[raevenclaw] A New Way of Thought {Neologism}

Postby raevenclaw » Fri Mar 08, 2019 3:01 am

I have lihaed many times in my life. I have also occasionally halied. What do 'to liha' and 'to hali' mean?

figured i'd start off with a neologism while i continue work on my latventure!

Would it be fair to describe lihaing as an action? Haliing?
Are the two words opposites? Is the difference between the two based on what you do? What the result of your doing them is?

Lies relevant? Is being on the giving vs. receiving end of something relevant?

Would it be fair to describe lihaing as an action? Haliing? I would call both an action, but not a physical one.
Are the two words opposites? Yes Is the difference between the two based on what you do? I'd say this. What the result of your doing them is?

Lies relevant? Is being on the giving vs. receiving end of something relevant? Both are irrel.

Is lihaing a solo action? Can it be done with another person? Must it?
Does lihaing involve thinking? Speaking?

Same questions for haliing?

Are they mental actions? Dreaming?

Are liha and hali anagrams of the same root phrase, etymologically speaking?

Is lihaing a solo action? Can it be done with another person? Must it? Strictly speaking, lihaing is almost always a solo action, though I suppose in rare circumstances you could liha with someone else.
Does lihaing involve thinking? Yes. Speaking? You don't have to speak to liha, but I have on occasion spoken while lihaing. Furthermore, if you are lihaing with someone else, it would definitely involve speaking

Same questions for haliing? Mainly the same answers, though it's slightly more likely that you would hali with someone else, and a fair bit more likely you would speak while haliing.


Are they mental actions? Yes... Dreaming? ...but they don't involve this

Are liha and hali anagrams of the same root phrase, etymologically speaking? I came up with 'hali' by swapping the syllables of 'liha', so yes.

Same q's for both: Ideas relevant? Creativity? Problem solving? Introvertion? Friendship? Love? Struggles?

So the difference between the two opposites lies in what you do mentally? If so, are they opposite modes of problem solving? inductive vs. deductive logic?

Lateral puzzles relevant? Math problems? Making decisions with a coin toss or other random outcome generator? No to all of these

So the difference between the two opposites lies in what you do mentally? Actually, no. If so, are they opposite modes of problem solving? inductive vs. deductive logic? So no to these as well

Also, a bit of a BLOOPER: I said one is more likely to speak if haliing than lihaing, which isn't the case. What is more likely is speaking if lihaing or haliing when doing so with or around someone else.

Do you liha/hali at work? At home? In transit? At another place? Is either action confined to a particular place in your life? Are they related to solving the same problem each time? Related problems? Unrelated problems?

You can liha or hali anywhere Are they related to solving the same problem each time? Related problems? Unrelated problems? Sort of related to solving the same problem, in that you cannot both liha and hali on the same problem at the same time

Is the problem akin to an obstacle one would encounter with anger/annoyance? Is it the sort of problem one willfully tests oneself with, such as a sodoku or crossword?
