Once the Lingua-U book (now called Lingua-U, Vol. I: The Unitive Metalanguage) is out, and once The Kalendar blog finishes its 365th daily post, I’m thinking of doing a humorous YouTube video series called “Joe Perez Spoils Language”.
It’s going to be hard for anyone to go back to using language naive of the relationships of its subtle energetic components. What name do you give for anything anymore? Oneness? Geist? Zeitgeist? Spirit? God? All-in-All? All-That-Is? Allah? Unity? Universe? Kosmos? Kronos?
Really there are only about three or four really good names that aren’t spoiled for the overarching framework that encompasses all the other stations in Lingua-U. The rest are probably spoiled forever, for reasons you will soon discover for yourself. They aren’t ruined as great words within their own Stations, but they really aren’t suitable as a term that can unify the Sacred Words of all the religions and philosophies. Maybe there are only two or three good names for that. I’m not telling you now just yet… wait until the December solstice 2017.
I didn’t mean to cause anyone distress. I just went in search of a way of moving beyond Language to translinguistic knowledge, and found that I’d have to move the goalposts to metalanguage. Just a cowboy who wanted to come home from the range, but found myself riding into an unexplored terrain.
Good thing I was born on the day of “Moxie”, since I’m essentially asking the entire world to change its fundamental relationship to both language and subtle energy, and to grok the linkage between the two, or risk the possibility of languishing in continued use of ruined speech devoid of the ability to inspire the same sense of sacredness it used to. I imagine I will be needing all the Moxie I can muster in the years ahead to ride this project out.
Buddha? Emptiness? Nirvana? Satori? Shunyata? Nothingness? Nil? Zen? Zero? Oh dear, even the Buddhists need to use language to point out nothing. But they’ll probably be the least upset when language is spoiled. They shouldn’t be though.
And how do you pronounce Jesus? Like the Hebrews as YESHUA? Like the English as GEEZUZ? Or like the Spanish with HESOOS? You’ll have to figure this out on your own. I won’t get to giving a full discussion of the Divine Names in the Lingua-U project for another couple of years.
And God help us, what will we name the CHILDREN in a world when every phoneme holds a metalinguistic sacred importance? You may know what the etymology of your name is, but do you know its metalinguistic sound-meaning, the story of its unfolding in U___?
You can’t avoid these issues if you care a whit about spiritualilty or religion or philosophy, you can only return in willful ignorance to a forgetfulness about subtle energetics of language, a time before metalanguage came to town. Good luck with that.
