "

    The specifics of the question is "what prevents on from going back" and the answer ....now that you have brought in that key pointer ...is the "Lack" of Love. The trade off for acceptance in the material / word driven / world is to disassociate from Love and get...material.......fame....power.....etc etc as the substitute.
    • Mar 4 2013: Hi Ed ! Natasha - Please also join me on the following thread that might interest you as well -

      Thanks !!
    • Mar 4 2013: Thanks Ed !! "it is not possible to language it" yet the language is of "Love" - which needs to be identified - that connects one's phase1- before learning language into phase 2- learning language and what was before the phase1 even. These three phases with the One that connects these three seems the least explored dimension, inadequately represented in current pedagogy thus remains a solution without everyone exploring it equally well. Just to clarify - religion/ God/ worship starts after being introduced to a child after first year of learning languages and starting search for meanings. This seems Pure form in itself.

        yes but don't forget there is that which the HUman brings in with it ..apriori ....from it previous incarantions ...which carry spiritual "inclanations" and set the tone for the current incarnations "tasks"

        Refering to Kuhl's talk specifically...it is scarry how she is delighting in here hopes to discover ...by scoping the childs brain ( head region only) for the ultiate answer ...when it is right there ...in the Beautiful eyes of the child strapped in the machine!!!

        Kuhl reminds me of my grade one scholl teacher with a voice out of a tight lornax area...very fearfull!!!
        • Mar 5 2013: Her voice sounds scary, indeed ! :)
        • Mar 6 2013: ;) I agree Ed and Nn - I remember some of my school teachers in a similar intimidating or mockery styles. Over 7 billions of us don't need a machine to go back and recall how one may have experienced !! the challenge seems in barrier through current pedagogy seems to discourage " Inquiry into the Being and that too using Dialogical approach" !! "previous incarnations " theme doesn't fascinate me - Now is the moment to explore to purposefully spent Now seems the purpose
