Julian Jaynes Quotes: And As You Read You Are Not Conscious Of

And As You Read, You Are Not Conscious Of The Letters Or Even Of The Words Or Even Of The Syntax Or The Sentences And Punctuation, But Only Of Their Meaning. As You Listen To An Address, Phonemes Disappear Into Words And Words Into Sentences And Sentences Disappear Into What They Are Trying To Say, Into Meaning. To Be Conscious Of The Elements Of Speech Is To Destroy The Intention Of The Speech.
