Sustainable Materials, Earth Coupled Mechanical System...
See, I have this theory that without language, thought is not possible. And when we garbage-up the language, we garbage-up our thought processes. That is what destroyed our legal system and our education system. Looks to me that architecture is at risk.

It is dead! The architecture crits are great abuses of the Eenglish language and thought.

I have a complimentary theory: Without a chicken there wouldn't be an egg and without an egg there wouldn't be a chicken. See how much progress we have made? Now to your theory: Words are symbols for thought. With no thought, no words. However, I think that the existence of Helen Keller and others with similar problems, easily proves that thought exists without words. I advise you to go back to the drawing board.
Sure we are at risk when the leftists compose the language of conquest. That is why we must stay engaged with the terms. Earth Coupled and Ground Source are certainly good engineering terms, Sustainable Architecture, beyond Sustainable Resources is a buzz word and I pick out "materials" because that is what we are talking about.
