Pattern of Sales of My Book

I have been watching the sales of my book since last fall on Amazon.com. Its sales rank today had a similar pattern it had last fall. This pattern changes every three weeks. Its rank thus moves from 70-90 thousands to over a million every three weeks. When thinking about this regular pattern and knowing my book, I speculate that the study of my book has been very difficult for a single person and that groups of people are studying it. However, I believe a single person can study my book if that person understands the nature of symbolic languages. Thus, a single student will be helped if they read my discussion of symbolic languages beginning on my blog dated 2/23/07. This beginning has 11 blogs and ends with a final blog on 3/14/07

    George,

    I have read the blogs you refered to. My question still is: what do you mean by "symbolic languages"?

    Maybe you should translate an English sentence (for example "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog") into one of those symbolic languages. I think that would help.

    kirk jones,

    As the 1920 linguists discovered 'sense-data are primarily symbolic.' The importance of this discovery is its application to science, which is the search for proven truths with the scientific method. So, the symbolic languages are basically the languages for science.

    The other language is the 'talk language.' Its purpose is to build social cultures and nations. The talk language is also called the 'national language'

    George

    I do not know what the statement 'the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' means. So, it is not a symbolic language. It might be a talk language to communicate from one person to another.

    The language problem is to unify science with talk. A problem occurs when symbolic languages are created out of talk language by our life scientists.

    George,

    It is still not clear to me. You wrote:

    "As the 1920 linguists discovered 'sense-data are primarily symbolic.' The importance of this discovery is its application to science, which is the search for proven truths with the scientific method. So, the symbolic languages are basically the languages for science."

    1. What are the names of those 1920 linguists?
    2. Could you provide the source of the quote 'sense-data are primarily symbolic'?
    3. Please be more specific. Which symbolic language is used for which science?

    To my knowledge every American scientist uses English. All the NASA scientists who managed to get a rocket to the moon used English.

    kirk jones,

    The personalities involved in the 1920s discovery were Ogden, Richards, Eaton, Cassirer, Noack, Carnap, Stern, Whitehead, et al. All names are found on p. 21-22 of "Philosophy In A New key" by Susanne Langer.

    I see two symbolic languages: talk and science. The talk language works but not good. The science language is precise because the meanings of the symbols are determined by laws of nature. The physical sciences are in great shape. But all 'life sciences' are lost in Aristotles philosophy, concept definition, logic, and categorical reasoning.

    I hope these words help.

    George,

    Thanks, but your writings continue to be very chaotic. First you wrote:

    "So, the symbolic languages are basically the languages for science. The other language is the talk language".

    Then you wrote:

    "I see two symbolic languages: talk and science."

    Do you spot the contradiction? First you claim there are two separate things: the symbolic languages and the talk language. Then you say the talk language is actually one of the symbolic languages.

    Unfortunately, these severe inconsistencies pervade everything you write. And by the way, my second question remains as yet unanswered.

    Mr. George Shollenberger

    Harvard University is preparing its annual cycle of science conferences, which are to be held later this year. On behalf of the organizing committee I would like to invite you to participate in what surely will be one of the highlights: a series of conferences entitled "Cranks and crackpots: the fascinating minds of pseudoscientists".

    Mr. Gene Ray (well known for his time cube theory) has already confirmed his participation, and so have two self-acclaimed inventors of the perpetuum mobile. We are also proud to announce that Mr. David Icke will conduct a lecture on his shape-shifting reptilians theory.

    I chose this way of contacting you because I failed to find an e-mail address. Would it be possible for you to confirm within a week whether you will do us the honor of holding a lecture on your scientific proof of God? Many thanks in advance,

    Howard Fisher

    kirk jones,

    Yes I should not have shortened 'talk and science.'

    I say that only two symbolic languages exist. One is the talk symbolic language and the other is the sience symbolic language. The talk symbolic language is the national language that all citizens use. The science symbolic language is the science languages we used to search for truths.

    The second was answered when I identified Langer's book.

    George

    howard fisher (orMark Chu-carroll,

    As one see, Harvard University and the Good Math, Bad Math University are again showing their ignorance in basics and in the sciences. When are you guys going to grow up?
