About S1E2 A Fantasy on Mars

What is nomenclature? What makes it powerful? This episode has an answer. A New Nomenclature, the third episode in Series 4 – Thumoslang Philosophy, explains further.

This episode tells the story of how Alec Mustafayev, born in 2002, and Jairson Ascencao, born in 1999, became friends in late 2019. Related to this episode is the video [From Strangers to Relationship in 5 Meetings | NDBaker93 | S14E17](v=6Zn3d-OLauk) on Ri4CTV. In it, both Alec Mustafayev and Jairson Ascencao talk about their initial meetings.

Thumoslang’s immense power rests with its thumbnail definitions, each of which specifies in a few words the condition that, if met, lets you know when the named concept is at play. That gives Thumoslang users an effective way to prevent others from misinterpreting their speech and abusing them with linguistic ambiguity. That is how they keep the unwanted drama to a minimum, especially during difficult social situations. Consequently, they can change one’s worldview in a few sentences. This episode, A Fantasy on Mars, provides a demonstration. Read more

About S1E3 A New Subject in School

It recounts the first meeting between Nickantony Quach, a published philosopher, and Andy, a junior student of a local high school. His friend Ed, a senior student, introduced the two.

About S1E4 A Foretaste of Love

What is love? What is the result of loving? This episode answers these questions directly and offers the objective meaning of love, whereas The Law of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 4 – Thumoslang Philosophy, explains how love behaves. Both episodes provide the necessary context for First Encounter with Love, the eighth episode in Trekvella’s Series 3 – Thumoslang at Work. All three episodes together make up the love lesson of Trekvella. Without its knowledge, many parents could not explain the mechanics of love to their children and correctly discharge its power. This secret of love first appeared in Chapter Six of the original Thumos textbook in 2017. Before that, almost all members of our humanity frequently had a hard time with love and, in general, relationships.

The Big Picture First, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 2 – Practical Guide to Thumoslang, takes a closer look at this episode. It shows how to address a momentary issue by looking at a bigger context. It also explains how the handling of a relationship plays out in this episode, A Foretaste of Love.

In this episode, the author tells the story of how Norman D. Baker, born in 1993, was introduced to Rhode Island Foresight Television (Ri4CTV), a YouTube channel. The second half of this episode is based on the video [What is Leadership? How to Lead? | NDBaker93 | S1E12](v=ekIJ8MQdCGw) on Ri4CTV.

About S1E7 Ahead of History

What is leadership? Why do most people know only its perceived meaning but not its objective meaning? This episode gives you a heads-up. What a Catch, the 7th episode in Series 2 – Practical Guide to Thumoslang, explains further.

Based on the video [What is Leadership? How to Lead? | NDBaker93 | S1E12](v=ekIJ8MQdCGw), this episode explains the concept of leadership. To be a leader, you must not go too far ahead that what you do is not part of what your people do in their history.

About S1E8 A Child Empowered

The video [How The Children Should Speak The Parent Language | NDBaker93 | S6E11](v=RE2pjyz5Flo) captures Norman D.

About S2E6 Dead-end Walk & Love Bench

Within the hour right after Nickantony Quach and Alec Mustafayev published their Trekvella reading collection’s first 39 episodes on Kindle Vella in July 2021, Nick on YouTube ran into the so-called Meaning123, the video [Why the world is going crazy-and how to win back our minds | Jamie Wheal | Big Think](v=vqJQvJ7i7Ek). Four days later, their mutual friend Norman D. Baker reacted to it on camera. The result is the video [Norman’s Reaction to Jamie Wheal’s Video | Feedback by Norman](v=JQ4tStrA-Ks).

They are two of the most influential people in the development of Thumoslang during its initial years. “Alec Mustafayev, born in 2002, is a teenage author. He was 15 years old when he published his first book, Rebellious. The book did not automatically bring him an income stream, to his surprise. Two years later, for income, he went to work at Cutco, a knife selling company, where he met Jairson Ascencao, born in 1999.” They talk about their first encounters in the YouTube video [From Strangers to Relationship in 5 Meetings | NDBaker93 | S14E17](v=6Zn3d-OLauk).

About S3E4 Black Mountain of Social Life

Why do many friends leave us after a few years? This episode answers the question and explains one of the biggest and darkest problems in life. If you alone moved to a foreign land where the locals did not speak your language, and you had no prior arrangement for local connections, you would face a black mountain in your social life until you learn how to speak the local language. To a lesser degree, a student at a new school has the same experience, even with fluency in the local language. We all face the black mountain in our social life mainly because we do not speak the language of relationships. Until the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration was published, there was no such thing.

