"The suspicion does not appear improbable that the progenitors of man, either the males or females or both sexes, before they had acquired the power of expressing their mutual love in articulate language, endevoured to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm"
People were using music to communicate prior to using language, not exactly that age old theory that our ancestors were a bunch of cavemen eh? This book, well this chapter is going to explore how language originated, it wasn't the human language that we are accustomed to...grunting...groaning...(Like Ron Jeremy...LOL) there is still speculation even today about what are the origins of language and how did it come about....it is thought that primitive words were imitations of the natural sounds that men and women heard around them...bang, boom, buzz, hiss, bow wow wow, ouch...all this could be the beginnings of language origins.
So its been a busy weekend...all started really on Friday when i went to Acadia U to pick up, "The Study of Language"..me and Justin went...the poor Tower...i dunno..she is falling apart, im so so suprised the ol wrecking ball hasn't sailed through it yet...is Cutten (Sluttin Cutten they used to call it...) still closed? Does anyone know what happens at Acadia U?!?!?! Even the letters of the Tower are falling off...i finally did pick up a "Acadia Tower" t-shirt...only $12 and we did grab some grub at Joe's Food Emporium..this time i grabbed an "Old English Sub"....used to order those all the time back in 98..first year...wet behind the ears i was then... the dark days..the Moolah days...needless to say i've learned since then...or have i?
"People often conform from a desire to achieve a sense of security within a group—typically a group that is of a similar age, culture, religion, or educational status. Any unwillingness to conform carries with it the very real risk of social rejection. In this respect, conformity can be seen as a safe means of avoiding bullying or deflecting criticism from peers. Conformity is often associated with adolescence and youth culture, but it affects humans of all ages."
"Although peer pressure may be viewed as a negative trait, conformity can have either good or bad effects depending on the situation. Driving safely on the correct side of the road is a beneficial example of conformity. Conformity influences the formation and maintenance of social norms and allows society to function smoothly and predictably. Because conformity is a group phenomenon, such factors as group size, unanimity, cohesion, status, prior commitment, and public opinion all help to determine the level of conformity an individual will display."
Corrosion of Conformity is a good band...just to let you know......old school...
