>>96047034>It seems to assume language is a core building block of anything.
I think you're using an overly narrow definition of "language." It might help to point out the Matrix is basically the film version of the Invisibles and that code in the Matrix = language in the Invisibles.
Neo realizing he can see reality's code in the same way he was able to see the Matrix's code is the same concept as how King Mob says "a bullet in the right place is no substitute for the real thing" before killing the archon with the "pop" gun (also to use a more recent example it's the same as Cooper realizing "we live inside a dream" in Twin Peaks: The Return).
Or for more examples, there's Plato's cave allegory where what we think is reality is just the shadows of the more fundamental reality of The Forms, or God's word being the impetus for creation in Genesis with "Let there be light," or Max Tegmark's proposition that the fundamental nature of our universe is mathematics, or the Indra's net idea that everything we think of as reality is conditioned and interdependently arising like countless reflections of reflections in a vast net of co-reflecting jewels, etc.
Also Grant Morrison was obviously influenced a lot by Terence McKenna, so you can just watch one of his talks about the same topic, like this one:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4pQ5uOvVx0
