Language is an elevated form of communication: it supervenes all other forms. With common words for common situations, we can talk about music and paintings, environmental and financial data, and so on. The reverse is difficult; try to use music to communicate about the environment and be understood.
But is language special? Or, for accidental reasons, have we simply not developed alternatives?
The reality instrument is an effort to use category theory and data to communicate information about the universe through sound.
