What is Earth Language (EL)?

EL is a common auxiliary way of thinking and communication method that aims at the vibrant sustainability of global society.

Humans think in language. Since the primitive age, people have nurtured language with culture and thought through words. The culture created by climate and people's experiences are diverse all over the world. The position, direction, and character of the central axis of traditional thinking varies.

Because of the deep-rooted tradition, each center axis can not be given over to others, and the battles and wars have never stopped.
What if we all had two axes of thought as an ellipse?
One is the axis of each traditional culture, and the second is the common axis which is based on the order of the universe. If people are using "elliptical thinking" with the two-axes, two centrality become popular, it will open up a tolerant world in which everyone is equally connected by the common axis and diversity is accepted while maintaining the axis of locality and individuality.

Humans have survived by balancing with both hands and feet. In terms of thinking, if you have multiple axes, you could stabilize yourself and the whole society will also go toward harmony.

EL is a concrete plan for the auxiliary language that should be the second axis of "Elliptical Thinking."

Differences between Earth Language and traditional languages

EL is useful to supplement the transmission elements that are not possible with traditional languages. Therefore, it does not mean anything if the system is in the same way as one of the traditional languages like other artificial languages in the past.

The following three items are important to work as the real Earth Language.

1. Work as an objective standard for images, mediating between different cultures

As a standard measure, the system shouldn't be easily changed. Our universe is made up of immutable elements, whether visible or invisible. The universe is constantly changing, but the changes are caused by differences in the way immutable elements are connected. The EL system is learned in this universe (earth nature). We will continue to capture all things by symbols of universal and immutable elements for humans and changes of their connection.

The words of the voice disappear as soon as they are uttered, but the visual "shape" is kept for a long time. In contrast to traditional languages based on phonetic symbols and culture, the EL system remains universally unchanged by being based on the "shape" of the visual symbol (character) and the order of the earth's nature.

2. Even if EL becomes popular, it does not break any traditional languages, and coexists while growing up together

An EL symbol has a syllable name, which can also be used to convey symbols. However, if you read the contents of the symbol directly in your mother language, you can use it as an extension of your mother language. And even if EL becomes popular, there is no worry of losing each mother language.
The basic symbol of EL is a simple form of the energy of the meaning or a hieroglyphic character. Simplified picture-like characters, such as "tree, grass, flower, hand, foot, and face" can help young children learn their mother language.

If children in the world shared the same memory of the picture-like characters, it would be a little window opening on the walls between different peoples. As they grow up, they may want to take their hands to enhance EL even more.

3. Help thinking and communication with new features that are not available in traditional languages

3-1 The ability to organize information

At present, excessive increases in the amount of information and vocabularies make it difficult to see the overall picture and relationships in the world.
In the EL plan of the structure which learns from nature, the character itself shows the connection of the main elements of a meaning, and develops while organizing information. (Base-overlays in EL)

There are also reasonable ways of shortening expressions and are prepared to create special symbols such as logos and ciphers that distinguish them from general characters personally. (Usages of EL brackets)

3-2 Scientific phonetic transcription

Currently, no traditional language can satisfy all of the sounds of every human language. Therefore, even proper nouns can be difficult to convey between different cultures.
EL symbols are usually used as ideographs, but transmission also requires speech notation, such as names. Therefore, EL also has a phonetic system that distinguishes vocal sounds at the same level as the International Phonetic Alphabet but with fewer symbols and in a more easily understandable way, by partially turning the function from ideographs to phonetics. (EL Phonetic System)
This system helps to unify the pronunciation of a proper noun into the original way, to teach pronunciation in foreign languages, and also to create a vocal art.

3-3  Switchable to various transmission methods corresponding to differences in physical abilities and environments

Current sign language and Braille are different for each country. Even if you learn a foreign language, you can't use its sign language and Braille without newly remembering them forevermore.
The shape of the basic EL symbol assumed to be used as overlay is very simple. Therefore, as long as you have basic knowledge of EL, you can quickly choose the best communication way to suit the situation, such as making the symbol shape with a hand or whole body, writing a symbol in the other's palm to convey it to his sense of touch, pronouncing the name of the symbol, and showing it with its font number or ASCII.
(The EL Multi-method System)
"Hello" hand-sign in EL:
(more details of "hello")
EL is trying to bring the world where we can communicate no matter where and when it happens.

3-4 Stimulating creativity

Creation is born with a new combination of immutable elements. The EL bases overlay system can accidentally find a new concept and it might bring up an unexpected creation.
Compact expressions and hieroglyphs make writing on maps and brain-maps cleaner, stronger and easier to see, and empower international collaboration and advertising.
The global distribution of EL takes time, but as we foster and interact together, we will notice differences in the axis of culture and respect each other to advance understanding.

When people raise something together, they usually try to open their mind. It is the first step to connect the world into one.
