Semanticists like Alfred Korzybski and Benajamin Whorf warned that the Indo-European languages trap us in a fragmented model of life. They disregard relationship. By their subject-predicate structure, they restrict our thought, forcing us to think of everything in a linear model; terms of simple cause and effect. For this reason it is hard for us to talk about-or even think about-quantum physics, a fourth dimension, or any other notion without clearcut beginnings and endings, up and down, then and now.
Language frames our thought, thereby setting up barriers in comprehension. We cannot fathom a fourth dimension that is not of the linear model.
