Thank you Jan! Yes, that seems to be what I experience also quite often.

Kerri, commenting on your "thought without language"...I seem to spend a fair amount of "time" (thought there's even no registering of that) in what I call "wordless space". The felt sense is contemplative, probably not involving "problem solving", in fact usually characterized as "no problem" yet still dynamic. There is a word in some Buddhist traditions translated as "unfindability." 

Just this morning I wrote a piece around art happening, how it's the marker/color/paper telling the hand where to go rather than the other way around, a sense of getting out of the way of what wants to come forward. There must be thought---I'm not brain-dead.... just musing along with your provocative post.

I wonder about thought without language often. Not like thinking in pictures or visually mediated thought or even communication of feelings in color, shape, or lines that maybe semantically obvious or faint or absent..I mean thought processes and problem solving with in the absence of any parts of language. I want to express this that I think about. But, I don't have the words and my pictures, well, I mostly don't really understand.

17.10.17 Dare Ficus Strangulenis & De Villo Sloan,...If it is  "Genuine asemicity" wouldn't that qualify as concrete poetry? Huh, Richard Canard

Genuine asemicity, resulting from play with the xaos fractal explorer.
