How we allow our thoughts to narrate the inner voices we carry, matters in how we see ourselves. The proper stories we tell ourselves; what words we choose when describing an incident we were involved in; even the tone of the voices heard within the inner, insular world of our own thoughts — they are important in formulating who we are, what we believe, and what the future holds for us. The correspondence theory of language is now an antiquated, outdated theory of language.
When Bertrand Russell stated with a mischievous smile that the “ present King of France is bald” — he knew at the outset that there was no “present King of France” and, moreover, that “baldness” cannot be attributed to a non-existent royal entity; and yet, we fully comprehend the statement. By comprehension, we admit to its meaningfulness, and even its coherence.
But how can a nonsensical statement having both meaning and coherence? That is the point — that meaning and coherence have nothing to do, necessarily, with existence in the objective universe. Then, one might query, what is so important about the stories we carry within our heads if they have no correspondence to the objective world? Not only is it important, but moreover, it is significant; for, in the end, the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, which we carry within ourselves, provide the inner psyche to possess the confidence and strength to maneuver through the world we must occupy for the limited time we have in this world.
