Abstract: Since time immemorial, philosophers and scientists were searching for a
“machine code” of the so-called Mentalese language capable of processing information at
the pre-verbal, pre-expressive level. In this paper I suggest that human languages are only
secondary to the system of primitive extra-linguistic signs which are hardwired in humans
and serve as tools for understanding selves and others; and creating meanings for the
multiplicity of experiences. The combinatorial semantics of the Mentalese may find its
unorthodox expression in the semiotic system of Tarot images, the latter serving as the
”keys” to the encoded proto-mental information. The paper uses some works in systems
theory by Erich Jantsch and Erwin Laszlo and relates Tarot images to the archetypes of the
field of collective unconscious posited by Carl Jung. Our subconscious beliefs, hopes, fears
and desires, of which we may be unaware at the subjective level, do have an objective
compositional structure that may be laid down in front of our eyes in the format of pictorial
semiotics representing the universe of affects, thoughts, and actions. Constructing
imaginative narratives based on the expressive “language” of Tarot images enables us to
anticipate possible consequences and consider a range of future options. The thesis
advanced in this paper is also supported by the concept of informational universe of
contemporary cosmology.
