ABOUT THIS: Thumoslang101, the video series, introduces Thumoslang, the nomenclature for relationships, to all around the world. If you want to become an expert in a particular field, you must first learn of its nomenclature. As the first formal nomenclature for social life, Thumoslang is set to bring humanity to Level 2.0. For a demonstration of its power, watch Season 1 of the YouTube series Thumoslang101 on Ri4CTV.

00:00:05,540 --> 00:00:08,180
First of all, I just want to say, thank you so much...

3
00:00:08,180 --> 00:00:11,720
for everything you did for me the last time.

4
00:00:11,740 --> 00:00:13,300
I remember seeing you...

5
00:00:13,300 --> 00:00:14,913
running into me at the park.

6
00:00:14,920 --> 00:00:16,660
While I was shadow-boxing,

7
00:00:16,660 --> 00:00:17,840
you came up to me and asked me,

8
00:00:17,840 --> 00:00:19,940
"Do you mind letting me film you?"

9
00:00:20,400 --> 00:00:23,510
From there, we had a deep conversation...

10
00:00:23,510 --> 00:00:26,740
...spanning over several hours.

11
00:00:27,600 --> 00:00:30,160
One thing you told me that really stuck with me.

12
00:00:30,300 --> 00:00:32,000
I still practice it today.

13
00:00:32,060 --> 00:00:33,360
I'm very grateful for that.

14
00:00:33,400 --> 00:00:35,760
You taught me the word, "respect",

15
00:00:35,760 --> 00:00:37,420
and what it truly means.

16
00:00:37,960 --> 00:00:40,640
You told me, respect means no interfering.

17
00:00:40,700 --> 00:00:45,120
I knew what they taught us, what respect means,

18
00:00:45,140 --> 00:00:48,240
but I did not really know the true meaning of what respect is.

19
00:00:48,860 --> 00:00:51,320
And I remember, after you told me all that,

20
00:00:51,540 --> 00:00:55,540
I went back home and pondered everything we spoke about.

21
00:00:55,540 --> 00:00:57,040
And I was like,

22
00:00:57,440 --> 00:01:01,640
...man, without interfering is truly respect.

23
00:01:01,740 --> 00:01:04,400
I then started applying that to all my life.

24
00:01:05,100 --> 00:01:07,600
I started applying that to my day-to-day activities.

25
00:01:07,600 --> 00:01:09,380
I started applying that at work.

26
00:01:09,640 --> 00:01:10,980
I started applying that to my son.

27
00:01:11,160 --> 00:01:13,900
He is two years old his name is Jeremy.

28
00:01:14,420 --> 00:01:17,560
I explained to my son what respect is.

29
00:01:17,560 --> 00:01:19,049
I try not to interfere with things in my life...

30
00:01:19,049 --> 00:01:21,680
...and it has actually helped me a lot.

31
00:01:21,680 --> 00:01:25,900
Adding that philosophy into my memory bank helped me a lot...

32
00:01:25,900 --> 00:01:28,740
...with navigating through problems in life.

33
00:01:28,740 --> 00:01:30,800
Sometimes things happen.

34
00:01:30,960 --> 00:01:32,300
Just don't interfere with it.

35
00:01:32,460 --> 00:01:35,600
It has, too, helped me with decision making.

36
00:01:35,780 --> 00:01:38,140
I'm just grateful for that.

37
00:01:38,440 --> 00:01:42,840
I told myself I want to come back for more knowledge.

38
00:01:43,320 --> 00:01:45,140
That's why I'm here today.

39
00:01:48,320 --> 00:01:51,640
Nick: "Why is that not enough?"

40
00:01:53,140 --> 00:01:53,740
Ulm..

41
00:01:55,720 --> 00:01:56,600
You know...

42
00:01:56,800 --> 00:02:00,140
I think, that is, knowledge is...

43
00:02:00,260 --> 00:02:08,700
I believe that different philosophies
apply to certain things.

