What if language never happened?

I know it's an unreal hypothetical situation, but just think about the major role language and communication has played in altering the psychology of human minds. Without language, where would our world be? If you think about the idea of language, it couldn't get any more perfect.

Since the beginning of mankind, there has been a constant theme during each generation, which is building and coming out with new theories. Our current society is the result of the events that took place long before us. So if you look back in history... what you're really seeing is us. That is our progression. How would we ever have gotten here without them.

I have thought about that a lot. What's also interesting is various languages and translations. Like if there were a language from some distant place that didn't have the word "should" in it because in their society one would ever use the word should, one either does a thing or does not, there is no "should."

I have also thought that if people had not developed language to communicate perhaps instead they would have developed the ability to communicate telepathically, imagine the possibilities of developing a whole different part of the brain. What if we hadn't invented planes, trains and automobiles? Is it possible that we could astral travel to say "hi" to a friend, like an astral skype? Could we maybe teleport or "apparate" to get around? Imagine the social ramifications of people being able to do that?!

I could go on and on, these things are fun to consider.

Exactly. This is the type of stuff I've been pondering. Nice.

What if verbal language never happened... Hmm well first lrts cast away the obvious that verbal language would come about no matter what. I absolutely believe that if we haven't relied on physically speaking, that we would be doing it more mentally.

Also, I think a lot of nonphysical communication relies on facial expressions and body language. Like with animals, yes they make noises, but a lot of their communication comes from their natural instincts of each other. I'm not as quick as others to believe they just don't communicate, do maybe our path would be the same if we never started verbally speaking with each other.

I also think its very interesting how past events (even those events that some thought to be useless) can ripple into influencing the future. Even this post can send a ripple of influence.

The answer to the question of whether thought is possible without language depends on what you mean by thought. Can you experience sensations, impressions, feelings without language? Yes, and very few would argue otherwise. But there is a difference between being able to experience, say, pain or light, and possessing the concepts "pain" and "light." Most would say true thought entails having the concepts.
