This language is based on being in the now and focusing on the positive. There is no word for bad, you just say "not good". Also, all living things are "tama". There is not distinction between human and other forms of life. Also, the language doesn't focus on selfishness. These is no direct word for "have", you can only really say "there is". There is no word for "my", or "mine", or even ME/YOU. Everything is contextual. A "tama" can be a person. A "tama" can be a spirit or an animal. It depends on the context. There is no such thing as "time" in this language because time doesn't really exist. It is just Speed and Distance which makes time. In this language everything is looked at as a whole.
There is no cherry-picking with words like "this", "that", "blue", "red". There are only two main adjectives "good" and "bad". There are no shades of gray, just white and black. If you feel sad, that's "bad", if you feel sick, that's "bad", if you are happy, that's "good". God/parent/creator are all one word. live, life, soul, spirit, living thing, are all one word.
The language is contextual even with pronouns.
