Origin of Languages

“All languages have as their basis the language that was spoken in dreams.  The need for language arose, however, as man became less a dreamer and more immersed in the specifics of space and time, for in the dream state his communications with his fellows and other species was instantaneous.  Language arose to take the place of that inner communication, then.  There is a great underlying unity in all of man’s so-called early cultures – cave drawings and religions – because they were all fed by that common source, as man tried to transpose inner knowledge into physical actuality.”

(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment, Session 893)
