Truth, Attraction and Conspiracy

I have written two new articles for my German blog.

One offers a brief overview over factors influencing the perception of truth, particularly on the basis of suggestions, energetic and psycho-energetic fields and links and Jungian archetypes and their influence on what one thinks or believes, be it consciously or subconsciously. (Interestingly, the term “Glaubenssätze”, which I have used there in German, seems to be astonishingly difficult to translate, see this discussion, if you are interested.) You can read it here, and if you do not understand German, maybe Deepl can help.

True Solutions, Invented Problems and Language Fascism

If you are interested in how gender ideology tries to influence the German language and in my perspective on that, have a look at my respective article in German here. If you do not read German, I could imagine you might understand it with the help of e.g. https://deepl.com. The craziness continues on an even higher level here, but you will only understand the latter article if you know about German grammar.

Connecting my Blogs

As you may know, I like beautiful names and domain names. This may also be one reason for having more than one blog. Yet, for my readers, it might be inconvenient having to follow all of them – so I wondered whether to either create a new one and post in various language there (I thought of http://travels.jewel-of-light.org), an idea that came to me while walking through Perth (speaking of names – one beautiful aspect of Waldorf schools, at least in Australia, is that many children have got very beautiful names). However, for now, it seemed I should keep my separate blogs for English (this one) and German (over here).

Experiences with the IELTS-Test and its Preparation

A. Introduction

Some time ago, I wrote about my experiences with the TOEFL. Today, I can write about my experience with the (academic) IELTS-Test, which I took about three weeks ago.

After a brief introduction, I will give some hints for preparation and point to a few aspects of the test, which should be improved. I would like to encourage everyone who had or will have to take the test to write to those responsible for this.

Malaysian Dictionaries and Grammars Online

It is incredible how many Malaysian dictionaries and grammars you can find online at archive.org. Although they are rather older, I hope they can help (be careful with the spelling in the first one, though), as I have read the Malaysian language has not changed that much.

I will see whether this is true.

On Right Writing

Eckhart Tolle gives some valuable advice for writers on how to tell a biographical story and still have the dimension of consciousness accessible in his first Google+ – Hangout here (in the second half of the hangout) in a reply to Wafa Lababneh.

(The hangout also contains advice on the education of young children and as to Love [also see here].)

Let’s found our own universities

Ich las gerade http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2008-05-11, und ich dachte: “Let’s fund our own universities. Let’s build our own society. And when the old one is gone, ours shall stand.”

[Hintergrund – ehm… I am aware of the language-mix… –: I like studies like that, libraries… haven’t done so for quite a while.

If the universities still governed by so called “rational” people with a limited perceptiveness for what truly IS cannot give us what we need, why not found our own? It has already started, in the U.S., in Australia, too (thinking about the Endeavour College of Natural Health). In the end, it is in our hands, and if we just live as we ought to, we will have the new society while the old one vanishes. Thus, the transition should work fine.

How often and when has a term been used ?

On a mailing list I am a member of, I just found mentioned this tool:

http://books.google.com/ngrams

It is available for a couple of languages and shows at which time the term searched for has been used how often.

It seems to have gone through the blogging world a few years before, but I had never heard about it, and found it quite interesting. Good for linguists as well as sociocultural research indeed. I tried (having written my thesis about human dignity and international law) “dignity”, and found the result rather unexpected at first.
