12/7/18 transcription

I just transcribed a page from Somatics by Thomas Hannah. I was pleased with how quickly I could write it and how compact it is. I came up with a right-on id for “prow” immediately.

Notes on Sadhguru advice for sleeping and waking

 

I took notes on this video in ids, my preferred way of writing. A few spontaneous new id creations arose, as is usually the case.  I love how ideas that have proven intractable, difficult problems to represent satisfactorily in ids are solved spontaneously, I think because my subconscious has been working on them. The subconscious does the work anyway! I often think of Mark Johnson’s contention that “image schemas” underly conceptualization and categorization.  What is an “image schema” other than a natural (proto-) ideogram?  I believe that by consciously working with ideograms one is working with one’s subconscious, improving it.  And if, as the cognitive scientists like Johnson and Lakoff say, 95% of thought is un(sub-)conscious, then improving the subconscious with conscious ideograms opens a royal road to improved mental integration and mental self-mastery.

decent, intelligent, and again on how wonderful what I am doing is

Writing things out with regular script is to me tedious, boring, slow, dead, while writing with ids is fast, exciting, vibrant, creative, rich, alive.

Comment on a Dr. Joseph Suglia aphorism on art

As I say in my note, as with my id for “contemplate,” I love it when I cut the umbilical cord of attachment to Latin roots, often a semantic ball and chain tying a word/idea to  outmoded and not-very-sensical Latin.  “Contemplate”: com-, here probably an intensive prefix (see com-), + templum “area for the taking of auguries”. The id, on the other hand, fixes the idea with accuracy, graphic vividness, and semantic elan (at least I think so).  Ideograms are freeing–a means of moving forward with English.

intelligence

In grappling with a complex idea like this it seems worthwhile to have an image, at least as a starting point, not that it captures the whole thing.

I am still creating every day, just not sharing much.  I create ids constantly; they are a big permanent part of my mental makeup, a richly rewarding means of relating to words and ideas.  Here are some creations I made while lying in bed thinking a bit before rising and while going through the motions of making my coffee.

Notes:

in the second sentence “up” is a person standing beside a bed–more expressive than ordinarily written English!

the graphic opposite of rut given transcends ordinary English. We don’t have a word for that.  Ids are NOT merely a way of stupidly transcribing English; they create new takes on ideas and go beyond, adding linguistic freedom.

DAS LICHT EINSCHALTEN

I am still here in the German speaking world and came across this this morning.  To me put into ids it is brighter and more poetic.

greater access

These, assuming you personalize them , and maybe without, can give you greater access to your own ideas, greater access to your own mind, including your subconscious.
