As an addendum (I don't want to lengthen the above post any further), the above points on visual-motor guidance can be extended to the experiences harvested by meditation. There is a LOT of neural and bodily action going on within our brains, nervous systems, and bodies that is similarly not at all propositional. This functioning isn't directly encountered during travels through the corridors of language and reason, however skillful, and aren't derived products of propositional reason. Yet one can pause to dwell within those streams of activity, which are also part of oneself, part of one's organism, and indeed embody the many strata evolutionary history that lie within each of us. Meditation is one way to so dwell.
