Each individual has established their own unique mental filtering system for processing millions of bits of data being absorbed through the senses. Our first mental map of the world is constituted of internal images, sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as result of the neurological filtering process.
We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the world. We form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map (sometimes known as Linguistic Representation)
Is the behavioral response that occurs as a result of neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map.