44
00:02:09,040 --> 00:02:13,560
Without interfering, to me, is like an
overall type of stuff.

45
00:02:13,560 --> 00:02:16,380
Just like, when you try to build a house.

46
00:02:16,380 --> 00:02:18,540
You can be the architect but...

47
00:02:18,540 --> 00:02:22,050
...you still need electricians somewhere
to build it.

48
00:02:22,050 --> 00:02:24,750
However, you can't have the electrician until you start building the house.

49
00:02:24,750 --> 00:02:31,900
I'm in that place in my life where I need help with certain things.

50
00:02:31,900 --> 00:02:34,680
Certain things are coming up in my life right now.

51
00:02:34,680 --> 00:02:37,180
I just need help set the direction.

52
00:02:37,200 --> 00:02:43,180
I just need somebody help me redirect my mind.

53
00:02:43,380 --> 00:02:47,460
How can I become this person I'm trying to become.

54
00:02:47,540 --> 00:02:50,160
How can I create this person I'm trying to create?

55
00:02:50,160 --> 00:02:51,100
How am I...

56
00:02:51,500 --> 00:02:52,340
Ulm...

57
00:02:53,520 --> 00:02:54,200
Yeah...

58
00:03:01,520 --> 00:03:04,360
Nick: "I feel lost many sentences ago."

59
00:03:06,140 --> 00:03:14,560
Nick: Because I don't want to interfere with your disclosure,

60
00:03:14,560 --> 00:03:17,920
...I refrained myself.

61
00:03:17,920 --> 00:03:21,800
Nick: I fought hard from interrupting what you were trying to say

62
00:03:22,020 --> 00:03:24,040
Nick: That's how I display respect.

63
00:03:25,380 --> 00:03:30,320
Nick: However, you got me lost in the first few sentences...

64
00:03:30,320 --> 00:03:37,960
...because you used generic terms.

65
00:03:37,960 --> 00:03:46,350
Nick: I think that it's easier for me if you can bring me closer...

66
00:03:46,350 --> 00:03:54,260
...to a specific problem, a specific
event that made you want to come back here again.

67
00:03:55,000 --> 00:04:00,980
Nick: Make me understanding a specific problem first,

68
00:04:01,140 --> 00:04:06,820
...before you take me to the general
statements you made earlier.

69
00:04:06,820 --> 00:04:09,800
Nick: Then it's easier for me to grasp what you have to say.

70
00:04:09,800 --> 00:04:15,760
Nick: But you started with the big picture and I felt lost.

71
00:04:16,000 --> 00:04:19,220
Nick: Don't show me the galaxy on the first frame.

72
00:04:19,220 --> 00:04:23,480
Nick: Show me the Earth first, and then zoom out.

73
00:04:24,560 --> 00:04:26,840
Nick: So, what brought you here?

74
00:04:29,140 --> 00:04:29,880
Ulm...

75
00:04:31,660 --> 00:04:38,240
Nick: Which event, which problem brought you here?

76
00:04:39,000 --> 00:04:43,820
Nick: Why could you not solve it under your own power?

77
00:04:50,700 --> 00:04:51,300
Ulm...

78
00:04:55,480 --> 00:05:01,860
As you ask me that question, I just
have to think about how to word myself.

79
00:05:02,940 --> 00:05:03,620
Ulm...

80
00:05:07,440 --> 00:05:09,320
Nick: "Time out!"

81
00:05:09,320 --> 00:05:17,160
I want to explain what has just transpired in the last few seconds.

82
00:05:25,620 --> 00:05:41,160
In the last minute, I practiced the knowledge that is called reciprocation.

83
00:05:41,160 --> 00:05:45,480
It is the basic cycle of communication.

84
00:05:46,240 --> 00:06:01,500
That was invented by my co-writer Mark Canny in the writing project we started in 2015.

85
00:06:03,620 --> 00:06:08,640
Halfway through the project, in 2016, he came up with reciprocation...

86
00:06:08,640 --> 00:06:13,940
...as a basic cycle of communication.

