mūžs - saruna

Visas dzīves būtība - no sākuma līdz beigām - tā ir saruna pašam ar sevi.
Domās un fiziski. 

Kas tam nepiekrīt?

The beginning motivation

For the all cases concerning causes of motivation: 
we must act all the time (even when we subconsciously dreaming about anything) because we are alive . The first motivation for humans and not only for them - we must do something.

And it happens - the individual chooses (for instance, when and how to stand up).

Are we free? Aristotle

Freedom, to prefer freedom, is our guide for life.

For others, priority is to gain power and/or money.


Aristotle (Rhetoric):
"Thus every action must be due to one or other of seven causes: chance, nature, compulsion, habit, reasoning, anger, or appetite."

Domāšana un valoda, tā nav politika

Valoda ir domāšanas instruments.

Domāšana - tā ir saruna pašam ar sevi, saruna mūža garumā (interacting of thoughts in one's head, community of one).

Tas, kā es domāju, ir atkarīgs no manas agrās bērnības, turpmākās pieredzes, vērtībām - ko neapzināti un apzināti uzskatu par svarīgākajām un svarīgām, no tuviem un tālākiem mērķiem - un attiecīgām manām darbībām. Katrs darbs ir mērķtiecīga piepūle.

Ko un kā domāt, ar kādiem simboliem un kādā valodā, un kāpēc tā - katrs pats izvēlas savus domāšanas līdzekļus.

Cilvēkiem vajadzētu saprast, ka jēdziens "valoda" nedrīkst būt par politikas ieroci cilvēku pārvaldīšanai.
