Forgive me if this is too simplistic, as I have enjoyed the eloquent
investigations on this topic... but the reason art exists in my mind
(visual, aural, movement, film) is because what is being expressed cannot
be adequately addressed in word language. I equate the type of mind/brain
activity used in creative works (that are not verbal) to dreams. The
memory of dreams can evaporate when words are used to describe them,
even to ourselves. I think there are many other ways of "thinking"
such as in sports and dance that are not at all verbal.
