Natural language versus mentalese

Natural languages are sequential, we can only say or write one word at a time.  Language of thought (mentalese) is, at least in part, parallel, non-sequential.  The brain is a parallel distributed processor.  Many concepts are activating one another across the brain simultaneously.  Humans must teach one another sequentially, they are using natural language.  Robots could transfer data to one another in parallel.
