"People regard the dictionary as this sacred book in which they have 100% faith.
They don't even think of a human agency behind it."

WORD



Chinese charater for symbol language

"Words are things, and a small drop of ink,
falling like dew, upon the thought produces
that which makes thousand, perhaps,
millions of humans think."

Siddhartha Gautama

b

"Words, particularly nouns, force an infinity of unique objects and processes into a finite number of categories. Words deny the uniqueness of each moment and each experience, reducing it to a "this" or a "that". They grant us the power to manipulate and control (with logic) the things they refer to, but at the price of immediacy. Something is lost, the essence of a thing. By generalizing particulars into categories, words render invisible the differences among them. By labeling both A and B a tree, and conditioning ourselves to that label, we become blind to the differences between A and B. The label affects our perception of reality and the way we interact with it." - Charles Eisenstein

"Rhetoric can create its own reality."

"A word calls up echoes,
feelings intertwined with thoughts,
reasons mingled with irrationality,
motives that lead nowhere,
and uncoordinated urges."
- Jacques Ellul

Word is defined as:

news

rumors

promise

signal; order; command; direction

assurance or promise; sworn intention

verbal signal; password or watchword

verbal unit of a language that a native speakers can identify


Brief remark of observation; an expression; a phrase, clause, or short sentence.

The written or printed character, or combination of characters; symbolic expression of an object or concept.

Used euphemistically in combination with the initial letter of a term that is considered offensive or taboo or that one does not want to utter.

Language considered as implying the faith or authority of concepts, ideas and realizations who utters vocal sound affirming a declaration or promise of truth.

A sound or a combination of sounds, or its representation in writing or printing, that symbolizes and communicates a meaning and may consist of a single morpheme or of a combination of morphemes.

A fundamental unit of storage in a computer. The size of a word in a particular computer architecture is one of its chief distinguishing characteristics. The size of a word is usually the same as the width of the computer's data bus so it is possible to read or write a word in a single operation. An instruction is usually one or more words long and a word can be used to hold a whole number of characters. These days, this nearly always means a whole number of bytes (eight bits), most often 32 or 64 bits. In the past when six bit character sets were used, a word might be a multiple of six bits, e.g. 24 bits (four characters) in the ICL 1900 series.



labels

"What labels me, negates me."
Søren Kierkegaard

"Words realize nothing, verify nothing to you, unless you have suffered in your own person the thing which the words try to describe. A powerful agent is the right word: it lights the reader's way and makes it plain; a close approximation to it will answer, and much traveling is done in a well-enough fashion by its help, but we do not welcome it and applaud it and rejoice in it as we do when the right one blazes out on us. Whenever we come upon one of those intensely right words in a book or a newspaper the resulting effect is physical as well as spiritual, and electrically prompt: it tingles exquisitely around through the walls of the mouth and tastes as tart and crisp and good as the autumn-butter that creams the sumac-berry." -Mark Twain

The act of labeling, rather than negating, is an act of containment.
We give a name or a label to everything for identification of characteristics.

The referent, or "real object," being represented by a linguistic symbol exists only in a conceptual structure held by the mind of the individual envisioning the referent.

Referents that have physical mirrors in reality are completely different animals than referents that are found only in the imaginative conceptual structures of human minds and thus those referents have often been taken to be meaningless.

But what if parallel imaginative conceptual structures also exist in other minds?

The truth is they do.

These referents exist in every mind. Look closely and the parallels become apparent as they are a reflection of the exterior world seen through the lens of uniquely disparate human eyes . Complex codes of internally replayed behavior are acted out in a manner similar to that in which scripts are run in a browser window.

These parallel imaginative conceptual structures were named by Carl Jung as "ground" ideas or archetypical concepts shared universally by human beings.

As people move through the stages of life, and although they all have unique experiences, common conceptual structure surface with regularity.

These common conceptual structures, archetypes, include epiphanies brought forth through living experiences that propagate altered states of consciousness uniquely distinct and divergent from all previous states encountered.

It is here that we meet mystery !


Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's
Theory of Language Learning

In world's languages, scientists discover
shared links between sound and meaning



"Speech is civilization itself. The word, even the most contradictory word, preserves contact - it is silence which isolates." - Thomas Mann


lost in translation

translate
1. to turn from one language into another.
2. to change the form, condition, nature, etc., of; transform; convert.
3. to explain in terms that can be more easily understood; interpret.

"Words by nature of their abstraction are inexact, a degree removed from the particular objects, processes, and feelings to which they refer, leaving us therefore to infer what the other person really meant, and opening the way for misunderstanding. " - Charles Eisenstein

Translation from one language to another is the action of interpretation of the meaning of a text, and subsequent production of an equivalent text that attempts to communicate the same message as the original language.

Translation must take into account constraints that include context, the rules of grammar of the two languages, writing conventions, idioms and slang. Many times idioms and slang, especially that used by social sub-cultures such as hippies, goths, punks, preppies, hoods, gang-bangers, etcetera is misinterpreted. Technical terms may be misinterpreted as well if the translator is not versed in the technical jargon of the profession.

A common misconception is that there exists a simple word-for-word correspondence between any two languages, and that translation is a straightforward mechanical process. A word-for-word translation does not take into account context, grammar, conventions, idioms and slang.

Translators, in the course of their work, have shaped the very languages into which they have translated.

Translators have acted as bridges for conveying knowledge and ideas between cultures and civilizations.

Translators do not always accurately interpret the text.

Fidelity pertains to the extent to which a translation accurately renders the meaning of the source text, without adding to or subtracting from it, without intensifying or weakening any part of the meaning, and otherwise without distorting it.

Transparency pertains to the extent to which a translation appears to a native speaker of the target language to have originally been written in that language, and conforms to the language's grammatical, syntactic and idiomatic conventions.

Current Western academic translation practices claim to incorporate the concepts of "fidelity" and "transparency" foremost but translators do step beyond the bounds of translation proper into the realm of adaptation, with or without conscious effort.

phonetics

Phonology is the study of speech sounds and patterns.

Phonology has two children, Phonetics and Phonemics.



Phonetics, the study of speech sounds, has three children - Articulation, Auditory and Acoustic.

Articulation : the examination and analysis of way in which the different structures of the vocal tract, the articulators (tongue, lips, jaw, palate, teeth etc.) interact to create the specific speech sounds in human speech organs that create rhetoric.

Auditory : the examination and analysis of the acquisition and comprehension or the perception of phonetic sounds of words of a language through hearing.

Acoustic : the examination and analysis of the physical characteristics of speech sounds such as color, loudness, amplitude, frequency, aroma, emotion, the mean squared amplitude of the waveform, its duration, its fundamental frequency, its frequency spectrum, and the relationship of these properties to other branches of phonetics (e.g. articulatory or auditory phonetics), and to abstract linguistic concepts like phoneme , phrases, utterances, exclamations, hails and applause.

Phonemics classifies and analyzes interrelationship of parts of speech while deliberately inspecting the evolutionary environmental changes of the phonemes of a language - the way sounds are arranged in languages helps you hear what sounds are important in that language. The unit of analysis for phonemics is called phonemes. "A phoneme is a sound that functions to distinguish one word from another in a language." Examples: Tie Die, Bass Mass, Went Bent, But Nut Hut, Feel Eel Peel, Cool Pool Fool, Woulda Shoulda Coulda

Morphology is the identification, analysis and description of the structure of a given language's morphemes and other linguistic units, such as words, affixes, parts of speech, intonation/stress, or implied context (words in a lexicon are the subject matter of lexicology). Morphological typology represents a method for classifying languages according to the ways by which morphemes are used in a language -from the analytic that use only isolated morphemes, through the agglutinative ("stuck-together") and fusional languages that use bound morphemes (affixes), up to the polysynthetic, which compress lots of separate morphemes into single words. Or in other words the study of how a language evolves or morphs as it rides the Rainbow Spiral of Golden Time.

