Charlie Chaplin: A Pioneer of Body Language Skills

Loratis welcome you for the year 2012!We hope this year gives you a good career growth and keeps you in pink health.

We bring you series on ‘Communication Skills and Body Language’ for Jan 2012. Here I present the first article on this topic. I am continued to ask, ‘How do I improve Spoken Communication Skills?’ I have taught many people, if you feel your strength cannot be spoken, then work on your body language skills. I say this, because everyone cannot learn languages at the same pace, doesn’t rule out the option of know the minimum required spoken communication skills. I feel the perception carried by people ‘Communication means English’ is perhaps not the right way. To validate some of the points as said above, ’Speech was probably first developed between 2 million and 500, 000 years ago, before then the body language and sounds made in the throat were the main forms of conveying emotions and feelings and perhaps its true to date. The people before the spoken language was developed, had high ability to read person’s attitude and their thoughts was perhaps the original communication system used.

Early 1890 till 1930 film industry had silent films, one of the most well-known and pioneer was Sir Charles Spencer (popularly known as Charlie Chaplin) was a great English comic actor, film director and composer. He was one of the best pioneer in using body language skills during silent film era. Each character (actor’s) skill was classed as good and bad by the extent use of body gestures and signals to communicate the audience. Charles Darwin in 1872 wrote most influential work ‘The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animal’, on body language. Similarly Albert M 1950′s findings are worth to mention, his findings were – only 7 percent of verbal communication was used against the 55 percent through body language. Another pioneer, Anthropologist Ray Birdwhistell estimated that an average a person actually speaks for ten to eleven minutes a day and the average sentence takes only about 2.5 seconds. He estimated that a person can make and recognize 2, 500 facial expressions. Many researchers are of an opinion that, body language is used as a substitute for verbal messages and negotiating interpersonal attitudes. This all means, words are used for conveying information. The most fascinating thing about us (human beings) is that our posture, movements and gestures tells one thing and our voice tells another thing.

Pretty much, a species of birds evolved to their surroundings.. longer beaks to reach further in the tree holes to get food...
Darwin's finches (also known as the Galápagos finches or as Geospizinae) are a group of about 15 species of passerine birds.[1] It is still not clear which bird family they belong to, but they are not related to the true finches. They were first collected by Charles Darwin on the Galápagos Islands during the second voyage of the Beagle. All are found only on the Galápagos Islands, except the Cocos Island Finch from Cocos Island.
The term Darwin's Finches was first applied by Percy Lowe in 1936, and popularised in 1947 by David Lack in his book Darwin's Finches

What are the fundamental laws of social morality?

Here's what I think:

First Law. Don't initiate force or fraud. This is absolutely true because people will not voluntarily associate with anyone who coerces or defrauds them. If a group of people don't obey this law, then they aren't voluntarily associated, therefore they are not a society, therefore social morality does not apply to them, anymore than it applies to rocks and trees.

Second Law. There are no other laws, because any other law would violate the first law.

Note: I am distinguishing between social morality, which people…

I don't think there are really any laws of social morality it is just social order.

Few scientists and religious scholars have seriously pondered how science and religion can be reconciled. But times are changing. Not long ago I attended two meetings that brought together scientists, theologians, and religious scholars to discuss just that issue. The first gathering was part of the Science and the Spiritual Quest II program ( sponsored by the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences in Berkeley, California. The other was organized by the American Association for the…
