DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
For those who choose to do the work---the first thing that we are going to do is to teach ourselves about the word etymology. In order to do this in a correct manner, there are some minor things that must be accomplished. 1st thing for us to do---get over knowing without knowing---whatever you have been taught in school is not what we are doing-get over believing what your saviors have told you, because, it is not what we are doing. The process that you will learn is an aspect of learning how to learn and you are going to learn how to teach yourself. YOU are going to learn how to fish for yourself so that you will not have to trust another to know for YOU. This is the only way that you will come to have the power to feed yourself.
Please go to your dictionary and look up the word etymology. Please make yourself familiar with this word. Start by reading the definition. From here, go to the dictionary guide or how to use the dictionary and read what it tells you about the science that is known as “Etymology”. As we precede, we will at a later time enter into dialog about definitions and meanings, this will be important but we will have to wait. Look up the words etymon and also logy.
Please post comments about what you find and this will allow us to move forward.
@MMO-Most probably it will be well worth the time invested---it was for MX.
I'm out of town with mom at the moment. I will follow up on this when I arrive back in Houston on Tuesday and will have limited access to internet until then.
will look forward to the interaction and I know you will be one of the ones to receive the benefit.
By the way, I have noticed that a great number of people say that they are interested in learning about the past, I find it strange that they do not know how to build a time machine-Whereas-one of the component parts is language. How do you study the past without knowing how language evolves and changes as time moves forward. As the time changes so does the language that is used to convey what is thought about what is going on at the time of YOUR existence or the existence of your ancestors.
once you start to asking questions, this is what alerts you to the fact that you have begun to learn. Now you are going to have to learn how to ask the correct questions in the correct manner, and this takes time and effort.
You are now out of the gate. Please remember this is not a sprint or a qt. mile, this is the long mile the real race!!!!
Sense took me beyond those five senses we were taught. Multiple dictionaries really made the difference in this exercise.
However, I am still stuck on how to truly trace man back to mind although it was listed as one of the meanings.
I gained much insight about the word source.
remind me in class and I will point out a path that you can engage in which may make it easier for you to accomplish this search.
Please look up and trace the etymology of the words---holy---bible----ghost---alpha---spirit>
