Experience Cannot be Transformed into Concepts (words)

The psychological basis for the dual information processing, two selves, theory may originate from what I call the transform. The rational-cognitive (conceptual) system must transform non-conceptual experience, say the subjective experience of greenness or pain, and (forcibly) transform it into words. Of course, no one can ever say anything about any subjective experience so we conspire and agree that associations (It’s natural; It reminds me of my old car) fairly represent it-even when they don’t. Though many rely on their rational/conceptual system our experiential system is truer.