87
00:06:24,120 --> 00:06:31,940
Before I remind you of the four elements of reciprocation,

88
00:06:31,940 --> 00:06:36,760
...do you remember me telling you about that or not?

89
00:06:36,760 --> 00:06:37,760
[Ifeanyi shakes his head.]

90
00:06:37,760 --> 00:06:41,760
Okay, then let me ask you this first.

91
00:06:43,640 --> 00:06:50,260
Do you know the difference between reciprocity and reciprocation?

92
00:06:54,300 --> 00:07:00,380
Reciprocity is an eye for an eye.

93
00:07:02,640 --> 00:07:05,956
You scratch my back, I scratch yours.

94
00:07:05,960 --> 00:07:10,060
Another name for that is the Golden Rule.

95
00:07:12,040 --> 00:07:17,940
That is about mutual benefit but not about communication.

96
00:07:19,160 --> 00:07:34,580
Reciprocation is the label Mark Canny used to tag what he invented in our writing project.

97
00:07:36,740 --> 00:07:41,060
It's the most basic cycle of communication.

98
00:07:41,280 --> 00:07:48,400
If you don't understand or remember this, you would have a hard time knowing...

99
00:07:48,400 --> 00:07:52,300
...how to exercise respect every minute of your life.

100
00:07:56,680 --> 00:08:01,940
So, reciprocation has four steps.

101
00:08:02,800 --> 00:08:11,680
The first step is carried out by the speaker: disclosure.

102
00:08:12,860 --> 00:08:16,420
When you speak you are disclosing some information.

103
00:08:19,120 --> 00:08:29,960
If I interrupt your speech and ask questions about your delivered paragraph,

104
00:08:29,960 --> 00:08:38,320
...I'm not interfering because that's part of the first step, which is carried out by the speaker.

105
00:08:41,360 --> 00:08:47,760
Your disclosure is not successful if I'm not able to understand any of your delivered paragraphs.

106
00:08:49,300 --> 00:08:53,260
In that case, interruption is not interfering.

107
00:08:58,480 --> 00:09:12,460
If you are disclosing the information but, right after the first two sentences, I jump in and say I don't understand.

108
00:09:13,320 --> 00:09:18,880
Could you explain the first two sentences before you continue?

109
00:09:20,060 --> 00:09:25,860
That question is also an interruption but it is considered as interfering...

110
00:09:26,340 --> 00:09:29,680
...because I did not wait until you finish your paragraph...

111
00:09:30,960 --> 00:09:34,960
...before I do the second step, which is comprehension.

112
00:09:37,240 --> 00:09:45,420
I should never start my second step, as a
listener, before you finish your disclosure.

113
00:09:45,420 --> 00:09:48,960
If you did not finish disclosing the whole paragraph,

114
00:09:48,960 --> 00:09:55,200
...I should not even try to understand the idea that you're disclosing.

115
00:09:55,200 --> 00:10:01,300
An interruption may or may not be interfering.

116
00:10:06,080 --> 00:10:06,700
Hm...

117
00:10:06,760 --> 00:10:12,760
You don't know that if you don't understand the four elements of reciprocation.

118
00:10:13,420 --> 00:10:20,520
Most of us did not know of such things.

119
00:10:20,760 --> 00:10:34,540
Mark Canny did not analyze the reality of human interaction and label its parts until 2016.

120
00:10:37,960 --> 00:10:46,880
Once you finish disclosing your whole paragraph, then, like I demonstrated back there,

121
00:10:46,880 --> 00:10:52,140
....I said, you showed me the galaxy and I got lost right away.

122
00:10:52,140 --> 00:10:55,440
Start with the Earth first.

123
00:11:00,520 --> 00:11:05,800
That's an example of how I show respect to the speaker.

124
00:11:06,620 --> 00:11:11,220
Nick: "Sometimes, when I interrupt, I'm not disrespectful."

125
00:11:11,220 --> 00:11:15,259
Nick: "Sometimes, when I interrupt, I'm very disrespectful."

