The Easiest Common Language in the Cosmos and a Manifesto of the Human Common Language

Article excerpt


The author of this essay has first probed into the human beings' necessity for the common language, and has expounded on the easiest common language existing everywhere in the cosmos and running through all "dead" & living things, and then has listed its very-widely-used and never-exhausted applications. Based on his many years' researches and experiments, the author has pointed out that the universal language exists in the human brain and the human languages, expecting to solve the long-suspending and unsettled technical problems in the language researching and teaching. The essay has sketched a prospect of the human common language, and one practical and scientific route - adopting the universal language and the human brains' laws and the excellences of the-most-widely-used language can bring about the formation of the human common language, and finally called on every nation and every earthman to do a bit for the formation.

Key words: Cosmic common language; Brain and sound language; Laws; Human common language


We human beings are very great and also very small and lowly. We have discovered more and more stars, traveling in the vast universe, and have reached the other stars. We have made vehicles, trains, airplanes, atomic bombs, H-bombs, N-bombs, computers, robots, clone persons, and have changed the varieties of the life forms. In the microworld, we have discovered particles such as molecules, atoms, neutrons, protons, gluons, leptons, hadrons, and even made use of the Large Hadron Collider to find out the mystery of the origin of the universe. We have benefited more and more from exploiting more and more the ocean. We have gone 10 kilometers down the ocean to find valuable deposits. William Shakespeare (1966) sang a song for the human beings in Hamlet:

"What a piece of work is man!

how noble in reason!

how infinite in faculty!

in form and moving how express and admirable!

in action how like an angel!

in apprehension how like a god!

the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals!"

Meanwhile we human beings are insignificantly small in the limitless vast universe. So far we have not known what world we have come from and what place we are eventually going to. Many human beings on the earth are still suffering from hunger, disease and misery brought about by chaos and wars. On many occasions we are powerless when natural disasters come. A tsunami may swallow thousands upon thousands of people suddenly in a few minutes, just as many ants are drowned when a tub of water was poured accidentally into their den. We are even often worried about becoming extinct suddenly from this earth as the dinosaurs disappeared 0.2 billion years ago. We human beings have not had our own common language yet. Many earthmen could not understand other earthmen's languages as soon as they leave their own households and reach other lands.

Human beings are born with such characteristic: full of curiosity, fond of challenging, never giving in, and never stopping striving. As we have made more and more achievements in exploring the universe, we are also expecting to meet with extraterrestrials. Though there is no definite conclusion about whether or not there exist extraterrestrials, no one can stop us human beings from fancy meeting with them with curiosity. The higher civilization we reach, with stronger curiosity we fancy meeting with them. Suppose we human beings meet with the extraterrestrials one day, what easiest language can we use to get in touch with them?

The following is one encounter of Mr. Tom and Mrs. Tom with one extraterrestrial.

That day a streak of lightning cleftthrough the window with a loud sound. Soon, Mr. and Mrs. Tom opened the door in response to a knock, and saw a middle-sized strange-looking figure in the courtyard. Mr. Tom went to him, followed by his wife. …
