Codes of reality!

What is language!

Language and discipline

From all the above writings that I have done, I think that there is not much need to reemphasise the point that feudal languages do enforce a sort of string of hierarchies. However, actually in non-feudal language atmosphere also, there can be strings of hierarchies. But then, they would not be so markedly powerful. To a great extent, in the case of non-feudal languages, the hierarchies would be in a dispersed state, and not confined to defining strings and focuses.

But then in feudal languages, the strings are quite marked and powerful. Every word, usage, sentence made in the feudal language would have strong significance in terms of the component of direction. Words protrude direction components that are quite in alignment to the direction of the string. However, there can be words, usages, sentences and such things that protrude direction components that are at variance to the general direction of the string. Whenever anyone in the string speaks such words, usages and sentences, they are actually getting out of the rhyme and frequency of the string. At that point a break does happen and one may be able to visualise a leak in the power flow in the string.

In the case of non-feudal languages also, this is there. However, these things are more detectable in their stark form in feudal languages, for they come in an array of indicant word levels.

One major observation or visualisation can be made about this. Think about the police machinery in a Malayalam speaking nation. There is a very specific word group that points downwards down the hierarchy and another word group that point in the opposite direction, upwards. For example, the downward direction can be Nee or Ningal for you. Usually the upward direction word for you is Sar. For He the upward direction word can be Sar or Adheham or Avar. For the downward direction, the word can be Avan or Ayaal. {In the case of She, the downward direction word shall be Aval, and the upward direction can be Sar, Avar etc.}

The smooth flow of communication is maintained by this powerful lining up of words, which more or less forces each individual to confining spaces, both upwards as well as downwards. Even though, one may say that there can be a powerful string of discipline holding everyone down, the reality is more complicated. This is due to the fact that there would be a multiplicity of command centres in existence, because of many senior persons. Also, parallel to these strings of command, other strings of hierarchy would also be in existence.

Such as that connected to age, financial acumen, proximity to power centres, caste and such. Since persons of different levels in all these things would be there at all levels, they do complicate the routes of power or command flow, as different hierarchical strings interpose into each other, and with the main official string of hierarchy.

These parallel strings can bring in disarray in the official string of hierarchy. Beyond all this is the sly attitude of interposing words of disrespect with that of respect, in the physical absence of the ‘respected’ person.

However the official version can be the most powerful string, even though at times, the other strings can bring in a slight amount of dismay. The overall cumulative effect of these strings would be the tinting of the outside community (the common man) with the same codes of hierarchy.

Most the common persons more or less are placed at a position much below that of the lowest of the police officials. Since the average Indian policeman is from a very uninformed, crude, lowly mental state of behaviour, the average Indian is forcefully placed below them. It more or less ruins the mental stature of the ordinary Indian. However, most Indians are innately trained to be comfy with this pathetic intellectual stature.

Now comes a theme for contemplation: Suppose by some force of terror or intimidation, the police personnel are made to reverse their communication direction. What happens?

Well, what is proposed is this: the lower policeman is made to address his superiors with a Nee, and refer to them as Avan or Aval.  What would happen then? The whole string literarily burst outs into fumes at each contact terminal! Everything goes into disarray. Well, thinking from a worldly view, it is not a great discovery, but seen from the world of codes, it is a very powerful reversal of energy that the string cannot withstand. It bursts.

Well, one can ask: Is the same not possible in a language like English also. Yes, it is possible. However, the words used at the level of ordinary communication has only one level, that of one You, one He, one She, one His, one Her/s, one their/s and such. The complications that are possible in a feudal language are not contemplate-able in English. Logic, reasoning, compulsions and much else are very clear and lucid, and not with non-tangible inner strings that is always there in feudal languages.
