There is an intrinsic connection between symbols, thoughts and knowledge
As we all know, linguistic symbols are the means of understanding and the way to acquire knowledge. When language and thought are two, symbols and understanding become difficult to break down. For the inheritance of the knowledge tradition, it started with language learning. However, language symbols are always accompanied by other types of symbols, whether they are text symbols or image symbols. Corresponding to the two basic sensory ways of listening and visualizing, oral and hand-drawn become positive symbolic expressions, which are the basic modalities that have been used up to now. Modality and sensation not only correspond, but also combine with each other. For the sake of hearing, the function of the mouth was born. Without listening, it is impossible to say it, but listening to it is different from saying that listening itself cannot constitute the production of language. The value of hand-painting was born for visual observation. No one can talk about hand-painting without eyesight, but the visual itself cannot produce any words or pictures. The result of the mouth is the language, and the result of hand-painting is text or other image symbols.
Whether it is ear or sight, it is a state. Whether it is oral or hand-painted, it is an action. State and action form the basic premise of various symbols, including linguistic symbols. Use any kind of symbol, including both the acceptance and inheritance of the established state, and the application behavior for the symbol. The state and action of the symbol, corresponding to the bearing and innovation of knowledge, also indicates that any symbolic member can achieve the application of symbols, the absorption of knowledge and the development of itself only if it has both state and action. Symbols, thoughts, and knowledge have intrinsic connections, leaving symbols, unable to realize the operation of ideas, and can not talk about the spread of knowledge. The regular features and symbols of thought and knowledge, especially with linguistic symbols, have deep isomorphic relationships and are inseparable from each other. It can be said that in the two dimensions of state and action, symbols, thoughts, and knowledge are drawn equal. (via Journal of Social Sciences Click "Learn More" for full text)xx
