Lojban

You know Powlow has nothing to do with Lojban. You're just using him as a psychological ruse. Lojban's for intellectuals!

Lojban's more like Jerome, Bobong, Rex, Steve, and Jai.

Lojban Non-Western
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
You know Lojban's non-Western, but that notion shouldn't intimidate you. I know people from south of the border like Interlingua, but you know not many are actually learning it. Anyway, I know Lojban, Esperanto, and Interlingua, all three of them... (I'm in Canada.)

Dirty Language
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
I know you think English is a dirty language. It's from the irregular sounds and twisted spellings. It makes you feel dizzy, but you don't know it. Anyway, I think I'm more used to it than you are. The reason is that I know the IPA phonology of English and its grammar fully.

God Belief
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
As I walked to 7-11 in the middle of the night, past midnight anyway, I overheard a neighbour say, "You don't believe in God!" I then replied by yelling, "I believe in God more than you do!" The problem is that others believe God is like a person, a personal entity, but I believe It or They to be impersonal, like space, light, or wind...

Genetic Glee
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some aspect of happiness is just genetic. Some people are biologically built to be happier than others. Of course, some aspect of happiness is environmental.

People Abroad
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
People who don't travel around this world don't know that people are really different elsewhere. They might think that everyone is like the people in their locality, but it isn't so.

Suicidal Tendencies
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
I saw a white man, smoking, with a backpack this morning, and he wanted to commit suicide by standing on the road, as a car was approaching. The car changed to the next lane. I think this negative thinking is more evident amongst whites around here, and they could be from south of the border. (I'm in Canada.)

Schizophrenic Thinking
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some people think that as text gets piled up on top of one another as in this blog, the higher text is superior. That thinking is just bulls**t! They're sick. Sometimes, you can see a painting with a bright fruit, like a pear, at the bottom part. Your mind should be less linear, and you should think more flexibly.

Work, Work, Work
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some people visiting from south of the border (I'm in Canada) display a dislike for work of all kinds. You know even peeing, defecating, sex, gardening, cooking, etc. can be work. So if you don't like working, then you don't like doing anything! It's a mental disease... These people seem to think that there's no such thing as play anymore or that play doesn't mix with work. It's a mental disease...

Anthropomorphism, Anthropocentrism
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
The problem with this Western place here is that people are too anthropocentric, people-centred, with anthropomorphic tendencies, thinking everything has people shape. You're more than just human! You're related to ducks, trees, even rivers, mountains, the sky, and so on. Don't always look for humans, people...

USA Satan-controlled
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some people have mentioned that perhaps the USA is controlled by the Devil or Satan. In any case, that country seems to be in clouds of negativity, reaching up here in Canada. What do they want from us peace-loving people?

My English Garbage

I'm beginning to think that my English writing is just garbage, as I prefer other languages.

Schizophrenic Letters and People Names
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some people think the initial letters of words have something to do with people whose names have the same initial letters. Crazy! Also, some think that if your personal name is the same as someone else's, then there must be a connection. Crazy!

India's Teardrop
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
A recent advertisement for Cocotraie Magazine describes Sri Lanka as "India's teardrop" because of its shape and location. How funny! Maybe you don't know India (Bharat) is mostly Hindu, whilst Sri Lanka is mostly Buddhist.

Mormon Afternoon
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
I met a few Mormons this afternoon. On a Lulu Island street, I met two Elders, a white American from Utah and a half-Korean half-American from Idaho, both with Mandarin name labels, with a logographic The Book of Mormon, and they spoke some Mandarin. They said their God was personal, whilst I maintained God was impersonal. I said Nature was an aspect of God. (I declared that I believed more in Science.) Then I went to Pizza Hut, where Sister Faleono (Samoan) from California and Sister Gertside (white) from Maryland were eating pizza. They said their church would have a barbecue.

Then also at Pizza Hut, I met a Buddha-looking Korean realtor. I talked about nostalgic Lulu Island when it was like Alaska in 1976. He was from Philadelphia. He mentioned that this place should be more like Philippines with more Filipinos. I told him South Korean drama was popular in the Philippines, and some there were learning Korean. I mentioned to him that many Korean magazines and modern books no longer used many Hanja logograms. North Koreans didn't use Hanja mostly. I also told him that many Koreans started living in the Philippines, especially in Manila.

Belief in War
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Some believe that only a big war would irradicate their problems. They believe in technological retrogression. It's not inconceivable, as the Roman Empire fell, leading to the Dark Ages, a retrogressive phenomenon. Because I believe in the Yang principle, not Yin, I believe progress would just continue from the present, much as portrayed in Arthur C. Clarke's sci-fi books.

Hort Town
Kastelo Verda
vesperto
Lulu Island reminds me of Hort Town in the Earthsea books of Ursula K. Le Guin. It's full of drug addicts and miserable people. (It's true that many are just visitors.)
