What do we have to start with?
Observe and Investigate!
That is our foundation to reason on!
This is being presented to show the origin of my awareness of
stricture missing in common textbook presentation. Often conclusions are stated
as if they are observation the structure m
Where, What, How Many, How Much, when and
These questions would be central to the survival of a people and hence the development of language!
Definition - Observe
How to lay a foundation for building the future with knowledge of what we are dealing with? That is the question!
Let us get started with observing. We need operationally defined words. In the first sense, to observe 1 is to have an event registered by one of the five senses (to see, hear, touch, taste, or small).
The purpose is to understand and use communications effectively.
The oldest known cave paintings are just 35,000 years old
Archaeologists in Zambia have uncovered evidence that early humans used paint for aesthetic purposes far earlier than previously thought.
The team found pigments and paint grinding equipment believed to be between 350,000 and 400,000 years old. The oldest pigments previously found were 120,000 years old and the oldest known paintings are just 35,000 years old.
One of the earliest records of communications may be wall painting.

Communications is a body with many organs. We need to organize our understanding of communication. The basic
premises of communications is 1) an idea in one awareness, 2) recorded by that awareness, then 3) transmitter by some mechanism
and 4) received by a second awareness. The type of communications can be pattern or logical and the content of logical can be
qualitative, quantative or algebraic.

The earliest writing The first known examples of writing may have been unearthed at an archaeological dig in Pakistan.
So-called 'plant-like' and 'trident-shaped' markings have been found on fragments of pottery dating back 5500 years.
The first Runic inscriptions that have survived to the modern day dated from around 200 CE. The alphabet
consists of 24 letters, 18 consonants and 6 vowels, as illustrated in the following chart:

Scheme of Indo-European migrations from ca. 4000 to 1000 BC according to the Kurgan hypothesis. The purple area corresponds to the assumed Urheimat (Samara culture, Sredny Stog culture). The red area corresponds to the area which may have been settled by Indo-European-speaking peoples up to ca. 2500 BC; the orange area to 1000 BC.
I feel this misses the truer more complete picture of the past and the motivation for star gazing with all the goofiness that then followed with gods in the shy and astrology. The people tha flourished in the Ukrainian Steps and then sailed down the Don river and the Euphrates to explore the coast lines of the cotenants.Analysis (observations):
If we analyze the data on megalithic structures it is clear that there was an organized culture with sailing skills (in part
from astronomical observations).
There was and Indo-European culture with sailing skills. This culture laid much of the ancient foundation for
alphabet, astronomical science, and mathematics.
Two other object properties were observed and recorded but they are masked because it was done historically and the ratio of two observations gives a single value like the circle and the triangle relationships..
Mathematical constructs of relationships between circular objects have a different ontology than the objects they refer
It is easy for intellectualizing to confuse reality with the abstracted relationships between real parts of reality. This can harm the intuitive reality check!
