The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis From George Orwell's The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis theorizes that thoughts and behavior are determined (or are at least partially influenced) by language. If true in its strongest sense, the sinister possibility of a culture controlled by Newspeak or some other language is not just science fiction. Since its inception in the 1920s and 1930s, the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis has caused controversy and spawned research in a variety of disciplines including linguistics, psychology, philosophy, anthropology, and education. To this day it has not been completely disputed or defended, but has continued to intrigue researchers around the world.
Edward Sapir and Benjamin Lee Whorf brought attention to the relationship between language, thought, and culture. Neither of them formally wrote the hypothesis nor supported it with empirical evidence, but through a thorough study of their writings about linguistics, researchers have found two main ideas. First, a theory of linguistic determinism that states that the language you speak determines the way that you will interpret the world around you. Second, a weaker theory of linguistic relativism that states that language merely influences your thoughts about the real world.
Edward Sapir studied the research of Wilhelm von Humboldt. About one hundred years before Sapir published his linguistic theories, Humboldt wrote in

104. Concept Of Space And Time In Special Relativity
Space and Time in Special relativity. The modified. This java applet invites you to the world of space and time in special relativity.
Space and Time in Special Relativity The special theory of relativity is the result of two postulates:
    The laws of physics are the same in all inertial reference frames.
      Extention from the Newtonian principle of relativity:
        the laws of mechanics are the same for all observers in uniform motion.
      The speed of light in empty space is the same for all inertial frames.
        The speed of an object depends on the reference frame,
          however the speed of light in space is the same.
        From the above two postulates, our understanding of space and time has to be modified. This java applet invites you to the world of space and time in special relativity.
      There are two devices that utilize photons to measure time differences (some kind of clock).
        A mirror will reflect the photon when it reaches the top or bottom of the device. First, press Start button to begin the animation. Both devices are synchronized.

Return to Honors 400 THE JOURNAL OF PHILOSOPHY VOLUME LXV, No. 7, APRIL 4, 1968
I listened to Dewey on Art as Experience when I was a grad­uate student in the spring of 1931. Dewey was then at Harvard as the first William James Lecturer. I am proud now to be at Columbia as the first John Dewey Lecturer. Philosophically I am bound to Dewey by the naturalism that dom­inated his last three decades. With Dewey I hold that knowledge, mind, and meaning are part of the same world that they have to do with, and that they are to be studied in the same empirical spirit that animates natural science. There is no place for a prior philosophy. When a naturalistic philosopher addresses himself to the philos­ophy of mind, he is apt to talk of language. Meanings are, first and foremost, meanings of language. Language is a social art which we all acquire on the evidence solely of other people's overt behavior under publicly recognizable circumstances. Meanings, therefore, those very models of mental entities, end up as grist for the behavior­ist's mill. Dewey was explicit on the point: "Meaning ... is not a psychic existence; it is primarily a property of behavior." Once we appreciate the institution of language in these terms, we see that there cannot be, in any useful sense, a private language. This point was stressed by Dewey in the twenties. "Soliloquy," he wrote, "is the product and reflex of converse with others" (170). Farther along he expanded the point thus: "Language is specifically a mode o£ interaction of at least two beings, a speaker and a hearer; it pre­supposes an organized group to which these creatures belong, and from whom they have acquired their habits a£ speech. It is therefore a relationship" (185). Years later, Wittgenstein likewise rejected pri­vate language. When Dewey was writing in this naturalistic vein, Wittgenstein still held his copy theory of language.

111. [gr-qc/9605010] Cosmic Topology
General relativity does not allow one to specify the topology of space, leaving the possibility that space is multi rather than simply- connected. This paper reviews the mathematical properties of multi-connected spaces, and the different tools to classify them and to analyse their properties.

112. Cosmic Commode
A proposed resolution of general relativity theory and an alternative to the Big Bang theory of cosmological creation.
Cosmic Commode cosmology views gravity as it is defined by Machian-Einsteinian relativity: a ubiquitous curvature of space-time in the presence of matter and/or energy. Gravity itself is not a force.... It is geometry.... and the universe ain t expanding, it s just curved a funny way.

    The purpose of this repository is to show compact examples of the kind of codes that we develop in Numerical Relativity. Because of their complexity, the full Einstein Equations take much more work (check the H3expresso code ), but the basic ideas and coding paradims can be found here. Over time, more codes will be available here. Currently, there is only one (transport in 3D).

    General relativity
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    General relativity (GR) or General relativity theory (GRT) is the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in . The conceptual core of general relativity, from which its other consequences largely follow, is the Principle of Equivalence , which describes gravitation and acceleration as different perspectives of the same thing, and which was originally stated by Einstein in 1907 as:
    We shall therefore assume the complete physical equivalence of a gravitational field and the corresponding acceleration of the reference frame . This assumption extends the principle of relativity to the case of uniformly accelerated motion of the reference frame.
    In other words, he postulated that no experiment can locally distinguish between a uniform gravitational field and a uniform acceleration. This principle explains the experimental observation that inertial and gravitational mass are equivalent. Moreover, the principle implies that some frames of reference must obey a non-Euclidean geometry : that spacetime is curved (by matter and energy), and gravity can be seen purely as a result of this
