[1] The immense power of Thumoslang also plays out in the true story told by the video [Thumoslang Appearance | NDBaker93 | S19E03](v=J2DemiPnOJw). In it, Charbel Hachem, a teenager from Rhode Island, explains how three short sentences based on Thumoslang changed his life.

[2] Hachem talked about his dream to build a business. He encountered Ri4CTV, the YouTube channel, as he talked to Nickantony Quach, a published philosopher. Hachem spoke about several Thumoslang thumbnail definitions, linking them to how he perceived the world. As told in Chapter 20, The Discovery of Thumoslang occurred in their December 2018 exchange.

[3] That was more than a year after Quach published the original Thumos textbook (OTB); it’s the 2017 textbook Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. The book, however, does not mention the Thumoslang nomenclature by name because neither Quach nor his coauthor understood their creation completely. Their dream was to fulfill the vision of unwanted drama minimized systematically for all.

  • Thumos; that means, no unwanted drama.
  • Thumoslang; that means, social clarity.

[4] A few years later, Quach developed Thumoslang further by showing individuals how to improve their lives using the named vocabulary. He first documented his work informally in the online booklet The Chronicle of Bongo One (COB1). He turned it into a formal product in early 2022 by writing 42 chapters in 42 days for this book, Life in 184 Words, also known as Thumoslang on the Run (OTR). These chapters helped Quach increase his mentoring power tremendously. He documented his mentoring experience in another online booklet, Thumoslang for Character Renovation (TCR).

[5] The author wrote TCR many months after he wrote OTR. However, because of TCR, he revised a handful of chapters in OTR. The two books are intricately linked with one another as a result.

[6] OTB, COB1, OTR, and TCR are the sequence of books tracing the creation, discovery, and development of Thumoslang between 2017 and 2022. OTB, the print edition, captured the initial creation of Thumoslang. COB1, the online booklet, documents the first successful use of Thumoslang. OTR is the first book written to teach Thumoslang.

[7] TCR follows the slow-burn transformation of several individuals the author mentored over many months, even years. One of them is Logan Alpin, not his real name. TCR’s chapters 19 through 25 documented the initial steps of his Thumoslang journey. His experience encountering Thumoslang was so influential that the author revised this book to include the documented experience.

[8] The United States has over 15,000 economists by formal employment. Alpin wants to become one of them in the future. He is a student with a vision for the world. Still, he couldn’t fully articulate it until after he acquired the knowledge of Thumoslang.

[9] The most remarkable fact about the experience is that within a few weeks after he began his Thumoslang journey, he decided to help develop the vocabulary for use in teaching economics. The following incident offers a demonstration.


[10] Alpin, a college student in his third undergraduate year in Economics, spent a morning with the author in mid-August 2022. At one point, he spent a lot of time explaining the concept of inflation. The author helped him develop the following new Thumoslang thumbnail definition to give him a better way to convey his teaching.

  • Inflation; that means, less buying power.

[11] Alpin was happy to have a shortcut in teaching the public a popular concept in economics. He also wants to develop a comprehensive set of Thumoslang-style thumbnail definitions for economics and use it to help the public make economic decisions, especially under emotional stress.
