? Spock asked you to go

It sounds crazy, but as one with an artistic soul, I believe you!

I read and can not help wondering if your Alias, got to read part of the saga. Or was a partner in these thoughts.

Author's Response:

Never far, I think and feel. Thank you.

I love how you provide references - do you also write academically or professionally? Because it reminds me of that.

Hmm, "s/he" and "hir" - are these a new grammar convention? It seems amusing to me that pronouncing them would lean over into the feminine side... I tend to use the plural "they", when it's about an undefined-gender person.

This is a rather heavy piece overall, but I couldn't agree more - about what a soulmate helps a person do... see past one's prejudices... past monument-spawning systems; losing that person is a B***H... but the bond never really breaks ("Love - never do us part").   



Author's Response:

Actually yes, I do write academically and the endnotes (originally, footnotes) are mostly me pulling my own leg.

I recently happened on s/he and hir as a suggestion for the evolution of the English language, and I rather like the idea; I also feel that Spock might like it, it's so logical and imo quite neat. The balance seems right to me with regard to the order and mix of letters and signs, but it may indeed feel overbalanced toward the feminine from the pov of all those languages (including mine) which tend to use the masculine when both genders are meant. "They" can sometimes perhaps be confusing, esp. when one is referring to personal, individual matters.

Heavy this piece is indeed, as it should well be, I believe...

Thank you for your insightful, very interesting discussion.
