  • Table of Contents
  • Introduction

    Thumoslang resolves two of the biggest interrelated problems in life for everyone: Language and Relationships. Wrong language brings about bad relations. Bad relations create worse language because of emotion. The cycle spins both language and relations out of your control. Thumoslang brings about a widespread control of personal relations.

    The mission of Thumoslang is to minimize misunderstanding, which leads to unwanted drama.

    [2] Thumoslang is the “technology” by which human relations are conducted while minimally generating unwanted drama. For the first time, humans discovered a way to have systematic control of relationships in their social life. First presented by the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration, this discovery should be no less important than the widespread control of fire. Thumoslang accomplishes its mission by thoroughly defining vague yet common concepts we often reference while speaking in social life, thus eliminating the ambiguity that may arise from them.

    [3] Thumoslang is a necessary tool not only for parenting and mentoring but also for handling difficult situations in social life. One of the fastest ways to overcome difficult situations in social life is to ask everyone involved to speak with one another using Thumoslang. Everyone should review the concepts presented herein before conducting their next serious conversation.

    [4] Technically, Thumoslang is the nomenclature for social clarity. It is the first and only system that provides Architecture for Social Logic. The reason it can help the life of anyone who uses it is that it is a philosophy with no rules, and therefore a philosophy that does not interfere with the way someone chooses to live their life. Language is power, and this document shows you how to use it for your purposes, but it doesn’t instruct you to use it in any particular way.

    [5] Each concept presented herein is defined by a Thumoslang thumbnail definition, which is a brief but concise explanation of what makes a concept important. Each Thumoslang thumbnail should be falsifiable, i.e testable to be true or false, and answer the following question: How do I know that the concept is at play in my social situation?

    1 Adulthood & Independence

    toc | next | usage

    Neither a child star with self-sufficient autonomy nor a fully-grown and married manchild with a lot of expensive toys is considered an adult. Adulthood requires more than just independence or marriage. You can neither marry nor buy your way out of childhood. Unfortunately, many people spend their entire lives never reaching adulthood. Worse, most of them don’t ever realize it. This is further explained by the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration.

    Additional Information

    In late 2017, Jon K. Kwee and Nickantony Quach concluded that there are only four different pathways to regret.

    1. A common way leading to regret is the failure in meeting survival needs.
    2. Imposing metrics on other people is the second source of misery for all involved. Nothing good ever comes from imposing metrics on others.
    3. Wrong prioritization such as counter-commitments is the third approach to regret. If your metrics conflict with one another, you may experience counter-commitments. Ambivalence between different metrics will lead you to regret.
    4. The fourth common way leading to regret is the ignorance of authenticity. Not allowing the self to be happier, especially due to metrics imposed by others, or not having the courage to live the life you want to have, is a form of inauthenticity.

    Additional Information

    Consider the following:

    • Dogma is defined as principles or rules that cannot be questioned, or articles of faith not only in different religions but also in many families all over the world. It’s when you lose an argument with your mother before you open your mouth.
    • Something is falsifiable when it can be tested to see if it is true or false.
    • Being not falsifiable does not mean unnecessary; many religions are not falsifiable but they are necessary to many people.
    • Although falsifiable, Thumoslang is a philosophy with no rules; it respects your personal moral compass and thus it does not tell you to accept or reject any religion.
    • A great example of falsifiability is the video The First Falsifiable Definition of Love, which is Episode 3 in Season 8 (S8E3) of the YouTube series NDBaker93.
