In this video, posted in late April 2021, Jamie Wheal argued that we’re in the midst of the collapse in meaning. “We’ve had a collapse in traditional organized religion, what you could call kind of Meaning 1.0,” he said. “Organized religion is no longer a place to hang our hats. And at the same time, modern liberalism has also been getting a little creaky. That’s Meaning 2.0.”

His argument leads to the following question. “How do we create liberating structures so that a lot of people all around the world can experiment, innovate and adapt their approaches to finding and restoring meaning, without it coming tops-down?”

“If we want to create Meaning 3.0, which is a blend of traditional religion, and modern liberalism, how do we have the salvation that religion promises and the inclusion that modern liberalism is committed to?” Asked Wheal. “From Meaning 1.0, we need healing, inspiration, and connection. From the modern liberal side, we want this to be open-source. We want anybody to access this; it needs to be scalable, really cheap, or outright free. And then the third is it has to be anti-fragile.”

What is the idea of an anti-fragile solution that digs in and gets more assertive, more rooted, and more effective as things deteriorate around it?

The answer might just be Thumoslang.

Are we ready to win back our minds by showing the individual how to win another victory for our humanity?

 

2 Introduction

toc | previous | next

 

The suffix -lang gives it away as a language. Still, Thumoslang’s users may consider it the new “technology” to make their emotional life more efficient and their intellectual life more effective. A significant application of Thumoslang is in parenting; see the Kindle Vella’s reading series Parenting Made Perfect.

Thumoslang’s immense power rests with its countless thumbnail definitions, which make up the formal vocabulary for social life. While its mission is social clarity, its objective is people having matching understanding.

In the Kindle Vella’s reading series Thumoslang Stories, the two episodes An Important Walk and A New Subject in School show that anyone could use the knowledge of Thumoslang to change another person’s worldview only in a few sentences yet multiple times during the same conversation. That is how people could supersize their language power to win friends and influence others but in much less effort.

The collection Thumoslang Reading Series on Kindle Vella is the foremost authoritative source of knowledge on Thumoslang. In support are the Thumoslang Video Series on YouTube. These serial resources make it easier to deliver Thumoslang Education.

Greater Social Life Union (GSLU) is a network of those who want to achieve extraordinary social life with other like-minded individuals by using Thumoslang. The local chapters of GSLU make up the Thumoslang Social Network.

If you want to use Thumoslang as a strategy for a more meaningful social life, or if you’re going to show others how to do it, keep reading. This document helps make it easy for learners and teachers to start their Thumoslang journey.

 

3 Educational Material

Teaching Thumoslang is the best way to become an expert in social life. It is easy to educate yourself in Thumoslang. To get started, take the following steps.

First, watch the YouTube series Thumoslang102 on the channel Ri4CTV. All 21 videos are free to watch.

Next, read the first three free episodes of each of the eight series in the collection Thumoslang Reading Series on Kindle Vella. All 24 episodes are free to read.

If you want to become more effective or more efficient in mentoring others, you should read the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. Its hardcover is available at Barnes & Noble. Thumoslang pioneers refer to it as the original Thumos book.

Attention Parents, Teachers & Mentors

Parents, teachers, and mentors should consider all of the above as the must-do steps. Part of these steps is to read the series Parenting Made Perfect, available on Amazon’s Kindle Vella.

Attention All Translators

Initially, Thumoslang is available in English. It will be available in other major languages.

If you are a translator who would like to help spread Thumoslang into countries or cultures based on a language other than English, please contact the Quach & Mustafayev Group (QMG) for translation opportunities.

Attention Residents Outside of the United States

Amazon’s Kindle Vella may not be ready to make the collection Thumoslang Reading Series on Kindle Vella available to those outside of the United States. Please contact QMG for alternative ways to access the reading collection.

4 About GSLU & Its Local Chapters

toc | previous | next

 

Greater Social Life Union (GSLU) is a network of those who want to achieve extraordinary social life with other like-minded individuals by using Thumoslang. The local chapters of GSLU make up the Thumoslang Social Network.