About S3E5 Deal With It

How to counterbalance self-serving bias? What is a second mind? This episode has the answer. Whenever it involves nurturing another person’s ideals, the concept of a second mind is at play.

About S3E8 First Encounter with Love

How should one discharge the power of love systematically? What are the four elements of love? This episode has the answer. Respect for Disrespect, Episode 7, involves the first element of love in its presentation.

In a talk with Nickantony Quach, Alec Mustafayev, born in 2002, learned how to love objectively for the first time. This episode uses their conversation to introduce the four elements of love, first documented by Chapter Six in Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. More than just the lesson of how to discharge the power of love correctly, the reader thereby gets to know Alec up close and personally.

A Foretaste of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, offers the objective meaning of love, whereas The Law of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 4 – Thumoslang Philosophy, explains how love behaves. Both episodes provide the necessary context for this episode. All three episodes together make up the love lesson of Trekvella. Without its knowledge, many parents could not explain the mechanics of love to their children and correctly discharge its power. This secret of love first appeared in Chapter Six of the original Thumos textbook in 2017. Before that, almost all members of our humanity frequently had a hard time with love and, in general, relationships.


Trekvella Series 4 Thumoslang Philosophy

About S4E1 Matching Understanding

What is the objective of a nomenclature? How does it work? How to Match Understanding, the third episode in Series 2 – Practical Guide to Thumoslang, and this episode provide the answer.

About S4E2 Reputation After Death

What is life? What is existence? This episode answers these questions directly.

About S4E3 A New Nomenclature

What is nomenclature? What makes it powerful? The second episode in Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, A Fantasy on Mars, has an answer. This episode explains further.

What is the objective of a nomenclature? How does it work? The two articles, Matching Understanding, Episode 1, and How to Match Understanding, the third episode in Series 2 – Practical Guide to Thumoslang, provide the answer.

In this episode, a high school student explains the importance of Thumoslang. It also explains that “nomenclature is a naming system. The Periodic Table, for example, is part of the nomenclature for chemistry. Elements specified on the table ensure all Chemists have a matching understanding in all their conversations. If you want to become an expert in any field, you must first speak its nomenclature. Social life is a field that lacks its formal vocabulary, necessary for matching understanding. That’s why humans tend to have a hard time with relationships, especially those inside the family. We often misunderstand one another in various social situations. To go from misunderstanding to matching understanding, we need to have a formal vocabulary for social life: the Thumoslang nomenclature.”

About S4E4 The Law of Love

How does love work? What is its fundamental prerequisite? This episode answers these questions. The first episode in Series 3 – Thumoslang at Work, Your Ideals Matter, explains further.

A Foretaste of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, offers the objective meaning of love, whereas this episode explains how love behaves. It states that the eight laws of love are not absolute, but they are falsifiable. People can test them and, over time, improve them. They are still valid in describing how love behaves.

Both episodes provide the necessary context for First Encounter with Love, the eighth episode in Trekvella’s Series 3 – Thumoslang at Work. All three episodes together make up the love lesson of Trekvella. Without its knowledge, many parents could not explain the mechanics of love to their children and correctly discharge its power. This secret of love first appeared in Chapter Six of the original Thumos textbook in 2017. Before that, almost all members of our humanity frequently had a hard time with love and, in general, relationships.

About S4E5 Can Trust Be Trusted?

How is Thumoslang created? This episode explains. Thumoslang’s immense power rests with its thumbnail definitions. Nickantony Quach created the first one in 2001. He included the first set in the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. The book did not mention Thumoslang by name because Nick did not recognize the vocabulary’s immense power until December 2018. Almost a year later, he still did not have any thumbnail definition for the concept of trust. This episode documents how he and his friends, within an hour, came up with the Thumoslang thumbnail definition of trust. It demonstrates that the creation of Thumoslang is an arduous process taking place over many years.

About S4E6 The Gist of Authenticity

Understanding authenticity as a concept is a big deal because one of the four pathways to regret is the lack of authenticity. Later episodes will spell out the other three pathways to regret. Another episode elsewhere in the Thumoslang octalogy will explain why the lack of authenticity leads to regret. This episode only provides the necessary background information for that explanation.

