Yes, this is General Semantics of Alfred Korzybski. Something I discovered like 20 years ago when I read Null-A of Alfred vanVogt. It's all about the definitions that we put on things, that tend to make things appear to us as if they are static things but science has proven to us that nothing is static, everything is always changing, even ourselves. What you said about not using the verb "to be" is part of the E-prime language.
You can read this topic in which I talk a little bit more about definitions and what they do to us www.abovetopsecret.com...
And that list goes on and on. But take another look... None of that is true. None of that. Those are just labels you've been given and or you've adopted and believe in your mind are true. But realistically, they're not true. You're none of these things. What you are infact is just a human living on planet earth.
The honest truth is you are just a human on the earth. Everything else about you is just labels given to you by yourself, others, and tptb that mean to enslave you.
