Non-interpretable language

Non-interpretable language (or descriptive universal language)

This article has been made because technology and virtual reality is changing, it’s becoming part of our senses and the way we share information; and perhaps we are very close to being able to design a non-interpretable language (can only be interpreted in one way) or the word from The Venus Project: “Descriptive Universal Language.” This change of thinking: from technology being separate from our bodies, to being a part of our bodies may allow our ancient language to evolve to the next level.

This weekly science goes through some of the new technologies that may exist in the near future, and do exist right now for specialist organizations like the military, or scientific exploration (NASA for example). Here is a list of those technologies”

  • Thought Controlled Vehicles (more on this language changing technology later)
  • 3D Augmented Reality (minimizes visual fatigue, and overlay computer generated images right on to the real world images your eye sees)
  • New Generation of Urban Wind Turbines
  • 3D printed shark skins for less resistance when swimming
  • Smart T-Shirt (monitors body heart rate, breathing, and other stuff too)
  • Flexible Robotic Arms (can quickly change shape to catch objects for example)
  • Artificial Neural Networks (a new tool to analyze complex things & patterns)
  • Plastics that can repair themselves
  • Batteries that turn waste heat into energy
  • Real Time Translators

We mostly think of technology as separate from ourselves, but as our clothing tells us what mood we are in, and how our body is reacting; and we can operate 3D overlays onto the real world, actual devices, or vehicles with our minds—or simply by using hand signals for example—we might eventually stop seeing our devices as separate from our bodies, they will become part of our senses, and the way we communicate with people.

If our technology becomes of our senses, and the way we communicate, then it is well known that computers can process an amazing amount of information, and that would indicate that it is now possible to design a non-interpretable language (can only be interpreted in one way) or Descriptive Universal Language that could be used in everyday conversation.

The annoyance that is displayed in the urban dictionary of arguing over semantics would no longer be a problem, things would only have one meaning.

Is it possible to produce a non-interpretable language (can only be interpreted in one way) or Descriptive Universal Language, well The Venus Project feels it is possible, but from experience such a language requires a lot of discipline to use, but perhaps someone that has grown up with such a language from birth might find it easy to use. With computers and technology, such a language would be much easier to use, as our memory, and possibly time in formulating a sentence would be less.

This is the website that discusses Wearable Computers Will Transform Language [website]: http://spectrum.ieee.org/consumer-electronics/portable-devices/wearable-computers-will-transform-language and not only to think of technology as being a part of our bodies, but will open up new ways for us to communicate with each other.

It only takes a shift in perception—that computers are not separate from us, but are a part of our bodies—to allow for a new era in the way we see our world and communicate with each other. Even more significant is that our ancient language may evolve into a new form (possibly non-interpretable language—can only be interpreted in one way—or Descriptive Universal Language) as we have access to more energy and information.

Terms used here defined

Non-interpretable language: language that can only be interpreted in one way [1], and because this word “interpreted language” had a meaning that is used with computers, it might be wiser to use “descriptive universal language.”

Interpretable language: A language that can be interpreted in more then one way [2].

The Language of Science
The communication of ideas and information usually starts with language, but when you see how misunderstood you may be in daily life, you know this can be a confusing task. Our everyday language evolved through centuries of cultural change and unfortunately, it is difficult to resolve conflicting ideas by using it. In most instances, because of varying backgrounds and life experiences, the same word can have different meanings for different people. One’s thoughts may be interpreted differently by others even when using the same language. But there is a language that is easily understood by many, even in different parts of the world. This language has a high degree of physical
correlation with the real world. There is little to no confusion in it. In different scientific fields such as engineering, mathematics, chemistry, and other technical areas, we have the nearest thing to a descriptive universal language that leaves little room for one’s own unique interpretation. For instance, if a blueprint for an automobile is given to any technologically developed society anywhere in the world, regardless of political or religious belief, the finished product will be the same. This language was deliberately designed as a more appropriate way to state a problem. It is nearly free of vague interpretations and ambiguities. Many of the great technical strides made in our modern day would have been unattainable without this improved communication. Without a common descriptive language, we would have been unable to prevent diseases, increase crop yields, talk over thousands of miles, or build bridges, dams, transportation systems, and the many other technological marvels of this computerized age. Applying and understanding General Semantics is essential to improving communication. Semantics has been defined in many different ways. Briefly, it is an attempt to improve communication through the careful use of language. For example, terms like “Arab”, “Jew”, or “Irishman” have slightly different meanings to different people. Similar words have various meanings depending on differences in background and experience. This also applies to words like understanding, conscience, democracy, reality, love, etc. To have intelligent discussions using certain words, it is essential to ask what one means by the words being used. If one wishes to communicate in a meaningful way, it is best to have people define their terms. Semantics is just one instrument that may help improve communication. A useful book for this subject is Tyranny of Words by Stuart Chase.

[2] interpretable language

Please see semantics [3] for information of how this word crosses over into computer languages.

This word is used for computers, a language (often highly structured) is interpreted into machine code or binary code (zeros and ones).

however language that can be interpreted is defined here. The definition of interpret is:

interpret   in·ter·pret    [in-tur-prit]
verb (used with object)
1. to give or provide the meaning of; explain; explicate; elucidate: to interpret the hidden meaning of a parable.
2. to construe or understand in a particular way: to interpret a reply as favorable.
3. to bring out the meaning of (a dramatic work, music, etc.) by performance or execution.
4. to perform or render (a song, role in a play, etc.) according to one’s own understanding or sensitivity: The actor interpreted Lear as a weak, pitiful old man.
5. to translate orally.
7. to translate what is said in a foreign language.
8. to explain something; give an explanation.

Even if people speak the same language, they might interpret the same sentence in different ways. From interacting with others, the author has discovered that this field is called Semantics [3]

[3] Semantics

Semantics, as defined in the urban dictionary (will not be mentioned here) involves a lot a swearing and ends with “I will not argue the stupid meanings of words with you!”

Perhaps semantics has a bad name, especially in the online environment where people want to communicate rather then spend time arguing about what the communication meant. At least that seems to be the case when you check out the urban dictionary meanings in 2014.

semantics (sɪˈmæntɪks)
n (functioning as singular)
1. (Linguistics) the branch of linguistics that deals with the study of meaning, changes in meaning, and the principles that govern the relationship between sentences or words and their meanings
2. (Logic) the study of the relationships between signs and symbols and what they represent
3. (Logic) logic
a. the study of interpretations of a formal theory
b. the study of the relationship between the structure of a theory and its subject matter
c. (of a formal theory) the principles that determine the truth or falsehood of sentences within the theory, and the references of its terms
seˈmanticist n

From wiki: Semantics

Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikós, “significant”)[1][2] is the study of meaning. It focuses on the relation between signifiers, like words, phrases, signs, and symbols, and what they stand for, their denotation. Linguistic semantics is the study of meaning that is used for understanding human expression through language. Other forms of semantics include the semantics of programming languages, formal logics, and semiotics.

[5] Language must have meaning in it (descriptive universal language)

“The majority of the people of the world today are unsane, not insane, unsane meaning having been exposed to methods of evaluation that have long rendered obsolete, our language in the future will change to a saner language where we have no argument in it, ‘can there be such a language?’ there is, when engineers talk to each other, it’s not subject to interpretation, they use math, they use descriptive systems, if I interpreted what another engineer said in the way I think he meant it: you couldn’t build bridges, dams, power transmission lines. The language has to have meaning” – Jacque Fresco
