By ‘speech-bursting’ I mean a process consisting of:
- A verbal or other trigger that is ‘symbolic’ to the speech-burster
- The ‘meaning’ or ‘meanings’ of the trigger to the speech-burster (neural processes)
- Neuro-endocrine activity; a flood of hormones; etc.
- The sufferer bursts into speech (oftentimes saying little with many words)
I am sure we all are familiar with our own sufferings. The silver lining to this cloud is that by recognizing our own speech-bursting we can gauge our own progress towards the desirable ‘scientific attitude’, in which speech becomes secondary to observation and is under our personal control (not hair-triggered).
