Discovering the Non-self: The Construction of Language, Trance, and Space

abstract: We might conceive of a Language Acquisition Device as a useful abstraction, whether taking it as fact or not. It is understood for grammars such as those of languages, and can be applied easily to music theory and mythology. Less obvious is that our identification of space, as an active process, can be described syntactically.

A constructivist approach offers a useful description of how and why we might make distinctions between self and environs. After all, the universe is a fairly homogenous collection of elements. To what end do we impulsively project conceptual boundaries like here and not there?
