As usual, I’ll provide notes to the above to anyone interested.
Wie immer, hat jemand Fragen, bitte stellen Sie sie mir u. ich werde erklaeren.
As usual, I will provide explanations and notes to anyone interested. Just contact me. .
If anyone would like explanatory notes, just write to me.
I’ve used my script so much that I write it fluently–much faster than I would write “longhand”.
Again in answer to, “Well, can you use these for abstract ideas?”
I had fun doing this and made some satisfying new id creations. I underlined some of them in red. I will gladly explain them to and only to anyone interested enough to write to me and ask.
The section between the two red marks is a transcription of the book page. Whenever I do this I create delightful new creations and improvements. If I weren’t delighted, I wouldn’t do it. Perhaps it is like the delight of a painter at the effect of a few deft brushstrokes.
I was up very early working on my project. My diligence is fueled by my enthusiasm based on my vision and insight.
I work on, like a painter, a painter of ideas.
A side-thought: I just chanced to need to recall the id for “quasi”– simply “as if” in Latin. Part of the joy of id use is the joy of remembering (another big one being creating). I don’t think I’d used the “quasi” id since I created it years ago, yet I remembered. How many people would want to “bother”? Only those who revel in the use of their minds–a minority, I suppose. But it is moot, since I am the only one doing this now.
The part underlined in red says, “I should thank J. for giving me the book. But probably will not. It would be too uncomfortable to talk to him again. We have too big differences. He is way too conventional for me. Yet, he is quite a scholar, which is admirable.
Surely you will consider such a hand is of little use. Now look closely at the functions of your mind/brain. Can you affirm with utter certainty that you always think only when and about what you really want to, and that therefore you know from where your thoughts and feelings come into the light of your consciousness?”
The ids are rather compact, aren’t they. I often think of Christophe’s question in our interview, ” And can you represent abstract concepts with your script? And how I can–that’s most of the fun and beauty of it!
I am getting rather good and fast at writing in ids-only checked my dictionary a couple of times writing this page.
Some transcription from the book Concentration by Mouni Sadhu.
The sentence underlined in pink says “It is essential that you curb the excessive curiosity of your mind for at least the short periods when you are working for perennial instead of mortal and ephemeral things. ”
Transcribing is an exercise in not just memory but creativity. I circle novelties and improvements for later harvest into my dictionary.
Two remarkable things about what I am doing:
- It works! I don’t know of any other such ideogram systems that come anywhere close to working as well as this.
- It changes the psyche. Language is so central to our beings that having a huge new toolbox of images always present and participating is a big change.
