Evolution

No. You’ve got it wrong. Even ‘mere’ mating requires language, which mandates shared ideation. It is this and other very similar things which in fact drive ‘evolution.’

Lingual and Non-Lingual Consciousness

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/there-is-no-such-thing-as-conscious-thought/

 

You’re right.  We don’t and can’t think in words.  We think in terms of (apparently unique) representative, non-linear systems.

 

Language and consciousness are necessarily unrelated; this has no connection to whether humans make choices.  Add into that, civilization consists of repression.  It depends on the growth of rules and ever-closer government of behavior.  Because of that civilizations become unable to deal with the actual environment and die.

 

Please do at least scan the referenced article.

*Lingually [stem; lingual; concept is adaption by means of language, particularly definitions]; my memory sez adaptation.
