This talk explores linguistic theory and how it relates to a model of human thought based around spoken language.Inspired in part by recent writing by Douglas Hofstadter, I make the case that the core mechanism of our thinking relates very closely to our ability to make metaphors and categorize experiences. I connect these two concepts to make the case that with a broader vocabulary of metaphors, we can become better problem solvers. Oh, and I dip into category theory a bit as well. :)
