“Words” and “Minds” -1

Begun 2000.

Even after WW2 any departure from the strict-school room
verbal-vocabulary and way of writing
was ‘dismissed’ as being ‘racy’ or ‘plain silly’.
=========================
Even now 70 years ‘further on’ –
there is much ‘fogginess’, reaction’, and ‘conflation’
over such’ simple’ words as
‘mind’
and its “Health-derivative” –
‘mental’.

ENTER

(1)
Mindset
by Professor Dweck
Pointing out
the over-inculcation of
“Fixed-Mindedness”
and our need to develop much more of
over-neglected
“Flexible-Mindedness”.
======================================
(2)

Wisdom of the Body Moving
by Linda Hartley
‘Deep-Breakthrough’ surprising the wholeworld –
that the development of our human-movement
happens in
Evolutionary-Stages
actually ‘in parallel’ with
each of Life-on-Earth’s Greater Evolutionary-Stages –
right back before
the ‘Sea=Squirt’, the Frog’, and the Chimpanzee
our brains and ‘minds’
were actually ‘storing’
the memory of that stage’
‘unique’ way of moving.

Furthermore –
our
“Mind”
is not only not just in the Brain,
it is a
‘Mind-Network’
throughout the whole body –
such that each little part of our body
has
‘its-own-mind’ .
===========================

COMMUNICATING “SENSE”

At the computer screen, two people are’co-learning’>
There is a little square in the top right hand corner –
which ‘toggles’ the size of the ‘window’ being shown
between ‘Full-screen’ and ‘Smaller-screen’
“What’s the correct term -”
worries one of those learners –
The other replies
“Well just ‘big’ the picture”.
—————————————————–
Other folk are finding a real need for words like
“Facilitator” to need the derivatives
“Facilitatress” to be clear its a female;
and “Facilitee” to show the recipient of the faciliotation.
———————————————————
Similarly –
as Dr Albert Schweitzer pointed out –
“No doctor ever healed anyone.
All any-one can do for another person is to
Help them to heal theirself.”
So –
There is no such person nor thing as a ” Healer” – .
And we need to understand
that a bandage, as well as the nurse applying it,
are ‘Healing-Helpers’;
even ‘though each
comes within the general-definition of
“therapist”
as
“anyone and anything that helps the person to heal theirself”.
————————————————–
MORE ‘MISNOMERS’

“The NHS”
in real-life-fact
Britain has never yet had a “Health” Service –
The Nation ‘Health’ Service
has in fact always been a good and world-leading
“National Hospitals, Illnesses & Pharmacology Sector”.
———————————————————————————————
“Benefits”

Another “mind-opiate”.-

The term used to be, and should still be,
“Lifesupport Allowances”.

It is of no “benefit” to have ‘become’
(i) a raped single mother.
(ii) a disabled person,
(iii) unemployed.
(iv) “Sick”.
=============================

It is we who are “irresponsible” for
“fogging-up”
our –
and now
the whole-world’s
English Language.

We need to be much more thoroughly
‘watchdogging’
over the words we use
and which we are becoming increasingly
‘guilty’
of empowering our ‘leaders’
to keep further
‘setting-into-constitutional-concrete.
============================

Thank you.
