  “language” of thinking as trans-linguistic
individuality of genesis, part 7 of 8

Since the “triarchic” model of intelligence meshes nicely with Gardner’s model of seven distinct intelligences (cited earlier), the claims of mental science (normally called “cognitive science,” but it’s about more than cognition per se) that mind is primordially non-linguistic are richly explicable (though ironically, we do so through linguistic means), which I outlined nine years ago, relative to studies circa 2008 on “cognitive linguistics” (“enlanguaging mind,” which should be updated).

Proximally, this allows for a model of generative conceptuality (across years of individuation) and phenomenal conceptuality (across any scale of enstancing and enframing—traditionally called “representation”) that I will distinguish further below (“emergingness irt ordinary conceptuality”).

The “genetic” (or individuating) basis of differentiated phenomenality is experienced as the depth-structural horizon of phenomenality, as if phernomena self-differentiate and autogenously interface. An exemplary kind of example is effective free association with phenomena which may result in new differentiations, extrapolations, and interpolations of phenomena as if evincing from the self-relating and self-differentiation of proximal phenomena “themselves.” A person’s self-“heightening” capability for intensive free association is experienced as the self-disclosing (self-enriching, self-enhancing) of phenomenality itself.

From an observer perspective (developmental reconstruction), this is explained in terms of intensified or enhanced capability within comprehension. But it’s experienced as the self-enhancement of phenomenality by way of self-disclosing background generativity, as if phenomenality is “flowering” from within itself, autogenously (when not “behaving badly”).
