[WARNING: "read more" will extend this to 871 lines] Hi everyone, I know it's a little late, but I just watched it and actually wondered if this video itself would show signs of zipf-iness. So I took the transcript and processed it a little. Some info upfront: I sliced things like "power-law" and "day-to-day basis" into completely separate words I kept the distinction between singular an plural of the same word, as well as all the conjugations I stripped words of possessive suffixes (languages' to languages; word's to word) I extended abbreviated forms of "is", "have" etc. to full length (I've to I have; can't to can not; etc.) I kept digits as digits, numbers as well, I did, however, separate "ten", "hundred", "thousand" etc. if they were terminating a number (30 thousand; 181 million) So here are the results, draw your own conclusions: Word count total : 2,885 (2,308 = 80%) Word count unique: 853 (171 = 20%) Hapax legomena: 514 First 20% of most common words are used 1998 times total which is 71% of the total word count. Words used only once make 64% of the unique word count and 18% of the total word count. ----------------------------------------------------------- the: 164 of: 103 a: 84 is: 73 and: 72 in: 53 to: 51 that: 47 it: 46 words: 31 percent: 30 are: 29 word: 27 as: 27 for: 25 used: 22 we: 21 but: 21 be: 20 Zipf: 20 about: 19 or: 19 more: 18 not: 18 one: 17 I: 17 this: 16 have: 16 will: 16 often: 16 on: 16 you: 16 most: 15 so: 14 language: 14 law: 13 just: 13 even: 12 what: 12 20: 12 get: 12 if: 12 by: 12 there: 12 all: 11 letter: 11 way: 11 up: 11 can: 10 out: 10 at: 10 when: 10 has: 10 world: 10 was: 9 0: 8 how: 8 them: 8 they: 8 80: 8 principle: 8 said: 8 many: 8 according: 8 things: 8 some: 8 does: 8 appear: 7 from: 7 number: 7 than: 7 which: 7 only: 7 point: 7 much: 7 these: 7 English: 7 like: 7 every: 6 26: 6 Pareto: 6 times: 6 corpus: 6 been: 6 few: 6 once: 6 languages: 5 here: 5 something: 5 after: 5 eighty: 5 least: 5 half: 5 frequency: 5 likely: 5 typing: 5 result: 5 randomly: 5 also: 5 spacebar: 5 (ESshow won't actually let me post the whole thing XD so here's the 100 most common words)

I'm a 3D artist and I'm confused as well, when rendering 3D objects with lightning, the way the light goes from 100% intense (the light source) and to the furthest place reflecting the light also follow Zipf's law, so we as 3D artists tend to put lightning far away from the object with high intensity so the difference isn't noticed and is almost equally distributed.

Humans interpret information logarithmic to base ten, so that's probably what causes our language to exhibit Zipf's law.
Ben Kutenets

My theory to why this exists is because of the nature of language. Certain words have more preference and play different roles in a language (words such as 'a or the' are used in pairings with other words, meaning they will occur more often then the other words themselves). That is why when a language forms, it naturally uses shorter words to allow these words to be used in higher EFFICIENCY and to allow better expression. Imagine if we replaced the/a with baculiform, ex: "baculiform cat ate baculiform red treat". In general, the goal of a language is to be an efficient and fast way to express ideas, and using short sounds to do this would make sense. Zipfs law makes a language what it is support to be.

