enigma of the Emergence of Natural Languages, coupled or not with the closely
related problem of their Evolution is perceived today as one of the most
important scientific problems. The purpose of the present study is actually to
outline such a solution to our problem which is epistemologically consonant
with the Big Bang solution of the problem of the Emergence of the Universe}. Such
an outline, however, becomes articulable, understandable, and workable only in
a drastically extended epistemic and scientific oecumene, where known and
habitual approaches to the problem, both theoretical and experimental, become
distant, isolated, even if to some degree still hospitable conceptual and
methodological islands. The guiding light of our inquiry will be Eugene Paul
Wigner's metaphor of ``the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in natural
sciences'', i.e., the steadily evolving before our eyes, since at least XVIIth
century, ``the miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics
for the formulation of the laws of physics''. Kurt Goedel's incompleteness and
undecidability theory will be our guardian discerner against logical fallacies
of otherwise apparently plausible explanations. John Bell's ``unspeakableness''
and the commonplace counterintuitive character of quantum phenomena will be our
encouragers. And the radical novelty of the introduced here and adapted to our
purposes Big Bang epistemological paradigm will be an appropriate, even if
probably shocking response to our equally shocking discovery in the oldest
among well preserved linguistic fossils of perfect mathematical structures
outdoing the best artifactual Assemblers.
