"Graphic language" - research (summary report)
This research was done in our center in the “Laboratory” on 20 February 2015. Please find below the summary report.
Research objective: “Graphic language.”
Research method: systemic modelling.
Double model was used embodying logic of excluded middle and tetralemma.
Many terms are quoted because, for example, symbols, signs, drawings etc., were initially used in the graphic language.
During the research, we were trying to cover this notion as much as possible without focusing and narrowing ours and group’s attention on culturological, national, geographic and other particulars.
Graphic language was born as the result of people’s desire to create something that could help them describe and share their experiences, having felt the need to create material things, which could help other people experience those times and states that the author undergone.
During graphic language development, spoken language was scarce. It was impossible to verbally express, tell the things people wanted to share with others.
People faced such challenges as oligologia. So graphic language was created to circumvent restrictions of a spoken language. That said the writer believed that the “reader” would be able to experience the feelings as much similar to his own as possible, even the physical ones. Having read the “text”, he is granted access to “author’s” experience; even assume his position while reading.
While writing the text the person keeps coming back to the subject matter hence discovering in the “work” and his experience something new each time. This process has a paradox because trying to circumvent restrictions of a spoken language the graphic language created new restrictions when you have to look back, revise and correct in order to get the idea across to the reader as explicitly as possible. The research has demonstrated that only when the “author” understands that everything is documented in details, that he shared everything he wanted to and could, then he considers his “text” to be complete and is ready to give it to the “readers.”
Apparently, the graphic language facilitated further development of a spoken language bringing it to a higher level of development of both a person as well as humanity as a whole.
We think there are few interesting conclusions, which can be drawn from our research.
1. To successfully write the text, which expresses the idea of the author as much as possible silence is required. Especially on the subject, the author wants to cover.
2. Rereading of the notes, texts, work of writing may prompt the author to make new interpretations and revelations.
3. Any text has an implied sense, something we usually call “underlying meaning.” As the rule, it is a hidden objective, thought, idea the author wants to share in a latent way.
4. Reading the texts, which cause discomfort but broadens personal experience of the reader.
We thank all attendees of this laboratory for valuable and creative contribution to the research process.