Syntax is the consideration of language patterns, speech structures and phrasal hierarchies which dictate how words are combined to form sentences. Syntax attempts to formally describe how structural relations between elements (lexical items/words and operators) in a sentence contribute to its interpretation. Using principles of formal logical analysis Syntacticians attempt to represent accurately the proper hierarchical relationship of elements which is crucial to the correct interpretation, equivalent to native speaker intuition, of a given language.

Where syntax is concerned with the formal structure of sentences, semantics deals with the actual meaning of words and sentences.

Semantics is the study of intension, that is, the intrinsic meanings of words and phrases. Much of the work in the field of philosophy of language is concerned with the relation between meanings and the world, and this concern cross-cuts formal semantics in several ways. For example, both philosophers of language and semanticists make use of propositional, predicate and modal logics to express their ideas about word meaning.

Pragmatics is concerned with the role of context in the interpretation of meaning.

A researcher interested in language comprehension may study word recognition during reading to examine the processes involved in the extraction of orthographic, morphological, phonological, and semantic information from patterns in printed text.

A researcher interested in language production might study how words are prepared to be spoken starting from the conceptual or semantic level.




Rainbow Spiral Dynamics©

"The categorizations that are inherent in the grammar and lexicon
of our language form a preexisting set of categories of analysis
that we bring as a basic framework to everything we do."
- John M. Ellis, Language, Thought and Logic

"Consisting of symbols that are connected only arbitrarily to the objects, attributes, and processes they name, language is indeed a separate human realm, a human-created map or representation of reality. Language has evolved toward an infinite regression of symbols, words defined in terms of each other, that distances us from reality. Abstracted too many levels from its source, language maroons us in a factitious fantasy world, an unconscious story that turns us into its victims." - Charles Eisenstein


rainbow bridge


"We have the opportunity to build a Rainbow bridge into the Golden Age. But to do this, we must do it together with all the colors of the Rainbow, with all the peoples, all the beings of the world. We who are alive on Earth today are the Rainbow Warriors who face the challenge of building this bridge." -- Brooke Medicine Eagle, Daughter of the Rainbow, Crow and Lakota

Rainbow Spiral Dynamics© argues that human nature is flexible and that humans are able, when forced by living conditions, to adapt to their environment by constructing new, more complex, conceptual models of the world that allow them to handle the complexity of new events and situations . Each new conceptual model transcends and includes all previous models. These conceptual models are organized around so-called vMemes: systems of core values or collective intelligences, applicable to both individuals, sub groups and entire social cultures.

In Rainbow Spiral Dynamics©, the term vMeme refers to a core value system, acting as an organizing principle, which expresses itself through memes (self-propagating ideas, habits, or cultural practices). The prepended and superscripted letter v indicates these are not fundamental memes but value systems which include them. Each individual/sub clique/social culture embodies a mixture of the value patterns, with varying degrees of intensity in each set of values. Rainbow Spiral Dynamics© realizes that there are infinite stages of progress and regression over linear time dependent upon the life circumstances of the individual/sub clique/social culture, which are constantly in flux.

Attaining higher stages of development is not synonymous with attaining a defined values system but rather a flexible moral values system of least harm in sync with the evolving aspects of reality. All stages of intellectual development co-exist in reality, therefore a social cultural vMeme may, at any stage of development, lead to undesirable outcomes with respect to the health of the human and social environment. All new vMeme systems are built on adaptations of previous levels and seek to solve problems created by living in those earlier ways.

First tier vMeme levels are focused on different themes for existence, and include almost all of the worldviews, cultures, and mental attitudes up to today. Rainbow Spiral Dynamics© works toward vMeme perspective convergence onto the Golden Path which is the vMeme term for all multidimensional perspective aspects of the Golden Rule also know as the Rule of Reciprocity.

Rainbow Spiral Dynamics© does explicitly define a category of people spiraling up from from all races, all walks of life, all religious faiths, all tribal elements, all academic persuasions, all ideological backgrounds labeled "Spiral Wizards" who have attained equilibrium around the "higher level" vMeme of the Golden Path.

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 created 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 Life - 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 Life 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 corporate 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.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