126
00:11:15,260 --> 00:11:21,880
Nick: "It depends on how much that interruption is involved with the disclosure step."

127
00:11:22,740 --> 00:11:25,780
So, help me out.

128
00:11:25,780 --> 00:11:32,700
When you said I gave you the galaxy versus the Earth I understood what you said.

129
00:11:32,700 --> 00:11:36,140
I understand it but can you help me with...

130
00:11:36,420 --> 00:11:40,040
...how to correct that formulation of sentence.

131
00:11:40,920 --> 00:11:42,140
Nick: "Say that again, please."

132
00:11:42,320 --> 00:11:44,420
How can I change my approach?

133
00:11:44,420 --> 00:11:47,940
How can I change the way I speak?

134
00:11:48,120 --> 00:11:50,840
When I was explaining myself,

135
00:11:51,020 --> 00:11:53,720
you felt like I went straight to the galaxy.

136
00:11:53,820 --> 00:11:55,380
How can I change that?

137
00:11:55,720 --> 00:11:59,400
Nick: "Always begin with the time and the place."

138
00:11:59,400 --> 00:12:00,960
Say that one more time.

139
00:12:00,960 --> 00:12:02,960
Nick: "Always begin with...

140
00:12:03,760 --> 00:12:11,360
...a specific point in time when, and a particular place where, the event took place...

141
00:12:11,560 --> 00:12:15,960
...that brought us together for this conversation."

142
00:12:15,960 --> 00:12:18,260
So, always begin with time...

143
00:12:18,260 --> 00:12:19,300
Nick: "Time and place..."

144
00:12:19,660 --> 00:12:30,360
Nick: "...so that people begin with the Earth first, before you bring them to another galaxy."

145
00:12:31,000 --> 00:12:31,560
[Laughters]

146
00:12:32,800 --> 00:12:36,300
So, okay. So, I should say like, so, time, like...

147
00:12:36,520 --> 00:12:39,980
Nick: "For example,

148
00:12:40,180 --> 00:12:44,260
...my wife and I are having a big argument...

149
00:12:44,260 --> 00:12:47,300
...but this is different from the past.

150
00:12:47,800 --> 00:12:54,060
A week ago, she started this and I reacted in that way.

151
00:12:54,920 --> 00:13:01,000
Suddenly, you have a hook to heighten my interest.

152
00:13:01,000 --> 00:13:08,440
In that way, I first focus on the Earth before you zoom out and say,

153
00:13:08,440 --> 00:13:15,160
"You see, this is related to another event, in another galaxy, long ago."

154
00:13:16,920 --> 00:13:21,900
Nick: And then I can start to see the whole galaxy without feeling lost.

155
00:13:23,300 --> 00:13:24,020
Yeah...

156
00:13:24,260 --> 00:13:27,100
Nick: Always begin with time and place.

157
00:13:27,100 --> 00:13:29,260
Yeah, I've always known that too.

158
00:13:29,260 --> 00:13:32,600
My communication is often scattered.

159
00:13:32,600 --> 00:13:34,680
I jump everywhere.

160
00:13:34,680 --> 00:13:35,860
I noticed that.

161
00:13:35,900 --> 00:13:42,620
Nick: When people are polite, and most people are polite,

162
00:13:42,620 --> 00:13:47,520
...they will not raise their hand and say that they are lost.

163
00:13:47,520 --> 00:13:53,840
Nick: Instead, they continue sitting pretty and pretending like they're listening.

164
00:13:53,840 --> 00:13:56,760
Nick: However, as you're talking and while they're feeling lost,

165
00:13:56,760 --> 00:13:59,840
Nick: ...they think about other problems in their life.

166
00:13:59,840 --> 00:14:05,040
Nick: Because they couldn't follow you
and yet they don't want to interrupt.

167
00:14:06,120 --> 00:14:14,840
Nick: If they did that, they interfere, disrespect the conversation.

