Don’t let the strange nature of the language scare you. It’s no different than speaking Mandarin, or Dothraki. Many people don’t know that ancient Mandarin Chinese was an invented language, as well, to unify the warring tribes of China.
Remember, it’s not the language; it’s what’s being said in the language. The values are meant to be religion-neutral.
- Lohmki — Relinquish all intrinsic entitlement. You’re not entitled to anything in life, and no other culture owes you anything.
- Ȑiemki — Learn from the past, but forgive it.
- Söhnki — Love all of yourself. Honor all of your ancestors on logic not based on arithmetical percentages, but on propositional calculus, consequentialism, the Chaos theory.
- Bȑohnki — Love your tribe. Condemn any glorification of crimes committed against one’s own people.
- Faltȑaki — Never fall to nihilism. If you cannot find purpose, create it; if you cannot create purpose, find it.
- Toȑuhnki — Embrace objectivity. Base logic on facts before feelings.
- Mahȑuhnki — Think on your own. Question everything, especially what sounds sweetest to one’s own ears.
- Söhntoȑuhnki — Know yourself. Embrace your own darkness, individuate your own shadow, so that it may not rule you.
- Söhnðȑætki — Embrace your own shame, so as to be able to share experiences that make the shoulder for others to stand upon, thus improving society.
- Bufahtȑeki — Choose a side, never choose neutrality or apathy in matters that concern oneself.
- Toȑbȑohæki — Truth before tribe. To follow truth before a tribe is to create a tribe that follows truth.
- Öhmsaki — Push forward, never being content with stagnation. If something’s broken, fix it; if it’s not broken, improve it; if it cannot be fixed or improved, invent something better. Always seek the next adventure; always see the potential next version of something outside of oneself.
- Gökuȑinki — Constantly strive for continual self-improvement and self-innovation through determination, and the humility needed to accept constructive criticism in one’s own individualistic path of attaining self-actualization. This is the life path of the Vannoken: Always seek the next goal; always see the potential next version of oneself, never being quite the same today as you were yesterday.
- Ȑekoȑinki — The way of personal responsibility. In any conceivable conundrum, a Vannoken should always ask what they did wrong first, before blaming anyone or anything for any reason in any given scenario.
- Temunðȑætki — A Vannoken should have the rectitude to not cower before his or her end.
