Come up with a way to transmit not logically isolated aspects, but the whole mental images to another person, which includes all the aspects simultaneously. If we get one, communication will be much faster, meaningful, people will understand each other much better.

Use smell, sound and touch to convey the message

Rather than using mere images and languages based on the script, make use of other sensory inputs to convey the message. Use sound/music, smell and touch sensations to holistically describe what you mean to say. It helps to build a better internal representation and creates a longer-lasting associative memory in the mind of the receiver.

Yes, this works to some extent. Will this take special trainings for speakers? Most of people are not accustomed to do so... Also, is this achievable for abstract concepts? Also, will people understand the author correctly? Each one may have his own associations with the same color, for example... Also, some people may enjoy, and some may disgust taste of strawberry... Will information be passed correctly and precisely or even understandible enough in this case, especially for abstract things?

Mikhail Korsanov Since your main idea is to 'convey' the message without 'describing' all the aspects, non-verbal communication is the best approach IMO. If aptly done, the holistic approach to create an explanation with sound+vision+touch can work, because each variable factors in a synergistic manner. Ther will of course be individual differences of preferences, and like you said, not everyone will appreciate the taste of strawberries; but with the use of large enough dataset and a carefully designed algorithm, at least we can follow the number games and deploy the strategy that works the best among the alternatives. To determine the verity and fidelity of the information passed, I suppose there is no way to find out without actually testing them in real experimental settings. This could be a really cool project for some neuroscience grad student.

Subash Chapagain Yes, but passing over brain parterns may be still better. Well, this is rather a sci-fi so far... You variant sounds more close to reality.

If we measure emotional and brain maps activity when you think a thought, and induce the same state in another person hearing your idea, he may help him/her to understand you better.