168
00:14:15,560 --> 00:14:17,700
Nick: They disrespect their time.

169
00:14:17,700 --> 00:14:20,883
Nick: They disrespect your time,

170
00:14:20,883 --> 00:14:24,420
...as the communication cycle fails.

171
00:14:26,980 --> 00:14:33,680
Nick: As a listener, you have to interrupt when the communication cycle fails.

172
00:14:35,360 --> 00:14:41,850
Nick: Otherwise, without your interruption, the speaker goes on and on,

173
00:14:41,850 --> 00:14:45,860
... and waste everyone's time.

174
00:14:48,840 --> 00:14:49,500
Well...

175
00:14:49,640 --> 00:14:53,860
Nick: Knowing when to interrupt, and when not interrupt,

176
00:14:53,860 --> 00:14:59,960
...could not be nailed down as a science until 2016,

177
00:14:59,980 --> 00:15:05,880
...when that knowledge was spelled out mathematically.

178
00:15:06,860 --> 00:15:08,560
I like that.

179
00:15:09,340 --> 00:15:12,300
I'm very... That's why I was coming back.

180
00:15:12,300 --> 00:15:15,320
I come back for more knowledge.

181
00:15:15,500 --> 00:15:22,100
This is the only place that I know for sure you can dissect me and break me down,

182
00:15:22,100 --> 00:15:26,980
...and really show me what I need to do and how I need to grow as a person.

183
00:15:27,260 --> 00:15:29,680
I'm a very good student.

184
00:15:29,800 --> 00:15:31,280
I want to learn.

185
00:15:31,280 --> 00:15:34,740
I want to be a great male one day.

186
00:15:34,740 --> 00:15:36,840
I want to be a leader.

187
00:15:37,000 --> 00:15:38,220
I want to lead my people.

188
00:15:38,360 --> 00:15:39,740
I want to lead people.

189
00:15:39,740 --> 00:15:40,940
I want to...

190
00:15:40,940 --> 00:15:42,260
Nick: "There you go again."

191
00:15:44,320 --> 00:15:48,920
Nick: "You are taking me away from the Earth, before you show me the Earth."

192
00:15:49,060 --> 00:15:50,400
So, you bring that up...

193
00:15:50,400 --> 00:15:53,100
Nick: "You are wasting your time and my time again."

194
00:15:53,100 --> 00:15:55,040
Really, break it down for me.

195
00:15:55,040 --> 00:15:58,420
Nick: "Start with the time and place of your problem."

196
00:15:58,420 --> 00:16:01,780
Nick: "What's the specific problem that brought you here?"

197
00:16:03,720 --> 00:16:05,810
Oh no, but I wasn't talking about a problem.

198
00:16:05,810 --> 00:16:07,140
I was just thanking you.

199
00:16:07,140 --> 00:16:08,260
I'm thanking you.

200
00:16:08,260 --> 00:16:10,840
Nick: "You are not telling me anything that I didn't know."

201
00:16:11,080 --> 00:16:11,760
[Laughing]

202
00:16:11,940 --> 00:16:13,400
Nick: "You want to learn."

203
00:16:13,400 --> 00:16:14,620
Yeah

204
00:16:14,620 --> 00:16:15,600
Nick: "That's why you're here."

205
00:16:15,600 --> 00:16:23,340
Nick: "If you tell me that once, not bad; twice, not way too bad."

206
00:16:23,840 --> 00:16:27,620
Nick: "But I hear that several times today already."

207
00:16:27,620 --> 00:16:29,180
Nick: And I thus say, wait a minute,

208
00:16:29,200 --> 00:16:32,020
Nick: ...why did he keep telling me all of that again and again?

209
00:16:32,020 --> 00:16:33,240
Ah...

210
00:16:33,400 --> 00:16:34,520
Nick: In there, out here

211
00:16:34,520 --> 00:16:35,920
Ah...

212
00:16:35,920 --> 00:16:37,640
So, I said that numerous times.

213
00:16:38,000 --> 00:16:39,080
So, what does that do?

