Shifting worldview through moving to a different way of coding reality...
When I was working in Brazil last year, I spoke next to no Portuguese.
But after about 4 weeks (out of 12 weeks) the world started to change in front of my eyes as I saw how words are sounds attached to objects (e.g. a tree) and concepts (e.g. the process of mind we call 'guessing'). These are two of the ways we code our experience - we point at an object, we describe the concept. Different languages have different sounds for either. And it is the concepts that often are tricky to describe.
When you change the language, you change the worldview which essentially has to exist in conceptual mind, which is the only place the object can be placed other than where it is!
Have a great weekend, M
