In trying to write this blog in English I hope finally able to start jabber a few words in this language. I will mobilise various tools for that my text be in accordance with the rules of grammar and spelling. Thanks for your corrections and comments.

Hypothesis 1


J'ai envie de suggérer l'hypothèse selon laquelle le langage a une structure fractale.

Oh! I feel that it is a very difficult subject.

Momo said...

Krn, really ? But I didn't want scare you.

How are you ?

doreus said...

Interesting hypothesis. How do you make the case for it?

krn said...

Don't worry, Momo, I am not afraid.
I just wonder how we could make this hypothesis being true.

krn said...

Do you mean that every word can be replaced by a sentence every word of which in his turn can be replaced ?

krn said...

If it was true, would be enough a word for writing whole pages and conversely, we could reduce a book in a single word.

krn said...

With the tiredness , I am certainly going to write something stupid, but if every element can be replaced by three in the following scale, that can be :

1) BOOK

2) CHAPTER CHAPTER CHAPTER

3) page page page page page page page page page

4) word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word word.

krn said...

It is too late for that exercice.
I wish you a magnificent night.
Tenderly yours.

Momo said...

You are absolutely right, krn. Your hypothesis is very clever and funny. I like !

I thought rather at synapses, because a synapse is the junction between two neurons, and I think the synapse look like the discovery of America and the Neolithic. It's alway a kind of meeting, a collision between two things.

Momo said...

I wish you a magnificent night too, krn.

Sweet night, my dear krn.

I found, by accident, this sentence "[Mon Seigneur] le Connaisseur de l'inconnu. Rien ne lui échappe fût-il du poids d'un atome dans les cieux comme sur la terre. Et rien n'existe de plus petit ni de plus grand, qui ne soit inscrit dans un livre explicite". (Coran, 34 : 3)

Momo said...

"Si la mer se faisait d'encre pour écrire le langage de Dieu, elle s'y épuiserait, même si nous en doublions l'étendue, avant que ne s'épuisât le langage".

Proverbe Islamique

Momo said...

"Si la mer se changeait en encre pour écrire les paroles de Dieu, la mer se tarirait avant que ne tarissent les paroles de Dieu, quand même nous y emploierions une autre mer pareille".

krn said...

Momo, there is euphoria in what you say. I fell as if I was in the grip of ecstasy.
We are so small and we take ourselves for the center of the world...

krn said...

I meant, human feel like the center of the universe.
Pure Vanity, nothing else !

Momo said...

In some way, we are at the same time the center of the univers, but also in the periphery. I think the former theorie wich said that we are at the centre of the universe isn't totally wrong, because now we know that all is in the centre.

krn said...

Everything is everywhere.

Momo said...

What you say, it's a fractal theory !

krn said...

I am happy to hear it (I can hear, enven in english)
I had thought of fractales curves in no more than three dimensions.

Momo said...

Why no more than three dimensions ?

Hum.. I'm not sure I have understood.

Momo said...

What does you can hear ? My voice ?

krn said...

Yes, I hear your voice. It is not very different. just slower.

krn said...

We should be obliged to speak and not only to write.

krn said...

Fractal curve in two dimensions.

krn said...

Fractal curve in three dimensions.

Momo said...

Hooo, what a beautiful and interesting links, krn.

You don't like write ?

krn said...

Momo, I like very much write, I am often alone, so I must write, I can't speak.
I must thank you, Momo, writing in your blog makes me remember how to speak (write) english. I am better than I was last year.

Momo said...

Ho, what you said, krn, honored me a lot !!!

Me too, I'm in process of quickly progress, for instance, I less need to use translation machine, I can say even that this tool put me often in the wrong way.

krn said...

A machine cannot understand the subtleties of the language. It is the origin of incomprehensions.

Momo said...

But, the machine helped me a lot until there. It's thank to machine that we have could communicate in English in this blog. I just want say that currently my English level has anymore need the machine.

But, sometimes, I wonder if is good for you communicate with somebody who don't write very well.

krn said...

I have good bases in English, Momo. I spoke easily long ago.

When I worked in Scandinavia, I could speak only in English. I miss practice, that's all.

Momo said...

In other words, my clumsiness don't disturb you ?

krn said...

Never, Momo, and you learn me now that word that I ignored, clumsiness. You are very good.

krn said...

