Res extensa is the natural physical and material world, which we will sometimes refer to as the physiospehre and res linguistica is the world of language, symbols, semantics, syntax, metaphors, concepts, thoughts, ideas, consciousness, culture, and the human mind, which Schumann (2003b) refers to as the symbolospehre.
Rescogitans is replaced with res linguistica, which like rescogitans incorporates the human mind and all its thought and communication processes but does not include God.
Res extensa or the physiosphere and res linguistica or the symbolosphere provide complementary descriptions of cognitive processes and that unless both are used to analyze or understand phenomena one obtains a distorted picture of reality.
