The word prevents actual perception

How to communicate without Words?

:face_with_monocle: :exploding_head: :crazy_face:

or the ancient art of mime?

PS. the word hides the actual, as we depend on past knowledge rather than present perception.
the word hides the actual, in the same way that what I see hides what is there - although what is there includes what I see.

All depends on what you want to communicate.
Words are useful in some cases.
Math is useful in others.
Music, dance, painting…
Face and body expresions…
Eyes…
The way we walk…
Body posture…

In fact the most important stuff should be communicated through the medium of dance.

“The word prevents actual perception” @Shankar

What led you to this conclusion?

Use another medium. Learn to draw, paint, sculpt, dance, sing, etc.

I don’t know, but apes do this in general. Infact, we are derived from them.

Good question.

As soon as i use a word,i am misunderstood. It frustrates me.

‘Direct perception’ is only ‘prevented’ when thought chooses what to see?

If so, thought needs to be included in one’s perception?

Yes, frustration is a link in the chain leading to anger which makes us to act with a clouded intellect: blaming words.
Frustration derives from (not satisfied) desire that makes us to act (to speak) which, in turn, derives from I-me-mine. It´s a matter of being attentive and to find out at what point the chain has to be broken, so that peace of mind is not disturbed. Without expecting a result for our actions triggered by desire there is neither frustration nor anger, is there?

You may be using the wrong word, or you may need to use something other than speech to avoid being misunderstood.
