Created by Nickantony Quach, Thumoslang stands for Thumos language but it more precisely is a nomenclature. It’s both a nomenclature for social life and, as Jairson Ascencao puts it, a system for social clarity.

The thorough understanding of a particular situation in your social life is brought about only by the reasoning carried out by a solid social logic. The level of social clarity depends on the strength of social logic. What makes Thumoslang the most powerful nomenclature for social life is its architecture of social logic, which is made of strictly falsifiable but easy-to-use thumbnail definitions.

Thumoslang is the “technology” by which human relations are conducted while minimally generating unwanted drama. For the first time, humans discovered a way to have systematic control of relationships in their social life. Documented by the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration, this discovery should be no less important than the widespread control of fire. Thumoslang accomplishes its mission by thoroughly defining vague yet common concepts we often reference while speaking in social life, thus eliminating the ambiguity that may arise from them, such as;

  • What is a relation; what is a relationship; what are the differences between the two?
  • On which day does a relation begin or end; on which day does a relationship begin or end?
  • Which current relationships are meaningful to your life, and why?
  • Which relationships are missing from your life, and why?
  • How should one go about starting a new relation, relationship?
  • How could one make an existing relationship more meaningful?
  • How would one go about repairing a relationship?

Many of such relationship-anatomy questions are addressed by the above-mentioned 2017 book, sometimes referred to as the Original Thumos Book (OTB), as well as the podcast, The Last Clueless Teenager, which consists of numerous videos published by Ri4CTV  on YouTube.

All that is written in the OTB is together referred  to as the Thumos Philosophy. Its nomenclature is called Thumoslang,  which names all the concepts used in the philosophy. All concepts encountered in this program are presented using the terms as defined by the nomenclature.  Each of its concepts is specified by a thumbnail definition, which is  expressed using  a thumbnail syntax. Here is the first example of a  thumbnail definition.

  • Thumbnail; that means, brief but concise.

Here is the second example of a thumbnail.

  • Definition; that means, explanation of meaning.

Here is the third example.

  • Meaning; that means, description of importance.

Let’s put all three together. A thumbnail definition is a brief but  concise explanation of what makes a concept important. Here is a  practical thumbnail.

  • Success; that means, peer recognition.

It’s easy to miss the implication of this concept. If you want to  become successful in a specialized field, you must know who your peers are in that field. As soon as many of them officially recognize a piece  of work carried out by you, you achieve success for that piece of work.

Such precision as demonstrated above is what it takes to address all the questions related to the anatomy of relationship. Better relationships are the main reason for the existence of Thumoslang. You can ensure better relationships when communicated ideas are always understood by both people involved. A mutual agreement on how all obscure yet necessary language will be interpreted in conversation is what is needed for a relationship to be free from misunderstanding, and thus have the wants and needs of both within the relationship explicitly known and fulfilled.

Better relationships are the best way to accelerate towards your  ideals, in order to actualize your ideal self and reach what you truly  want to become. “Everything else is secondary,” said Steve Jobs. In  other words, to fully live your life according to your own desires, and  not according to those of others–including family and friends–you must  become a master of relationships, a Bruce Lee of social life. How? The  answer lies behind this page. Here is a foretaste.

If you want to become successful in any specialized field, you must  first and foremost understand how to use its nomenclature, which  determines how things are named in that field. If you want to become a  master of relationships, you must speak the nomenclature for social  life. That’s Thumoslang!

It hurts not to know how to use Thumoslang nomenclature while dealing  with others. As the architecture of social logic, it lets you analyze  in a hurry what your family and friends have to say about you, in order  to ensure that their influences are reducing–and not increasing–the  distance between you and what you truly want to become.

“I’m the first who, from high school on, grew up  with Thumoslang, which did not exist before 2017,” said Alec Mustafayev, “and I’m thus obligated to pass it on, through the telling of my story.”

You can use Thumoslang to tell your story and become one of the last  people who are clueless when it comes to social life. Alec does, too, want to use it and  become one of the last people who do not know how to accelerate towards  their ideals regardless of their circumstances, and especially when those ideals involve their own family and friends.
