    A Norma is a body of individual enterprises (or organizations) that comply with the application of the Ka Tota Philosophy. They operate from a purified capitalist system. A Cottage Norma means a Norma that serves a smaller community in the nation it is established in. A Project Norma means that Norma established to serve a larger area than that of the cottage Norma in the same nation as its cottage Norma. A Resident Norma means a Norma established to serve nationwide or statewide (as it may apply in the USA) in the same nation as its cottage Norma and project Norma. A Central Norma means a Norma established to serve the entire world through Resident Normas, Project Normas and Cottage Normas. A Nucleus Norma means that Norma established to serve Central Normas. Since one central Norma is a world, a Nucleus creates many worlds along the lines of the United Nations International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activity. Many central Normas served by the same nucleus Norma constitute a universe.

Examples of Norma in a Sentence

  1. W. H. Auden:

    If music in general is an imitation of history, opera in particular is an imitation of human willfulness; it is rooted in the fact that we not only have feelings but insist upon having them at whatever cost to ourselves. The quality common to all the great operatic roles, e.g., Don Giovanni, Norma, Lucia, Tristan, Isolde, Br?nnhilde, is that each of them is a passionate and willful state of being. In real life they would all be bores, even Don Giovanni.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Líderes efectivos transforman debilidades de sus seguidores en fortalezas, lo que permite a los seguidores para ver e identificar oportunidades en cada amenaza. Los líderes eficaces son no hablar dulce, y que no se conviertan a la organización en un club de campo; pero sin duda elevan la organización por encima del status quo, y esto es importante, ampliar la capacidad de sus seguidores más allá de la norma.

  3. Sister Norma Pimentel:

    It is a humanitarian issue and we must not forget that... We must treat them with dignity and respect, to uphold them as human beings. We must find solutions that are respectful to life and to people, i think Democratic Congressional helps to see them, to see the faces, see the children. They've been through so much, but when they walk through here, they see the volunteers. The compassion, the care, it transforms them. Sister Norma Pimentel see the change. Even though they've been through so much, the children laugh and play.

  4. Elton John:

    It's the first time I had a teleprompter, a teleprompter down on my left hand side, because I thought if I sing' Goodbye Norma Jean' I'm gon na get hung, drawn and quartered, so just for precaution, I had the teleprompter there.

  5. Andrea Dworkin:

    En esta sociedad, la norma de la masculinidad es la agresión fálica. la sexualidad masculina es, por definición, intensamente y rígidamente fálica. la identidad de un hombre se encuentra en su concepción de sí mismo como el poseedor de un falo; valor de un hombre se encuentra en su orgullo por la identidad fálica. la principal característica de la identidad fálica es que vale la pena es totalmente supeditado a la posesión de un falo. ya que los hombres no tienen otros criterios para la pena, hay otra noción de identidad, los que no tienen falos no se reconocen como plenamente humana.