I really do think your approach is the best approach to learn english.
I find you very brave, your efforts will be rewarded and I also take advantage of it.

Thank you so much for all that you've giving me only with this blog. I don't tell about your kindness, which is great.

Momo, you've got to be a winner there. Keep on doing what you're doing.

Momo said...

Yes,"clumsiness" is a new word to me too.

And, thank to your encouragements, krn, you are make live this blog, and you are my co-author also.

Thanks very much, krn.

You are a delight.

krn said...

A delight? It is more that my modesty can bear. You give me too much importance. The real driving force is you, Momo.
Doréus is a faithful friend and I am delighted (to take your word) to participate.

doreus said...

Oh! Here I appear! I agree that this blog was a great initiative and a wonderful way for you (Momo) to become more proficient in English. You have made great strides (improvement) since last year.

Momo said...

Yes, Doreus, I agree. I'm in progress, specially if we know that I started learning at zero level. But I need still learning to listen and talk.

It's incredible, because I less and less need the translation machine, for instance, I wrote this sentence almost alone, without assistance (it's not totally true).

krn said...

Nevertheless, Momo, I am sure that you are able to do it without help.

Momo said...

Holala, it's more that my modesty can bear :-)

krn said...

Oh, it seems to me that I have already read this stupidity somewhere...

krn said...

But it is a good sentence, you can place it whenever you want.

Momo said...

Yes, don't forget that I'm in process of learn English, repetition is the guaranties of the memory. "Bear" is the word that I learn thanks to you today.

krn said...

Your smile had let with me think of a joke. Moreover, I laughed.
In fact I know that you are right.

"I did not well understand, can you repeat more slowly please ?"

That's the first sentence I learnt when I went in Great Brittain. It often helped me.

krn said...

I meant : Your smile had let me with the think of a joke.

I must learn to look at my keyboard, not to write too quickly.

Momo said...

But, without the smile, you would have thought what ?

Why the fact to write too quickly is a problem ?

You are lucky to write quickly.

krn said...

I am back. I had to shut my office. The week is over.
I am now at home.
No I am not lucky, I am too nervous.
When I work, I have no time, so, as I want to do several things in the same time, I must to go quickly and I write badly, because I don't see what I do.
My occular disease is growing larger and I am not yet used to that new stain.

krn said...

Even without the smile, I would have laugh, Momo.

Momo said...

What does you mean here ? : "I am not yet used to that new stain."

krn said...

I mean that a part of my retina which was not yet affected is now blurred.

I thus have one another lack in my vision, it is a supplementary spot.
It's that spot that I called stain.
It's not so dark, it's a light red stain, but I don't see through it.

Momo said...

But, this is a new thing into your eyes ?

I hope isn't serious.

I'll go to cold bathing, krn, because I'm little sad.

In my come back I hope that I will be better.

I met another person who goes any day to bathing into the lake, to fight his post-traumatic disease.

Is it a random ?

His ex girl-friend planted him a knife in his belly, and he went to the hospital with the guts outside.

Now, he is a very sad man.

See you latest.

krn said...

What a horror! How can she be also unsociable ? I hope that she was punished. That man could have been killed. That's absolutely crazy.

I sincerely hope that you feel better this evening after bathing in the lake.

Your level of energy is higher when the water of the lake can make slide its frozen caress on you. The water is énergisante, it surrounds you with this beautiful complete aura which should always be yours.

I have difficulty in reading, this evening. I am going to rest, maybe I forced my sight too much.
I am going to pray "Notre Dame de la Clarté" to protect what stays of my sight, what is precious to me to be able to communicate.

Don't be angry at me not to stay with you this evening and what is most important, don't be sad, I promise you to return tomorrow.
I need to shut my eyes. I'll think of you, my handsome friend.
Tenderly yours.

Momo said...

I wish you a good rest, my dear krn.

Momo said...

I prayers to that all your wishes are granted.

krn said...

You mean : "I pray so that all your wishes are granted"
Thank you, Momo, I do it too.

krn said...

To pray is to make prayers.
The fountain of "Notre-Dame de la Clarté" here

Momo said...

I know this fountain, you showed it some months ago in your blog. It's beautiful !

krn said...

I am loosing my head. I'll try not to show this fountain to you a third time.

I wonder if I shoudn't go there soon.