GSLU is not about instant gratification through immediate socialization. It’s about using higher consciousness, utilizing the part of our mind capable of transcending animal instincts, but in a fast-paced or challenging social situation.

Nickantony Quach and Alec Mustafayev live in Providence, Rhode Island, United States; they call themselves the Quach & Mustafayev Group (QMG). QMG created the Thumoslang network and all its Meetup groups. It is up to the local members to conduct their local meetings.

GSLU does not have an age-range preference; it does not have criteria for othering. Its members are happy to welcome all kinds of people into the group.

What is the current state of our network?

As of July 2021, over 50 members signed up with each of the two Meetup groups Greater Social Life Union of Riyadh and Greater Social Life Union of London. Over 30 members signed up with each of the five Meetup groups Greater Social Life Union of Vancouver, Greater Social Life Union of Montreal, Greater Social Life Union of Liverpool, Greater Social Life Union of Las Vegas, and Greater Social Life Union of Dallas. However, they did not yet conduct any meeting, be it in person or online. Many other Meetup groups on the network are also in the same status.

What’s next for GSLU? The answer should soon appear below.

 

5 Long Before the First Meeting

toc | previous | next

 

Long before the first meeting with another Greater Social Life Union member, you should prepare yourself with Thumoslang skills. Otherwise, if you interact with others the same way you did before, you would have the same result in your Relations Department as you had in years past. To have a more extraordinary social life, you need to have a systematic approach to relationships.

In recent years, four of the most popular baby names are Emma, Noah, Sophia, and Oliver. We will use them in hypothetical examples for ease of discussion.

Systematic; that means, bias eliminated. When Emma meets good-looking people, she behaves in a certain way. Otherwise, she acts differently. Such differentiation in behavior rests on her self-serving bias, making others see her as not being fair to everyone around her. Consequently, they may negatively behave towards Emma without ever explaining to her why. They might intentionally reduce the amount of their goodwill towards her in the long run. To have a systematic approach to relationships, Emma needs to focus more on her reputation after death and less on her current standing; see Reputation After Death, the second free reading episode in the Kindle Vella series Thumoslang Philosophy.

In 2021, if you cannot access all the free reading episodes directly on Amazon’s Kindle Vella, ask Nickantony Quach for assistance.

Suppose you would like to win friends and influence others but in the most efficient way possible, learn how to change another person’s worldview using only a few sentences but multiple times during the same conversation. For a demonstration, see An Important Walk and A New Subject in School. Both are two free-reading episodes in the Kindle Vella series Thumoslang Stories.

Long before the first meeting with another Greater Social Life Union member, you should educate yourself on how to discharge the immense power of Thumoslang.

 

6 The Thumoslang Game

toc | previous | next

 

Entertainment; that means, agreeable attention. A game is an activity providing entertainment; we have no choice but to play always one or another game. When you go to work, you play by a set of rules made up by a group. When you go to school, you play by a different set of rules made up by another group. At work, you win paychecks. In school, you win good grades. What you win at home is often emotional victories. Between birth and death, you always play the game of life. Life is a game.

Reality; that means, agreement by independent peers. An Associated Press analysis of available government data from May 2021 shows that “breakthrough” infections in fully vaccinated people in the United States accounted for fewer than 1,200 of about 107,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 1.1%. And only about 150 of the more than 18,000 COVID-19 deaths in May were in fully vaccinated people. That translates to about 0.8%. Nearly all professional peers in the healthcare industry agree with the analysis, highlighting the reality of COVID-19 vaccination.

COVID-19 pandemic is a reality game. To play the game, live in a region with a high risk of COVID-19 infection. There is only one rule; you can choose to be fully vaccinated or not. You win if death is not the result of your participation. A reality game is an activity providing entertainment but with irreparable harm. The harm could be physically, emotionally, financially, etc.

The Thumoslang Game is a reality game. To play the game, join a local chapter of the Greater Social Life Union powered by the Thumoslang Social Network. There is only one rule; you can choose to have Thumoslang fluency or not. You win when you realize your ideals, all the most meaningful milestones in your life, at the highest possible speed.

