comment What is it called to think without language? Are there studies around it?
can't find a reference to the book :(, only books close to that i found is tomassello's "A Natural History of Human Thinking", and "The Recursive Mind: The Origins of Human Language, Thought, and Civilization" by Michael C. Corballis

Indeed ! thanks for the clarifications,, thats right the question im looking for xD ,, " what is the origin of thought?" and not just the origin, but how is it processed !, because as brain is a net, maybe "origin" doesnt make that total sense xD

well, it is true that i "see" images, sounds, i feel emotions, etc, but that alone from my point of view, doesnt do the rationalization ( the logical part ),,,, so, what does the logic? what operate those images, sounds, feelings,,,, hard to explain for me but,,, if u have A, B, and C,, to mix them together you need the operator +, then u have, A+B+C = X,,, so who is that operator (+) if not the language ?

comment Do people prefer to buy items from bigger stores vs. smaller stores?
For me: 2 reasons,,, 1- bigger choice possibilities (therefore more probabilities of having what u are looking for), 2 - The "distance" between u and the "vendor"

yea, but what exacly in sleep / medidation / yoga, make that happen ? imagine you could identify it and reproduce it by just thinking (something like inner procedure activation - dunno if that concept even exists or how its called)

You say sleep is something that cant be kicked, because it causes severely reduced performance, PTSD, hallucinations, psychosis, etc, BUT, what i think is that, obviously those effects are not direclty caused by Sleep, Sleep may reproduce some kind of logical procedures over all the brain like reindexing memory, "garbage collection", SO, in fact, there might be some other way to reproduce those logic procedures no ?
