devoted conscious is godlike

"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 Revisited

linguistic relativity hypothesis

weak linguistic relativity hypothesis

The 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 words.)

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 several different concepts.

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 foreign concepts.

psycholinguistics

"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 Faulkner

Psycholinguistics 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. Developmental 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:

(1) how do children acquire language (language acquisition)?;
(2) how do people process and comprehend language (language comprehension)?;
(3) how do people produce language (language production)?; and
(4) how do adults acquire a new language (second language acquisition)?

Psycholinguistics focuses on how the brain processes speech sounds and language patterns.

transformational linguistics


"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." - The Power of Conversational Hypnosis, Clifford Mee and Igor Ledochowski, re the section labeled "The Dark Side of Hypnosis."

Real "hypnosis" explained.

Most people are hypnotized and fall into a trance every day of their lives in a common, every day occurrence.

This has 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 along with no memory of driving the whole distance.

Another example, is when you are on an elevator watching the numbers change and go into 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.

This 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.

First, hypnosis, is "a particular altered state of hyper-suggestibility brought about in an individual by a combination of relaxation, fixation of attention, and suggestion."

Second, hypnosis is also "bypassing the critical factor and setting up acceptable selective thinking." The "critical factor" is the conscious part of the brain that you think with that has the ability to make rational logical judgements about what information is received. The critical factor acts as a filter, determining what can pass into the subconscious mind which is a non-rational computer-like system which accepts everything in it as absolute truth. That is why sidelining it is so dangerous.

When waiting for buses and trains, reading or listening, or even being involved in strenuous physical exercise, it's quite normal to become immersed in the activity and go into a trance state, removed from any other irrelevant stimuli.

These states are so common and familiar that most people do not consciously recognize them as hypnotic phenomena but what has happened is they have become so immersed in the conscious thought stream they have dissociated.

The subconscious mind, occuring below the level of conscious awareness, includes the functioning of the dominant hemisphere of the brain as well as the functioning of the non-dominant hemisphere.

Trance induction has three dimensions to compare with language patterns.

1. Pacing and distraction of the dominant (language) hemisphere;

2. Utilization of the dominant hemisphere language processing which occurs below the level of awareness;

3. Accessing of the non-dominant hemisphere;

This three part process is extremely important.

Essentially, hypnosis is an altered and common state of mind involving intense focus, sidelining or dissociation of the rational critical thinking, and the state of hyper-suggestibility brought about while the subconscious mind is the dominant player.

It happens while reading, listening to music, and even while hearing a great 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.



neuroliguistics

neurolinguistics

Neurolinguistics is closely related to the field of psycholinguistics, which seeks to elucidate the cognitive mechanisms of language by employing the traditional techniques of experimental psychology; today, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic theories often inform one another, and there is much collaboration between the two fields.




theoretical linguistics

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, phonology, morphology, and semantics. Although 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 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 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 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.
