To learn is to loose skills

For everything you learn you loose some skill. You learn language, you leave the world of feeling forever. At least a part of that world. Or isn’t there always language going on in your head? Don’t you try to clothe your feelings in language to explain them? To yourself and to others?

Can you imagine a world without language? You had it once – but most of us have lost it. Perhaps it comes back in old age – but we won’t be able to tell it. We might be able to feel it being with those without language and not treating them as being impaired – but as people commanding skills we lack. As people we can learn from how to to de-learn. The very young, the very old, those not having acquired language for some reason.
