Thoughts and Language from Warlock's blog

I suppose it’s long past time I finally got around to sharing something here. Been meaning to for, well, years, but life has a tendency to make finding time difficult at times. At any rate, time to stop beating around the bush and get to it.


Warning/disclaimer/etc. This is a recreational hypnosis website. You are (or should be) an adult with an interest in hypnosis, recreational and/or otherwise. You are primed to enter a hypnotic state. Though not particularly intended to induce trance the following could be considered a “conversational induction” by some. It is intended as a primer and piquer of interest towards the author (me). By continuing to read you are giving implicit consent to entering a trance state if you so choose. There is no “awakener” at the end and therefore you hereby accept responsibility for emerging from any hypnotic trance state you will find yourself in on your own. With that out of the way...


I’ve always had a love of and fascination with language. From simple basic communication to beautiful art form language has always had a wonder, a beauty for me. In particular the connection between language and thought. How each is wrapped up and intertwined to such a degree that they are more than simply symbiotic. In some ways they are one and the same. You cannot have language without thought, and you can’t truly form thought without language. Right now, for example, whatever you are or might be thinking, you’re doing so with words, with language. You could, if you so chose, say what you think, or write it down, and anyone who shared your language could hear or read it and they would know what you’re thinking right now. In doing so, they would think whatever you’re thinking right now. While actual telepathy is nothing but fantasy, we do have a very powerful and reliable method of transmitting thought, language.


While the spoken word is beautiful, wonderful, and powerful all on its own, there really is something special, almost magical about the written word. The spoken word is limited to a particular place and time, making it local and ephemeral, which does give it a beauty all its own. Not to mention how effective tone, pitch, and accent can be in communicating the tiny intricacies of thought. But the written word has a timeless, almost limitless power. As long as those who read it can understand the language, the written word can transcend time and space. These words I type, hear and now for example, you are now reading and understanding in another place and time from where and when I write them. Be it down the street ten minutes after I’ve posted it or ten years from now on the other side of the planet, my words, my thoughts make their way to you.


Also, as you read these words, you hear them in your mind with your own voice. Whether you’re reading them out loud or silently to yourself, what you hear is your own voice. Or, if you choose, you can imagine another voice for my words. But as that voice is one from your imagination, or memory if you imagine these words in a voice you’ve heard before, the voice is still yours. Reading, and being able to read, allows us not only to receive and interpret thoughts and ideas from far away and long ago, but also to more easily make those thoughts and ideas our own. 


The written word is, for the most part, permanent. Figuratively, and sometimes literally, set in stone. Available for any and all who can and wish to to read. The power of the written word is truly amazing. Whether it be scratchings on a stone tablet thousands of years old, painstaking precise markings of ink on parchment hundreds of years old, press-printed letters on paper decades old, or the typed words coded into a network days old, the written word continues, it stays. Making its way across time and space. Entering into and becoming part of any and all who read it. Just as the words I type here and now enter into and become part of you whenever and wherever you choose to read them.


And so I hope to share more of my thoughts, my ideas, my language with you. Here and elsewhere. I hope you’ll join me and if you so choose, I hope you’ll share your thoughts, ideas, and language with me.
