Etymology App

Old book

Etymology: etymology n. (pl. etymologies) an account of the origins and the developments in meaning of a word. – DERIVATIVES etymological adj. etymologically adv. etymologist n. etymologize (or etymologise) v. – ORIGIN ME: from OFr. ethimologie, via L. from Gk etumologia, from etumologos student of etymology, from etumon, neut. sing. of etumos true’.
etymology noun derivation, word history, development, origin, source

derivation n. 1) the deriving of something from a source or origin. 2) the formation of a word from another word or from a root in the same or another language. – DERIVATIVES derivational adj

The etymology app should work in conjunction with the dictionary app. Sometimes the history of a word gives well needed meaning for complete understand. A great example is the word “Guilty”. What does it mean?

guilty adjective 1) the guilty party culpable, to blame, at fault, in the wrong, blameworthy, responsible; erring, errant, delinquent, offending, sinful, criminal; archaic peccant. 2) I still feel guilty about it ashamed, guilt-ridden, conscience-stricken, remorseful, sorry, contrite, repentant, penitent, regretful, rueful, abashed, shamefaced, sheepish, hangdog; in sackcloth and ashes. -OPPOSITES innocent, unrepentant.guilty adj. (guiltier, guiltiest) 1) (often guilty of) culpable of a specified wrongdoing. justly chargeable with a particular fault or error. 2) having or showing a feeling of guilt: a guilty conscience. – DERIVATIVES guiltily adv. guiltiness n.

If we are only looking at this in a non-legal sense, one would guess it’s accurate. However, if one dwells deeper with Etymology of the word, a different meaning is found. “To pay” hence guilty or not guilty (not to pay) vs guilty or innocence.

innocent adj. 1) not guilty of a crime or offence.  not responsible or directly involved: an innocent bystander. 2) free from moral wrong; not corrupted. 3) not intended to cause offence; harmless. 4) (innocent of) without experience or knowledge of: a man innocent of war’s cruelties.  without; lacking. n. an innocent person. – DERIVATIVES innocence n. innocency n. (archaic). innocently adv. – ORIGIN ME: from OFr., or from L. innocent- not harming, from in- not + nocere to hurt.

Another good example is the word bench, the one a judge sits on.

bench  n. 1) a long seat for more than one person. 2) a long, sturdy work table in a workshop or laboratory. 3) (the bench) the office of judge or magistrate.  a judge or magistrate presiding over a particular case. 4) (the bench) a seat at the side of a sports field for coaches and players not taking part in a game. 5) a platform on which dogs are exhibited at shows. v. 1) exhibit (a dog) at a show. 2) N. Amer. withdraw (a sports player) from play. – ORIGIN OE benc, of Gmc origin; see word history at bank.

Bank? Hmmm…sounds like that needs some more exploring. Is that just a coincidence…I think not.

If everything is commerce, does it not now make more sense when a judge asks “how do you plead?” One capacity to learn is directly correlated to their ability to understand the meaning of words. This is also a must have app. While it may not be needed/used as much as the dictionary app, it is a vital tool in one’s apps.

Now some dictionaries come with etymology (usually the unabridged dictionaries). However, having a separate book may have its advantages as the history of a word is not always needed.

    Hi Community,
    My name is Stephen. I want to say first that I was heavily influenced in a positive way after listening to the interview Curt and Damon gave on Radio 3Fourteen. I’m not working right now and have been trying to fill up my days reading and listening to as many interviews on topics that I think will be beneficial to me as I can. Before I can really understand how all of the material this site has to offer works, I think it is important that I accept the fact that most of the beliefs that I have held since birth are false and to let myself know that it is OK that I may not understand the true nature of reality just yet. It is very exciting to hear from others who understand how the system we find ourselves apart of actually works and how we can manipulate it from the inside in the same manner that the money masters manipulate it to control us.

    I will say that I am new to all of this information and am still trying to understand this stuff at a level that allows me to communicate my thoughts on the economic system with eloquence and patience when talking to others. (especially my family)

    On Etymology. The interview on 3Fourteen posted right underneath the E.T. interview is by a guy named Spencer Barclay. If I understood him correctly, he was explaining how people can send back commercial bills to the creditor and the account will be paid. He says that the bill is actually the “currency” that pays for the bill. The definition he gives for currency is – an ‘item’ that circulates as a medium of exchange. He then gives the definition of an ‘item’ from Black’s Law Dictionary.

    Item – promise or an order to pay.

    So he says that because the bill is an ‘order to pay’ it is actually the ‘currency’ that can be sent to the creditor to pay for the bill.

    Like I said, I am at the beginning stages of learning and understanding how this works but I know there must be something to it when I hear someone else say that they have tried it and it worked.