WEIRD STUFF,,,, WOW, HERE IS MORE, the ARK of the COVENANT has been found,,, in Jeremiah's Grotto, right under where YESHUA=(real name for Jesus) was crucified. So HIS BLOOD that came out when He was stabbed by the spear could run down the crack in the bedrock, that happened when the earth quaked + landed on the correct side of the ARK, that was placed there many hundreds of years earlier. His dried BLOOD was still alive even, + tested as only having 24 CHROMOSOMES = Virgin Born + proving HIS DIVINITY.. (only had one parent= regular 46, which is 23 chromosomes each) + with only one male Y chromosome from the Father. - PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO esshow.info/watch/B8TRoQk6WUE/v-deo.html @ (41:41) = HIS Blood is STILL ALIVE + had only 24 chromosomes = 23 from his mother + only One from His Father (normal people have 46 = 23 from the mother + 23 from the father). If these videos have been taken down, then in ESshow search these words = ( ark of covenant blood Ron Wyatt ) - Sorry guys + gals, but the higher up elite of mankind has decided to believe + side with these aliens (fallen angels + Nephilim) = sons+daughters of the children of fallen angels + human females in building these particle colliders - which mess with our timelines. - Isn't it amazing what knowledge we can gain by simply adding the “il-s” of life, into this evil theory.,, EVil-sOLUTION. Evolution never happened,,, and it never had the time, so it could have happened,,,, because we have only been here on this earth for about 6000 years. Think about the odds of us on this earth that is constantly gaining mass from space dust and meteors, revolving around a sun that is always losing mass from burning fuel=mass. If mankind has evolved over billions of years, then why is there only about 6000 years worth of space dust on the moon = see the moon landings, there is only a few cms of space dust. If evolution ever happened, then it needed the moon to keep the oceans from becoming stagnant water. - WHERE ARE THE THE BILLIONS OF YEARS WORTH OF DUST DEPOSIT. Surely that would have produce meters of dust, as would not the dust have been even thicker way back then + Don't try to tell me that something or someone removed the dust every so many thousand years. - DO THE MATH FOR YOUR SELF = the amount of dust deposit is known,,, + the amount deposited per year is known too. I did the math in the early 90's, and it worked out to be about 6000 years worth of dust that is on the moon now. I don't know if they use the same figures now or not. But even so, it should be obvious that after even one billion years,,,, the dust should be many meters thick. + TRUTH about COVID-19 esshow.info/watch/H_vNWmqWmZc/v-deo.html - Perpetual Geometrical Electricity Multiplication can power all things. TESLA was right + free AC electricity multiplication is easily done using PULLEYS =(wheels). This simple technology is even, Found in the Bible @ (Ezekiel 1:16), as the inner workings of a UFO motor. "a wheel in the middle of a wheel" or, a small wheel running around the inside of a large wheel. Or a small cog in the middle of a large cog, with two medium-size cogs of the same tread in between the large outer cog and the small inner cog. Do you see why I chose to use pulleys + belt/elastic/rope/or a piece of tied rope or string, instead of cogs with both sizes of cogs + threads having to have meshed correctly? - This GEM-(free energy technology) is so simple that it should be obvious-(but it has been hidden by evil spirits). Just think of this small amount of logic,,, it only takes an input of a few sparks,(short bursts of current) to rotate a large 33 cm circumference pulley,(about 10 cm diameter) once, giving you 33 cm of moving belt. Then, if you run this length of belt past 1 to 3 mini-pulleys of 1 cm circumference, with AC or DC motors/generators attached, this would give you an output of 33 or 99 cycles of AC or DC electricity. NOW TRY + TELL ME YOU CANNOT FREELY MULTIPLY ELECTRICITY with pulleys when you can gain 99 cycles of AC or DC electricity, from a few sparks,(short bursts) of DC current, which is the amount to rotate a DC motor with a large 33 cm circumference pulley once. - + Don't you listen to these evil spirits, whispering that torque is a problem, as this is a blatant lie. This is because more torque occurs when you need to produce more power, and the only power that you need to produce is the minute amount of current that it takes to crank over your single DC motor one single time. These many rotations of these few motors or generators only need to generate a few short bursts of current, which equals practically nothing, when it comes to current. - This costs such a minimum amount of cash = 2 DC motors of the same voltage, 1 large + 1 small pulley, a belt, strap, elastic or tied piece of rope or string, possibly 4 diodes for a rough full-wave bridge rectifier, a capacitor and a few wires to connect these components together. This is so simple to assemble that we could start making a GEM=(Geometrical Electricity Multiplier) for almost every