I think that's what subvocalisation is!
After reading your reply, I triple-checked the definition on Google. My first understanding of it was that it meant reading while verbalizing the words aloud. So I guess I subvocalise.
I guess we all assume everybody thinks the same way we do...
Hahahaha, yeah! It's quite fascinating indeed and at the same time this made my mind get blank right now... so much to say about this and I don't know where to start. First off, some concepts and points of view can be really far from the person's paradigm (can you imagine explaining to the general public in the 50s what a social network is? Or even a smartphone?).
There are 2 books that explore this topic: The Structure Of Scientific Revolutions and Everything We Know Is Wrong!: The Trendspotter's Handbook.
Now for some practical parts: I started reviewing music 2 years ago, and by coming in contact with lots of different genres and artists, my horizons have broadened. I noticed that my exploration was in stints: I'd dive into a specific genre, listen to the discographies, then jump to another genre, so on and so forth. Every 2-3 months, I go and say "oh, there's nothing interesting to listen to, it's all the same". A few weeks later, my perception changes and it begins all over again. Going back to the old records, some elements which I couldn't perceive before jump to my ears.
What other universally human experiences might I be missing out on?
Another blank on my head. A few interpretations could be "what else is there to know out there?", "what is the limit to my perception as a human?", "how would a person living through all these experiences be like?" "what are these universal experiences?" or "is it worth it to have all the universal experiences. even the bad ones?". Since I'm limited to what I can perceive and what I know, one of the actions I can take is question everything. Why is MY world the way it seems to be? What could be different? What are the anomalies I experience? Why is that? Then, seek the answers.
Keep in mind that the changes you'll go through might not be the ones you expected. As I learned more and more about dating and relationships, the less inclined I felt to pursue them. I got my answers, but they moved me to a path I thought I wouldn't take.