About S4E7 Language of Friendship

What is the objective difference between family and friends? This episode explores the opening question using vocabulary provided by Thumoslang thumbnail definitions.

About S4E8 Significance Needs

What are significance needs? Is having a good life the same as meeting your significance needs? How should one fulfill one’s significance needs? This episode explores such questions.

About S4E9 Objective Data for Subjective Language

Unwanted drama often appears in the middle of linguistic ambiguity. The listener cannot select from several alternative definitions of a term uttered by the speaker. As soon as we agreed to select a certain sense for that term ahead of every conversation using a few words, we produced a thumbnail definition for it. A collection of such thumbnails make up a formal vocabulary, aka nomenclature. This episode explores the mechanics of Thumoslang and explains what nomenclature is and how it works.


Trekvella Series 5 Personal Startup Using Thumoslang

About S5E1 A Startup for Your Ideals

What’s the best way to create a group of friends lasting longer? This episode offers an answer. Also, see The Vision of a Wealth-Building Friend Group.

About S5E2 Changing a Life in 20 Sentences

How could one use Thumoslang to change another person’s worldview in a few sentences? This episode explains.

About S5E3 Reciprocation Not Reciprocity

Why do conversations often fail us? What’s the best way to avoid its pitfalls systematically? This episode addresses these questions.

“If you want to respect someone’s life, avoid interfering with their ideals. If you’re going to respect someone in our conversation, you have to understand and use the process of reciprocation, which is not the same as the ethics of reciprocity.” This episode explains further. “You will learn how to get others to respect your life as a whole and you, specifically in a social situation.”

If you are in a hurry to repair love, you may want to read Chapter Six of the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. The chapter’s title, however, is not Love. Instead, it’s Reciprocation. That’s because you could not discharge the power of love correctly if you failed to carry out the reciprocation process; this episode explains further.

About S5E4 Your Life Departments

How does one know which project in life to focus on first? Business of the Self, the fifth episode in Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, and this episode have the answer.

Business of the Self, the fifth episode in Trekvella’s Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, explains how to realize personal ideals at the highest speed possible by running your life professionally.

Could you love others without knowing how they run their constantly-evolving life departments?

About S5E5 NOT IN USE

About S5E6 Second Mind & Second Family

Feeding your children and putting a roof over their heads is not what parenting is all about.” This episode explains further.

About S7E6 Separation of Personal Ideals

“The separation of personal ideals takes place between the age of one and 18. The separation is when the child wants parents to respect personal life. When must parents separate the child’s ideals from theirs?” This episode explains further.

About S7E7 Preparing for Separation

“Separation of personal ideals does not mean keeping away from each other. It means the opposite. It is necessary for love. If your child’s ideals are the same as yours, you could only love yourself, not your child. As suggested earlier, such an idea is hard to understand without the mastery of Thumoslang.” This episode explains further.

About S8E5 Hardcore Concepts for Your Ideals

“A few weeks before the September 11th Attacks, Nickantony Quach walked his son to school on his first day in first grade. On the walk back home, between their good-bye and the first stop sign, it dawned on Nick that he had always been a father by default but never a father by design.” This episode tells the rest of the story.

About S8E6 Four Steps

According to this episode, “one of the most all-embracing intellectual creations Mark Canny has ever produced is the reciprocation process, documented by Chapter Six in the original Thumos textbook. “The four steps of reciprocation are disclosure, comprehension, consideration, and acknowledgment,” declared Mark Canny in 2016 while working with Nickantony Quach on their book. This episode explains further as it extends the true story told by Dead-end Walk & Love Bench, the sixth episode in Series 2 – Practical Guide to Thumoslang.

This episode explains the concept of management.

About S8E8 Teamwork Not Working Alone

Danny had social clarity when he identified that what went down between him and Cody over the six months was a service and not a relation. However, he did not use that knowledge and stopped the unappreciated service early, before it made him feel unhappy. As a vocabulary, Thumosland is a philosophy without rules. It does not tell Danny how to spend time with Cody or stop doing it. It only gives Danny social clarity. What to do with his understanding of the social situation is up to him and his philosophy. Because Danny did not develop a personal philosophy using Thumoslang as a template, he did not apply any rules to the situation at hand.

About S9E5 Reparenting in the Late Twenties

This episode shows how a mentor reparents someone approaching middle age using Thumoslang.