voltage that we might need or want. Please remember that a lot of these supplies might be laying around our homes, or you could easily and cheaply pick them up in a junkyard. And if you choose to use AC motors/generators, then you have to add a full-wave bridge rectifier, (4 diodes) in between your AC generator(s) and DC drive motor. - THIS GEM TECHNOLOGY IS SIMPLE LOGIC, THAT EVIL FORCES ARE HIDING. This website esshow.info/watch/NxpoiCFKmPg/v-deo.html/ is almost identical to the idea that I was shown in the early 2000's as a Vision of a 10-speed bicycle going uphill in 10th gear + then back downhill in 1st gear + I soon put this GEM free energy technology on the web @ free-energy.yolasite.com/ Free energy can be generated using pulleys, because pulleys can be used to freely multiply the # of rotations + since AC electricity is generated by rotations, then we can use pulleys to freely multiply AC electricity. - This is a diagram free-energy.yolasite.com/picture-gallery.php that looks a lot like the wiring of this former “science experiment” ESshow video if you replace the battery with a capacitor + if you only attach one side of the capacitor. I used a battery instead of a capacitor to use any extra power to charge the battery, + also added a warning of how this could be a fire hazard, because of overcharging the battery. This free-energy website of mine was started in the early 2000's, so it was around for a long while, to inspire others of this ancient Ezekiel GEM technology - PLEASE,,,,,, JUST TAKE THE FEW MINUTES + BUILD THIS SUPER SIMPLE MECHANISM FOR YOURSELF. Just go to this website. esshow.info/watch/NxpoiCFKmPg/v-deo.html/ + see how truly simple this works, and is to build. Now please, go out and build as many of these super simple, and cheap to build, GEM free energy machines as you can, of all sizes and voltages. Or even better, convince the government to start generating it for us, getting rid of the pollution that we put into the air, and the radioactive stuff completely. - Have you ever heard of the MANDELA Effect? PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT,,,, + then try telling me that there is not a POWERFUL SPIRITUAL WARFARE going on in our world. This is a must-watch video. All of time and space are changing. Things that are true have been altered + CERN is the cause for these events - Here is one of the videos trying to let this scary information out esshow.info/watch/pPrutcbaerQ/v-deo.html - + here is an explanation by the Physicists esshow.info/watch/HHKmoBeNWWQ/v-deo.html - + here is a radio speaker's view on this esshow.info/watch/1v19n5JBSDs/v-deo.html&t - CERN Is Changing Our Timelines - Proof - Mandela Effect Part 1 Our Father, Who Art in Heaven, had set up a Door = deadline for His Son to come back by/before + it has the Quantum computer doorschristmustpassthrough.yolasite.com/ but that Door has already past = JAN 14.57, 2019 = 1st DOOR + esshow.info/watch/ooZA0riSa9Y/v-deo.html tells you what is the real story. (REALITY = this is the hidden elite, in high places doing this, not your governments) - This whole world + whole universe is made of atoms, which are super small + super complex mechanisms,(which we are still learning about),,, containing massive energy =(atomic weapons) We are supposed to believe that these many trillions of trillions of massively complex mechanisms were all created in an explosion = BIG BANG. + WHEN WE STILL, WITH ALL OF OUR MASSIVE INTELLECT, HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CREATE EVEN ONE SINGLE ATOMIC STRUCTURE.

Yeah like how time feels like it's going faster as you age. 1 1/2 1/3 ... 1/27 1/32 1/40 Etc You are experiencing it by that much of a fractional amount.

Interesting stuff! Now, could you please explain how Zipf applies to things like commodities and the stock market? I mean, if it applies to all of the different things we talked about here then it has to apply to the market n stuff, right? Come to think of it, this explains why some guys have all the luck....;(

Could Zipfs Law be used to determine if the Voynich Manuscript is written in a real language by looking at the number of times the “words” that repeat appear? 🤔

I dont think the amount of letters is the reason for that. I think its the other way around. More common words are shorter, because they are used so often. This might sound some kind of strange, but think about how language might came into being. And think about what algorithm your brain might use to formulate a phrase. Its not like: "Take random letters until I get the word I need -> finish". For me it works like this: "How can I tell someone what Id like to say -> What kind of words are there -> Which word has a matching meaning -> translate them so non-german people know what you are talking about -> finish". For example: 130.000 years ago human wanted to say they are hungry. They said: "Huguh guahah guguluggugulugukuuku". But "Im hungry" was often needed, so the said "Huguh" becomes "I", "guahah" becomes "am" and "guguluggugulugukuuku" becomes hungry. Thats it (or at least: That might be it).