The first move in The Thumoslang Game should change another person’s worldview only in a few sentences. In the Kindle Vella’s reading series Thumoslang Stories, the two episodes An Important Walk and A New Subject in School show that anyone could use the knowledge of Thumoslang to change another person’s worldview only in a few sentences yet multiple times during the same conversation. That is how people could supersize their language power to win friends and influence others but in much less effort.

 

7 ESL for the Natives

toc | previous | next

 

The author of this webpage came up with the following book idea after he created the above sections for the webpage.

[Start of the Book ESL for the Natives]

(Missing front-matter sections)

[Start of Chapter One]

Hello,

I’m Nickantony Quach, and I go by Nick. If you’re new in town or do not feel connected to anyone else in town, please consider me your new friend. It’s easy to interact with me via @Ri4CTV on Instagram.

I’m the creator of Thumoslang, the formal vocabulary for social life. Using Thumoslang, you can speak better English fast and make more friends easily. Through this book, I will show you the way.

Because I grew up in Vietnam, I always have insecurity about speaking or writing English. If you feel insecure with your English skills, you and I are in the same club, and we’re going to get along just fine.

The best way to speak better English is to spend time with fluent speakers who regularly talk to you. Wherever you now are, if you’re in town only for a few years but do not know anyone else locally, how could you quickly make friends with fluent speakers in town? The answer is Thumoslang; this book shows you the way.

The best way to feel connected to the locals is to have a fruitful relationship with at least one of them. What is a relationship; how should one mend it or make it last? What fruits could one harvest from a relationship? The following pages will lead you to the answer.

I cannot write this book without help. My co-writer is Alec Mustafyev, who graduated from high school in 2020. He was born and grew up in the United States. He is a native speaker of English. He was so fluent in English that he published his first novel, Rebellious when he was 15. Nevertheless, Thumoslang makes him an even better speaker of English.

To many native speakers of English, Thumoslang seems to be kind of a foreign language. When they learn Thumoslang, they feel they are learning English as a Second Language (ESL). That’s why the title of this book is “ESL for the Natives.”

If you’re new in town and you’re in town only for a few years, you need to make friends with fluent speakers in town quickly. Until several of them appear in person, you already have two friends: Nickantony Quach and Alec Mustafyev. Together they run the same YouTube channel, Ri4CTV, and the same Instagram channel, @Ri4CTV. Feel free to use either channel to contact them directly, especially when you have a question about Thumoslang.

Wisdom; that means, effective use of knowledge. In July 2021, Nick and Alec created the Thumoslang Reading Series on Kindle Vella, a collection of eight reading series on Amazon’s Kindle Vella. It is the foremost authoritative source of knowledge on Thumoslang. It is the reason why this is a thin book, which shows you how to use the knowledge therein effectively.

In support of the collection is the Thumoslang website, powered by WordPress. When you google the phrase “Thumoslang website,” you will see thumoslang.wordpress.com/guide as one of its most popular links. The link directs you to the Thumoslang Handbook, also known as the Greater Social Life Union Member Handbook, which contains the latest updates to this book.

In a sense, both this book and the handbook are two siblings. The text in one often refers to that in the other, and vice versa. The author, by the way, came up with the idea of writing this book after he nailed down the first sections of the handbook. We could consider this book as an extended version of the manual. Let’s catch up with the online text; its first sections are (1) Prologue, (2) Introduction, (3) Educational Material, (4) About GSLU & Its Local Chapters, (5) Long Before the First Meeting, and (6) The Thumoslang Game.

In the handbook, the Prologue brings our attention to Thumoslang’s ultimate context, what Jamie Wheal calls “Meaning 3.0.” While the second section introduces us to the foremost authoritative source of knowledge on Thumoslang, the third section presents the primary material for Thumoslang education. The fourth section introduces us to the Greater Social Life Union and several of its local chapters. The fifth section explains why you should learn Thumoslang before making many new contacts. The reader discovers the game of Thumoslang in the sixth section.
