Day 23: Hypocognitive

I read an article on hypocognition yesterday that brought me back to some of my time in the classroom where we discussed the idea of the connection between words and concepts. For example, when you say “chair” what comes to mind? It’s not necessarily the same image or concept of a chair that comes to my mind. And what about stories and humor? How often do we lose things in translation or find that there is no significant equivalent in our language or another? Colors, concepts, even emotions–how many different forms of love are there?

Food for thought.
