Universal Grammar and Consciousness

Daegene Song


The orthodox interpretation of quantum theory treats the subject and the object on an equal footing. It has been suggested that the cyclical-time process, which resolves self-reference in consciousness, interconnects the observed universe and the mind of the subject. Based on the analogy between cryptography and language, the concept of the common innate structure of language, also known as universal grammar, may be associated with the continuity in consciousness. Extending this connection, Levi-Strauss's proposal on universal culture may be considered as a shared structure of continuity among the consciousness of multiple subjects.
