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 many
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 different concept.
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

impossible to express in
the language of another
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 element 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:
how do children acquire language
(2) how do people process and comprehend
language (language comprehension)?
(3) how do people produce language
(4) how do adults acquire a new language (second
Psycholinguistics focuses on how the brain
processes speech sounds and

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

nonverbal suggestion to get off, before you "wake up" and realize it is not

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

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.

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 gnostic mystery 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."

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 coöperation. Coöperation
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.
