A starting point

Here’s a good starting point for imagining how languages give shape to our imaginations, if I can use the word “languages” as an agent, animate to shape the other imagined thing, “imaginations.”  Volume 4B of the Cultural History of the Book of Mormon orients these insights towards a reading of the Book of Mormon, or various misreadings of terms like “atonement” and so on.

    I’ll have to revisit 4b, but if my memory serves correctly, language affects our imagination because abstract words are typically defined by analogy, etc. and create limitations on what is or can be imagined. (I am probably off, but that is what I remember walking away with).
