"It is only because the word is mobile, because it
flies from one thing to another, that the intellect was sure to take it, sooner or
later, on the wing, while it was not settled on anything, and apply it to an
object which is not a thing and which, concealed till then, awaited the coming
of the word to pass from darkness to light." - Henri Bergson"The nature of oratory is such that there has always been a
tendency among politicians and clergymen to over-simplify complex issues. From
a pulpit or a platform even the most conscientious of speakers finds it very
difficult to tell the whole truth." -
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
weak linguistic relativity hypothesisThe weak linguistic relativity hypothesis claims that a social
culture's language has a significant impact on how the members of the social
culture perceive reality.
For example, concepts or ideas that are
prevalent in the social culture may be stated in concise ways (using one or a
few words), whereas concepts or ideas
that are foreign to the social culture are more difficult to express (requiring
Similarly, separate words may exist to express
distinctions considered important in that social culture, or distinctions
concerning matters the social culture considers important, whereas the same
word may serve to refer to what is in a different social culture considered a
Franz Boas, who lived among Baffin islanders and
learned their language, did in fact take account of the polysynthetic nature of
Inuit language and included "only words representing meaningful distinctions"
in his account.
Three distinct word roots with the meaning "snow" are
reconstructed for the Proto-Eskimo language *qaniɣ 'falling snow',
*aniɣu 'fallen snow', and *apun 'snow on the ground'. These three stems
are found in all Inuit languages and dialects-except for West Greenlandic,
which lacks *aniɣu.
Studies of the Sami languages of Norway, Sweden
and Finland, conclude that the languages have anywhere from 180 snow- and
ice-related words and as many as 300 different words for types of snow, tracks
in snow, and conditions of the use of snow.
strong linguistic relativity hypothesis
The strong linguistic relativity hypothesis claims that a
social culture's language can express concepts unique to that social culture that
are impossible to express in the language of another social culture.
This hypothesis has few adherents.
It is generally argued that
while some concepts may be easier to express in some languages than others, any
concept can be expressed in any language with a sufficiently large vocabulary
(i.e. any language used as a first language by human beings, as opposed to e.g.
trade jargons containing a very limited vocabulary), possibly in conjunction
with suitable extralinguistic information.
For example, the language of
a social culture that does not know of snow may not have a word for snow, but
one could still say in it something like "cold ash that descends from the sky
and blankets the Earth turning water to stone."
Indeed, when any social
culture comes into significant contact with a different social culture, it
invariably borrows words from that social culture's language to express
concepts alien to it, or creates new words with native origins to refer to the
"Sin and compassion and fear are just sounds that
people who never sinned nor loved nor feared have for what they never had and
cannot have until they forget the words."- William FaulknerPsycholinguistics or psychology of language is the study of the
psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use,
comprehend and produce language.
Intuitively identified philosophically
as an essential underlying component psycholinguistics now makes use of
biology, neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, and information theory
to study how the brain processes language.
Psycholinguistics covers the cognitive processes that make
it possible to generate an understandable message out of vocabulary and
grammatical structures, as well as the
processes that make it
possible to understand utterances, words, text, etc.
psycholinguistics studies children's ability to learn language.
Psycholinguistics, an interdisciplinary field, is studied by
researchers from a variety of different backgrounds, such as psychology,
cognitive science, linguistics, and speech and language pathology.
Psycholinguistics study many different topics, but these topics can
generally be divided into answering the following questions:
do children acquire language (language acquisition)?
how do people process and
comprehend language (language comprehension)?
(3) how do people produce
language (language production)?
(4) how do adults acquire a new language
(second language acquisition)?
Psycholinguistics focuses on how the
brain processes speech sounds and
"The only thing you need
to do to break a negative hypnotic spell that has been cast on you is begin to
think rationally, to begin to think
critically. And if you decide that you choose this message as one that's
good for you, by all means sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. But, if you
decide that this is not something you want to have in your life, just simply
analyze it, criticise it, ridicule it, and say "Hey, that's not how the world
works." And you'll have protected your mind from taking on board something
which you really don't need." - Power of Conversational Hypnosis,
Clifford Mee and Igor Ledochowski
Most people are
fall into a trance every day of
their lives in a common, every day occurrence.
This has commonly
been termed 'daydreaming'.
A very basic example is when you are driving
a car while in deep thought, and you suddenly realize you are much further down
the road than you thought with no memory of driving the distance.
Another example, is when you are on an elevator watching the numbers
change and go into a trance,
and when everyone else gets off, you take that as a nonverbal suggestion to get
off, before you "wake up" and realize it is not your floor.
elevator example is an example of mass hypnosis, where the close rapport with
the hypnotist is not necessary, because many people are both
hypnotized partly by whatever is causing
the trance, and partly by the
fact that you are being "paced" or also hypnotized by everyone else in the
elevator doing the exact same thing as you.
The reason you cry from reading a sad book or laugh at a
clever allegory simply by reading ink on paper is because of the mind's
interaction with that information, which is also a hypnotic process.
Hypnosis is "an altered state
of hyper-suggestibility brought about in an individual by a combination of
relaxation, fixation of attention, and suggestion."
Hypnosis "bypasses critical thinking and sets up acceptable
Critical thinking acts as
a filter, allowing rational
logical judgements to determine the truthfulness of the thoughts allowed to
pass into the subconscious mind - a non-rational computer-like system which
accepts everything as absolute truth.

states as hypnotic phenomena.

in the last 20 years that our judgements and ability to
judge neutral information is contaminated - affected - by
emotional values, by
affective influences." - Moshe
While the calculating mind is distracted
a state of hyper
suggestibility engages the subconscious mind while it
stands as the dominant player.
It happens while reading, listening
to music, and when listening
to a speaker.
We are talking about "transformational linguistics" -
language that literally changes
who you are at your deepest levels, your deepest passions, drives, and
emotions while you are completely unaware.

Neurolinguistics is closely related to the field of
psycholinguistics, which seeks to elucidate the cognitive mechanisms of
language by employing the traditional
psychology; today, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic theories often
inform one another, and there is much collaboration between the two
Theoretical linguistics is the branch of linguistics that is most
concerned with developing models of linguistic knowledge.
The fields that are generally considered the core of
theoretical linguistics are syntax,
phonetics often informs phonology, it is
often excluded from the purview of theoretical linguistics, along with
psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics.
Theoretical linguistics also
involves the search for an explanation of linguistic universals, that is,
properties all languages have in common.
In general, theoretical
linguists propose models to explain the structure of language and how language
information is organized, psycholinguists propose models and algorithms to
explain how language functions.
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point
of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined precipitously
over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and
more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
