Branched Communication

You often get to a point in a conversation where you know it could head off in more than one direction and that keeping the conversation centered on a single point within the boundaries of grammar is stifling the array of ideas that ought to be expressed. However, you know that if you weren't stifled by the limits of what you could say that you'd branch off into an infinity of potentialities and that you'd thus limit what you have to say. Or you want to start with more than one thing to say but the things you have to say could later branch together into a single topic. This is why we should learn to communicate through webs of thought, editing what we have to say into basic ideas that branch off from each other. The only problem is that we as human beings are, should I say 'mono-linguistic'? We're only able to say and pay attention to one thing at a time, for the most part. We sure can't write with two hands.

So I propose two things. First I propose that branch language is the future of language. To elaborate on this, I don't just mean written language but also visual media like graphic media like photos, graphic novels, and film.

However, the inability of the human being to focus on more than one thing at a time means that a new being will have to emerge. Thus I propose that a new artificial intelligence will emerge that's able to think and communicate(if there's more than one of them) in branched language and thus will take over the role of human beings as the most intelligent lifeform on Earth.

If I ever find a program that can do it, I'll create knowledge webs in order to express my ideas on various subjects and thus utilize branched communication.
