Noam Chomsky’s ‘stimulus-free language’: A pedestal of mantric poetry

Noam Chomsky’s vision of ‘stimulus-free language’ is an evolutionary ascent of language. It is for the reason that it reveals the existence of stimulus free mind which is an evolved state of mind, the state which emerges as a result of undertaking the yoga of, what Sri Aurobindo terms, ‘psychicisation’. Chomsky’s vision of stimulus free language as an instrument of thought reveals the...

Evaluation of the impact of the efflux pump modulation process on the anti-adhesion and antibiofilm activities of analogues of natural marine compounds in a marine bacterium

One strategy for enhancing the effect of natural marine antifouling compounds has been to combine them with coumarin-type molecules (VL2, VL17 and VL19). These molecules are known to have an inhibitory effect on the efflux pumps (EP) of a large number of Gram-negative bacteria. To this end, they have been used as adjuvants to natural marine compounds (OB1, AS194 and AS162) to enhance their antibiofilm activity. On the...
