The Alpha and the Omega
If there's one thing that bugs me, it's people who critique or disparage the CTMU without having read the CTMU ... or in short, trolls and/or dummies.
Here's my response to a CTMU critique on the Facebook CTMU Group page along with an explanatory addendum.
Comment: "No rational mind can conceive of the possibility that language existed prior to human thought. ... It is outrageously absurd for a scientific theory to claim that concepts of time and matter are dependent on the nature of a language."
Response: This is untrue. My mind is fairly rational (some would say very rational), yet I can conceive of a metaformal language that exists "prior to" the emergence of human language, and which defines the nature of space and time.
Remember, language is an algebraic system. If one can imagine a primeval reality with any algebraic (or dually, geometric) structure whatsoever - and without it, all we have is an unbound structural potential with no means of actualization until it configures itself accordingly - then there is no way to rule out linguistic structure and dynamics. In fact, there is no way to do without them, as they are necessities of existence.
On the other hand, if one believes that reality emerged spontaneously from the impenetrable fog of unbound telesis, then emergence cannot occur before there is a channel of emergence. This channel amounts to structure, and it turns out that language is the most primitive and necessary structure of all. No language = no structure.
