Summary/Abstract: The advances in neurosciences provoked the classical concept of both psychology and philosophy. The mind-body problem was redefined again after a number of mental processes have been proven to be functions of the brain. The choice as an action selection operation among many competitive representations of actions, for instance, is executed by the brain as a solution of optimization problem and decision making process. Furthermore, even moral rules and values such as monogamy and altruism have correlates in brain activity and learned local group behavioral practices. The brain-body has become a causal essence, which presupposes moral dilemmas solving. In this theoretical paper is suggested another problem “language-body problem” instead “mind-body problem” as the language is presented as a genius for creation of virtual realities of increasingly higher order to enable the growing human to separate from the others, to individualize himself and to lose his innate ability of empathy. Language is not a communication tool, on the contrary – individualization environment. Only in language virtualities and therefore born pure thinking the human is free and has free choices. Language virtual development is in its infancy and is called to repeat and walk through the whole evolution of the human body and its Rubicons – from the first cell division through the fish stage to the well-known human biology. Reviving the language, literally, we will put in their places all paradoxes and problems in human cultural development – from “lethal competition” and violence to full dedication and altruism – these are all in perfect balance in the human body. To develop this idea, the author offers a completely new scientific research area – biosophy – “biology of language” to study the future life in language genius.
