Calibrare si Acuitate

Oameni si Oameni.

Uneori cand cand nu ii intelegi pe unii, parerea mea e ca nu ai lucrat suficient muschiul senzorial : “incerci”  sa calibrezi fara sa-ti fi dezvoltat suficient acuitatea senzoriala pe toate canalele de input, Vizual Auditiv, Kinstezic, Oolfactiv Gustativ + Vestibular .

Progressive vs. Conservative language

I got tired of cursing the newspaper every morning. I got tired of seeing what was going wrong and not being able to do anything about it.George Lakoff - UC Berkeley professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics

Limbajul (verbal si non verbal) relfecta procesele cognitive, structura de valori a celui ce transmite si, cu precizie, codurile interne prin care isi reprezinta realitatea.

Iar prin limbaj acceptat implicit sau creat artificial in discursul public, sustinut de transa de autoritate , factorii de decizie (policymakers, corporate, cultura, social) pot construi structuri  si procese cognitive noi, pot schimba valori si credinte si chiar pot modifica perceptii.

Ecologic, Sustenabil, Evolutiv? Depinde de cultura fiecarui decident.

Human Excellence Reverse Engineering = NLP

Dupa multe floricele, pasarele si poezii despre om, incarcate cu sentimente si emotii, interpretari si evaluari “subiectiv-statistice”, prin care unii cred vor evolua in secolul 21 (unde oare?), va propun sa ne intoarcem cu picioarele pe sol si mintea in realitatea perceputa si sa invatam sa decodam prin reverse engineering, Excelenta Umana = Hacking & Decoding Human Excellence.
In scoala, in organizatii, in business si in viata.
Asta face NLP. Practic. Ecologic. Sustenabil.
Restul, cu regret, raman simple… “pareri”.

Pragmatics

Language and Manipulation

” One of the main theses is that our use of language cements the dominant interests of our society, helping to oppress a large segment of the population. A key concept here is that of linguistic manipulation. I compare language to a screen or a veil, whose role it is to keep life’s ugly reality out of our conscious perimeter. As long as we don’t notice the presence of the screen or the veil, we are being manipulated. One should keep in mind, however, that it is not language itself, or its use as such that does the oppression. The true oppressor is society, or more precisely: the way it organizes itself. “- Jacob L. Mey, “Whose Language”

…mass-oriented use of language not necessarily, or even at all, represents the masses’ interests, but rather those of a small circle of influential people, the ‘mass moguls’ and their friends in politics and business. Such use of language identifies with the interests of the ruling classes rather than with those of the ruled masses; it is always manipulative.”Jacob L. Mey, “Whose Language”.

…”… le discours de la science, en tant qu’il se recommanderait de l’objectivité, de la neutralité, de la grisaille, voire du genre sulpicien, est tout aussi malhonnête, aussi noir d’intentions que n’importe quelle autre rhétorique.” Jacques Lacan, ‘La métaphore du sujet’

Constructal Law

Wealth means movement today, not some gold hidden in a cave and forgotten. This view places the concept of “wealth” in physics. A country is wealthy (developed, advanced) because it moves more material and people than the underdeveloped. Fuel that flows (extracted, sold, burned) is wealth , because it sustains the movement of people and goods, in accord with the constructal-law tendency to morph to move more easily. Fuel saved in the ground is not wealth, because it does not create movement. Likewise, money that is being spent (to drive the flow of fuel, which generates movement) is wealth; money that is hoarded (not spent) is not wealth.Adrian Bejan PhD. -The Constructal Law in Nature and Society
