Comment on Is Language a Window into Human Nature?

Brilliant Spaceweaver, thank you, for this:
when we do all these, we re-describe our own identity.
for that is the issue i am dealing with, in regard to language.

I was thinking today that the very fact/act of thinking (and doing research) about the coming/existing singularity is changing me and redefining my identity in the process ('en passant' i am not certain i had/have a clearly defined identity to speak of) but as we speak it appears that some aspect/s of the usage of a/the new language does allow a self-metamorphosis (Kafka?) in a process somewhat akin to what Badiou calls 'evental site' (site événementiel).. (the event in this case is the language appropriation and the site is the mind of one..)