214
00:16:39,080 --> 00:16:39,580
What does that...

215
00:16:39,580 --> 00:16:41,800
Nick: "You're just wasting your time and mine...

216
00:16:41,800 --> 00:16:44,820
Nick: ...because you keep disclosing the same, old information...

217
00:16:44,820 --> 00:16:46,100
Nick: ...that I knew already..."

218
00:16:46,260 --> 00:16:46,760
Wow

219
00:16:48,580 --> 00:16:49,080
Wow

220
00:16:49,360 --> 00:16:50,980
Okay, I, look, well...

221
00:16:51,020 --> 00:16:55,940
Nick: "...on the one hand. On the other hand, my focus right now is the Earth."

222
00:16:55,940 --> 00:16:59,380
Nick: "You're not taking me there as quickly as possible..."

223
00:16:59,620 --> 00:17:02,760
Nick: "...and so I'm not able to hear anything else you say."

224
00:17:05,720 --> 00:17:06,600
Alright

225
00:17:08,040 --> 00:17:09,400
Let me think of...

226
00:17:09,400 --> 00:17:12,273
...where I want to start from.

227
00:17:12,273 --> 00:17:20,339
Nick: "The time and place of the event that made you feel like you did not have enough knowledge."

228
00:17:22,040 --> 00:17:27,200
Alright, well, I've very interesting story.

229
00:17:27,440 --> 00:17:29,940
I'd say, right now, I'd say...

230
00:17:30,040 --> 00:17:31,440
Two weeks ago...

231
00:17:31,980 --> 00:17:32,900
Nick: "Thank you."

232
00:17:32,900 --> 00:17:34,900
[Nick claps his hands.]

233
00:17:35,100 --> 00:17:36,980
Two weeks ago...

234
00:17:37,520 --> 00:17:43,820
Two weeks ago, I lost my job. I lost my summer job.

235
00:17:43,820 --> 00:17:52,900
Nick: "Time out, to explain to viewers, you got me hooked."

236
00:17:54,420 --> 00:17:56,300
Nick: "I have goosebumps..."

237
00:17:58,680 --> 00:18:03,600
Nick: "...with four words: I lost my job."

238
00:18:03,600 --> 00:18:09,500
Nick: "When you say, two weeks ago, I'm
interested."

239
00:18:09,500 --> 00:18:16,060
Nick: "And then you say, I lost my job, I got goosebumps."

240
00:18:16,060 --> 00:18:30,340
Nick: "So, within few words, within half a sentence, you connected with the audience emotionally."

241
00:18:30,340 --> 00:18:35,660
Nick: "Compare that with your five minutes of disclosure..."

242
00:18:35,660 --> 00:18:42,540
Nick: "...about life, the universe and everything, back 10 minutes ago."

243
00:18:42,820 --> 00:18:43,920
Nick: "Do you see the big difference?"

244
00:18:44,060 --> 00:18:44,560
Yeah

245
00:18:45,420 --> 00:18:46,260
yeah

246
00:18:47,040 --> 00:18:49,280
Nick: "Now, let's go back to that."

247
00:18:49,280 --> 00:18:52,320
Nick: "Sorry to interrupt but I need to explain to you about..."

248
00:18:52,320 --> 00:18:56,120
Nick: "...the power of the Earth versus the galaxy."

249
00:18:56,120 --> 00:18:59,620
[Laughters]

250
00:18:59,760 --> 00:19:01,600
Nick: "Now, my interest is heightened."

251
00:19:01,600 --> 00:19:03,340
Now, yeah

252
00:19:03,360 --> 00:19:09,640
Nick: "I'm ready for what's next in your story of, two weeks ago, I lost my job."

253
00:19:09,820 --> 00:19:12,360
Two weeks ago, I lost my job.

254
00:19:12,560 --> 00:19:21,720
[*** To be continued by Episode 2 in Season 1 of Thumoslang101 ***]
 
The story about how I lost my job is very, very interesting.
