A Mobile Hypothesis of Neural Networks for Spinal Reflex and Linguistic Processing (Digital Linguistics)

Digital Linguistics (DL) is an interdisciplinary study that identifies human language as a digital evolution of mammal analog vocal sign communications, founded on the vertebrate spinal sign reflex mechanism. The evolutionary process of linguistic humans and the in-brain mechanism for linguistic phenomena are the biggest enigma in human history. There is not a single hypothesis with a detailed location/timing or cellular/molecular level explanation. A comprehensive academic boycott against South Africa (1960s-1990s) gave rise to international academics overlooking a plethora of modern human archaeological sites and artefacts in that country, and the sensor-motor synaptic connection hypothesis on the neocortex for linguistic circuit hides the true mechanism. Pavlov [1927] had observed counter-evidence for the cortical synaptic connection hypothesis for conditioned reflexes. Although he did not report it like that in his lectures, he expressed his expectation to be corrected by subsequent generations. DL hypothesized inside the ventricular system immune cell networks for linguistic processing and mechanism of meaning. There are B-lymphocytes floating inside Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF), which function as conceptual devices and network with epitope terminals of CSF-contacting neurons (CSF-CN) on the ventricle wall and of Microglia on the neocortex. Lymphocytes are evolved neurons which do not require fixed synaptic connections for networking, but they network in a mobile-ad-hoc manner with antigen/antibody terminals on the membrane surface. A mobile hypothesis of distributed and autonomous mobile neural networks fulfills the requirements for linguistic processing and intelligence. As sign reflex is involuntary and an ego-centric reflex mechanism, linguistic humans have to overcome its restrictions to enhance our linguistic ability and intelligence.
