How do deaf people think before they are introduced to sign language? How do children think? Voices are introduced, the same as the "self," by outside factors which point to such things existing. These concepts- voices and "self" exist as channels in the mind through which to interpret information so that it may be transferred to others. If there are no others, the "voices" and "language" for thinking are unnecessary, and the concept of "self" need not exist.
