"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." --Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin and Hobbes


I once read an article, and I'm agreeing with a sentence of theory presented by the Whorf-Sapir Hypothesis that "Thoughts create language to extend thoughts, and having done so, language in turn limits thoughts." I believe that's true . . . Look at English. No matter how hard we try to create new substitute words to replace all those biased words, we always find ourselves trapped within their boundary. If language was truly limitless, there would not be such difficulty trying to change a language so that it would be less hurtful, less harmful psychologically to many minorities.
