Study and Communication

Well, what is ‘Study’? It is factually a specialized application of the Communication Formula. Let us examine then, ‘Communication’.

Definition: Communication is the exchange of ideas or information or objects between two people. Communication takes place when a person sends a message over a distance to another person, who receives the message and indicates it has arrived. Even when a lecturer speaks to a group, they are in fact creating a direct line of communication between themselves and each listener. When the President speaks on TV to millions of citizens, she or he appeals to each one personally, asking for individual support. They will fail miserably if they view their audience as nothing but ‘the masses’.

Communication, abbreviated ‘Comm’, operates according to the ‘Communication Formula’, which consists of the following elements:

Cause, Distance, Effect, A Relayed Particle, Intention, Attention and Duplication.

Cause is the person initiating the communication, the point of origin. Cause initiates a communication because they have an Idea that they wish to share with another, the recipient of this idea. Cause translates the idea originating in their mind into a physical object, a particle, which they can pass on or transmit to the other person. Beyond a certain Distance from Cause, there is a receipt point, Effect, where the Relayed Particle is received. Between Cause and Effect there must be Distance, since in this universe two people or objects cannot occupy the same space. The actual Communication is a physical Particle such as sound waves, noise, a note, a smartphone message, an email, or sometimes an object, like flowers, which we send to the other person.

Cause has the Intention to relay the communication, and they must give their Attention to the person receiving it, the Effect. Effect has the Intention to receive the comm and pays Attention to Cause. Effect then creates a Duplication of that which emanated from Cause and thus ends the comm successfully.

You have surely met people who, while speaking with you, touch your shoulder or grab your arm. They want to ensure that they still have your attention. Obviously, when Maggie whistles to her dog, she is Cause and the dog is Effect. When the dog barks back, it is now Cause and Maggie the Effect. The dog can express its joy as it wags its tail, this action is also Communication.

Communication results in Duplication. Duplication means that an exact copy of what emanated from Cause is created at Effect. Duplication precedes understanding: if Cause whispers and you cannot duplicate them, how will you understand? If the person chatters in Chinese and you only know Hebrew, there will be no Duplication, evidently no understanding, possibly just a big upset. A person’s opinion on what has been said to them is not Duplication. Receiving the words exactly as spoken, or receiving a printed letter and reading the words precisely as written, without changing anything, that is Duplication.

Once the Effect, who has received the comm, duplicates it, they can now proceed to understand that communication or, if necessary, clarify it. Example: Dorothy asks Frankie, “Where is it?” Frankie duplicates the question but has no idea what Dorothy is talking about. He needs to clarify her comm, so asks her, “Where is what, honey?” To which, she says, “My keys, darling, I can’t find my car keys.” Now the comm is duplicated and understood.

After Effect receives a comm from Cause and understands it, they become the new Cause when giving an answer. The person who was Cause is now Effect when receiving the reply. When we converse with another person, the Communication Formula repeats itself over and over. Two people in conversation practice this Communication Formula as they constantly alternate the Cause and Effect roles.

Now, finally, back to our earlier question: What is ‘Study’?

Noah Webster, in his dictionary of 1828, defined ‘Study’ as: “to apply the mind to; to read and examine for the purpose of learning and understanding.”

The modern Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the noun ‘Study’ as: “Application of the mental faculties to the acquisition of knowledge.”

The verb ‘Study’ means: “To read, memorize facts, attend school, etc., in order to learn about a subject.” “To read in detail especially with the intention of learning.”

‘Learning’ is: “To gain knowledge or skill by studying, practicing, being taught, or experiencing something.”

The definition of to ‘Teach’ is: “To cause another to know; to accustom another to some action or attitude; to impart to another person the knowledge of a subject.”

A ‘Pupil’ is: “A young person in school or in the charge of a tutor or instructor.” “One who has been taught or influenced by a famous or distinguished person.”

And a ‘Student’ is: “One who attends a school.” Or, “An attentive and systematic observer.”

‘Knowledge’ means: “Information, understanding or skill that you gain from experience or education.” “The state of being aware of something.” Also, “The sum of what is known. The body of truth, information and principles acquired by humankind.”
