GULF In their underground classroom Gail had available several types of apparatus to record and manipulate light and sound. She commenced throwing groups of figures on a screen, in flashes. Why did you get only the left hand side of the group?
Un- convinced that the drill was useful, he relaxed and played along. Soon he was beginning to grasp a nine-digit array as a single gestalt; Gail reduced the flash time. Samuel Renshaw at the Ohio State University was proving that most people are about one-fifth efficient in using their capacities to see, hear, taste, feel and remember.
His research was swallowed in the morass of communist pseudoscience that obtained after World War III, but, after his death, his findings were preserved underground… …Speedtalk was a structurally different speech from any the race had ever used.
Long before, Ogden and Richards had shown that eight hundred and fifty words were sufficient vocabulary to express anything that could be expressed by "normal" human vocabularies, with the aid of a handful of special words — a hundred odd — for each special field, such as horse racing or ballistics.
About the same time phoneticians had analyzed all human tongues into about a hundred-odd sounds, represented by the letters of a general phonetic alphabet. On these two propositions Speedtalk was based. To be sure, the phonetic alphabet was much less in number than the words in Basic English.
But the letters representing sound in the phonetic alphabet were each capable of variation several different ways — length, stress, pitch, rising, falling. The more trained an ear was the larger the number of possible variations; there was no limit to variations, but, without much refinement of accepted phonetic practice, it was possible to establish a one-to-one relationship with Basic English so that one phonetic symbol was equivalent to an entire word in a "normal" language, one Speedtalk word was equal to an entire sentence.
The language consequently was learned by letter units rather than by word units — but each word was spoken and listened to as a single structured gestalt.
But Speedtalk was not "shorthand" Basic English. One can think logically in English only by extreme effort so bad it is as a mental tool. For example, the verb "to be" in English has twenty-one distinct meanings, every single one of which is false-to-fact.
A symbolic structure, invented instead of accepted without question, can be made similar in structure to the real world to which it refers.
The structure of Speedtalk did not contain the hidden errors of English; it was structured as much like the real world as the New Men could make it. For example, it did not contain the unreal distinction between nouns and verbs found in most other languages. The world — the continuum known to science and including all human activity — does not contain "noun things" and "verb things"; it contains space-time events and relationships between them.
The advantage for achieving truth, or something more nearly like truth, was similar to the advantage of keeping account books in Arabic numerals rather than Roman.
Compare the pellucid Boolean logic with the obscurities of the Aristotelian logic it supplanted.
Paradoxes are verbal, do not exist in the real world — and Speedtalk did not have such built into it.Sep 14, · In my long, long experience as both a scientist and an active skeptic, I have seen people believe in a lot of seriously, um, odd stuff.
In many cases, it doesn’t matter how overwhelmingly the. If you have any brains at all you are very careful when it comes to sending your money to people who you’ve never met and have no idea if they are legit.
The “proofs” all came afterwards (and may still be a clever ruse), so it’s just natural to question any posters identity.
