The symbols for abstract concepts open up endless and incredible vistas of space and time for humans.
Concepts like “the Universe” or “atomic structure” can best be manipulated in our minds by their symbolic labels, including words and numbers. Hence, symbols can take us on unbelievable adventures. We can witness the beginning of the Universe; we can witness the beginning of the Universe; we can follow the development of life on the planet over millions of years; we can study the genetic cole of life; we can see the beginning and end of the solar system; and on and on.
To reach this stage typically takes much study. This is the contribution of high school and college and beyond. Some individuals can do it on their own while most others (my self included) need the direction offered by formal educators. But it is language that makes it all possible.
We will now look at the biggest plank in the language Bridge--memory.
