What if there is no language

What would life be like without the ability to communicate?

But how would life be without communication?

Imagine the following utopia, life without the ability to communicate. Life without the ability to use the senses given to us for communication. Let us assume that the world is still in a kind of original state in which media technology has not yet achieved dominance over all communication channels. And also the human being would not have reached a stage in his development in which he has developed a kind of communication via the senses: de facto there is neither innate nor learned communication. Every creature exists in a separate universe that is isolated from the outside world. Without communication there would be no language, without language there would be no standardized images that arise in the head to describe something. One of them would think “chair” at the sight of a tree, admittedly a little exaggerated. Everyone would have to recreate their own universe over and over again instead of being able to fall back on the already laid foundations of communication. Since extrinsic communication does not exist, humans shape intrinsic communication individually.

But how would the lack of communication affect social life? Would the encounter between two individuals lead to a reaction? If so, what would it look like? Does this encounter have to have been preceded by a kind of self-knowledge of the “I” who is only able to communicate with itself in order to evoke a reaction at all? If the “I” had not yet come to such a knowledge, humans would have to perceive their fellow species as a threat. This would mean that no types of social unions could take place. And somt humanity would die out within a very short time. In practical terms, propagation could only take place “accidentally”. Had there been self-knowledge of the “I”, how would the social interaction then take place? Would humans come together in groups out of sheer instinct? Or would he stay to himself? Almost anything would be conceivable here.

For example, that despite self-awareness, other people would be perceived as a threat. For this reason, nature would then be the only harmless reference point. Then nature would also be the only possible emotional reference point. The only intrinsically possible communication makes man egotistical. If the "I" can only deal with itself, it will inevitably become selfish. It will only find its emotional balance in nature. As you can see, spinning such a utopia only leads to new questions. Multiple premises would have to be set precisely in order to construct such a conceptual structure in a self-contained manner. However, this would by far exceed the scope of such a work, for this reason I content myself with a compilation of the trains of thought and questions presented to me. And I hope to be able to start a lively discussion with him.