    Nothing is more frustrating than hearing your loved ones talk about bills and taxes, knowing that there is an alternative solution, but not yet having all the knowledge that is required to start implementing the solution.(“Like a splinter in my mind”) It seems like learning about this info at the interview level is only the tip of the iceberg and I look forward to staying on the path of studying and gathering as much information as I can. I appreciate the fact that it won’t take me five years because there were others before me who took the time to condense what they have learned so those of us in the dark on these things can catch up.

    Knowing that the bills that my family and I are getting in the mail can be sent back as payment is serious motivation for me to pick up a copy of Webster’s dictionary and start comparing it with Black’s Law dictionary. I have seen in certain documentaries and heard in other interviews that there is a difference between natural person and artificial person but I will admit I do not fully understand how that info can help me yet. Both my parent’s and my fiancé’s parents are financially strapped right now and I plan on learning what I can about the etymology of terms and some of the techniques I could use to get us back on our feet. If anyone has any words of encouragement or some constructive criticism I would love to hear your feedback.

      I’m not sure what we said that made you heavily influenced in a positive way but I’m glad you enjoyed the interview. And Spencer and I work together often, we’re on the same page with a lot of things. I always say words mean shit and if we don’t know what they mean, then we are limited. I heard a quote from someone I was learning Portuguese from. “Die grenzen meiner sprache sind die grenzen meiner welt.” “The limits of my language are the limits of my world”
      -Ludwig Wittgenstein Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1922)

      Every new world (sub-culture) you go into, you will always pick up a new language. Words are so important yet people carelessly butcher them because they’re too lazy to learn their means instead of making up their own definitions. It’s really a tragedy.

      In terms of you and your family’s debt, just as the banks can walk away from debts and clear them up, so can we. We have so much power once we take it back. We’ve been giving it away most of our lives. But it’s time to seize control of our lives. We have a lot of audios that you’d like in the conference call section of the site. And you can always join in on the live calls every other Wednesday currently. We cover just about everything and the people will help come up with ideas to remedy your situations. You just have to ask. The number of resources are many here. Dig into the E.T. Starter Kit and that will open your mind up to more possibilities too.

        Thank you for your reply. I really appreciate it. What I took from the interview that I have benefited from was the idea that business principles and life principles are the same, except for the fact that one deals with money and one does not. It may seem like an obvious idea but I think a lot of people do not have experience as an entrepreneur or manager or boss at work. A lot of people just have a job and do their responsibilities which are handed to them by someone else. I know I did and most of my family members do. It has been about three weeks since I first heard the interview and my days have been a lot more productive. I really started thinking like the manager of my own life and started putting down goals and intentions on paper and organizing my day as if I was clocking in for an eight hour shift. Keeping in mind that my ‘business’ is my life and that if I want real freedom I have to mind my own ‘business’, has really sped up the process of getting my shit together. Thanks for your advice. I Plan on going through the rest of the articles and conference calls and taking a look at the starter kit as well. If I have any questions I will be sure to ask.

          I’m glad you understand the message and have the background to appreciate it. The concept is very simple in nature. Mind your own business, pay yourself first, etc. If we put the same energy we put in to a meaningless into ourselves, we won’t be at that meaningless-life-consuming job much longer! Bravo Stephen! Life only get’s better the more in control you become.

            Thank you. I heard a researcher named Neil Kramer say on a Red Ice interview – on the control system and how it impacts our lives –

            “The control lies within ourselves and the more we blame someone else for our situation, the worse that control gets.”

          • 1stTrustee | February 15, 2013 at 11:46 #

            Ha. I know Neil too. Him, Spenc and I were all together at Eciti Ranch a few months back.

    I have a hard time accepting that the word “guilty”, when used in a legal context really SECRETLY means “will you pay?”. I have a harder time accepting that if you were to plead guilty, that you would be seen as “in honor” and your punishment less severe (unless part of a plea bargain, where such terms are explicitly stated). I once erroneously held the belief that in order to be good at this commercial game, I should use words as a tool to be manipulated in order to win (although, I still am cautious about lawyers using this particular trick, which is easily countered). If we were to go back to the linguistic principle that words are arbitrary unless agreed upon by the parties using those words, then we can easily see that using secret words while trying to pull one over on the other party is incorrect, and can be countered by simply forcing the user to define the meaning of whatever word is being used. If “guilty”, in common parlance AND law, currently means that one is to blame for a wrongdoing (I don’t have my black’s at the moment, but any online legal dictionary should support this as the current meaning of “guilty”), then it seems that one would require an inferential leap to support the alleged centuries-old meaning of the word to be “willing to pay”. If law is a specific language, isn’t it incorrect to make such presumptions without question?
    This brings me to my final question – does anyone have an experience in which they personally questioned a judge about the meaning of the word “guilty”, or other evidence that would support that it really means “I am willing to pay” in this millennium?
