In prior posts the idea that ancient art describes the events of a great comet impact and an associated crustal displacement was discussed. Support from ancient records then turned to the written word and in particular to the Hebrew alphabet as a method for reconstructing the Indo-European Language.

The Hebrew Alphabet was discussed in these posts previously under the title “A Little Mystery Hidden in the Hebrew Alphabet.”

There are two things that are distinct about the Hebrew alphabet. Five of the twenty-two letters are associated with a pair called an end-cap because they are used at the end of Hebrew words. This makes a total of twenty-seven symbols. Secondly, the alphabet is called an abjed which means it has no vowels.

Additionally, each letter is also a number. The numbers associated with them are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 , 80, 90, 100, 200, 300 and 400. Some numbering schemes assign the higher numbers 500 etc. to the end cap letters.

The letters will be replaced by the Latin letters shown in the image for font convenience sake:

Key to the Hebrew Letters and the Latin Letter that will serve to substitute for it in this study due to font issues.

Imagine that all texts were originally written on clay tablets (or worse yet carved in stone) and someone had to collect the clay, make the tablets, write the tablets, bake the tablets and pity the poor soul who had to haul them from place to place. It is easy to conclude lengthy documents required great economy of lettering to facilitate this process and minimize the massive bulk.

With this in mind, in this reconstruction of the Indo-European language, each letter becomes an entire word or more precisely an idea. In contrast to tradition the ‘ea’, the first letter, will be taken to be a short ‘a’ or short ‘e.’ The letter Ayin, marked ‘A’, will be the long ‘a’ of English. The ‘I’ will be  a long ‘I’ or ‘Y’ and the ‘wf’ will be the four Latin letters: O, U, F and W. The multi-purpose ‘wf’ was either used to confuse the novice or was originally some word/sound forgotten with time but probably along the line of wouf or fouw. It is often associated with the sound ‘v’ as well which provides 5 sounds for the 6th letter and recreates the 5-6 noted in prior posts as being important. However, this study shows that over time the B took on the role for the ‘V’ sound of ‘wf’.

Also, contrary to custom each letter typically considered a consonant will automatically be assumed to be followed by a short ‘a’ or ‘e’ so that ‘b’ becomes ‘ba’ or ‘be,’ and ‘d’ becomes ‘da’ or ‘de’, etc.,  The difference between short ‘a’ and ‘e’ is of little importance since their actual pronunciation varies greatly with locality and time. In total contrast to the idea that this alphabet is vowel-less note this means there are certainly four ‘vowels’ depicted by symbols and one assumed to be present if one of the other four is not used.

These assumptions convert the Hebrew abjed alphabet to one with consonants and vowels much more like the modern Latin alphabet. The beauty of this is it removes the necessity of writing every ‘e’ which is still the most common letter used today and thereby substantially reduces the weight of each document written in clay. This is a worthy goal for book maker and reader alike.

Very soon we begin slowly defining the words associated with the individual letters to arrive at the twenty-two basic words/concepts of the Indo-European Language. After that many two and three letter words will be explored which will notably expand the vocabulary before some interesting ancient words are examined.

A Faithful Record of the Indo-European Language

In prior posts the idea that ancient art describes the events of a great comet impact and an associated crustal displacement was discussed. Support from ancient records then turned to the possibility of a pervasive religion that spread ideas and thereby its language. It was suggested this religion was ‘Baalism’ and so the Indo-European Language must be the words used to convey its core ideas… as yet… not identified.

So begins a new search for the actual language, if it still exists. This new search will be divorced from previous well established notions of the Indo-European. In the end, at the very least, a very faithful record of the original Indo-European Language will, hopefully, be revealed.

One must remember that only preserved and translated languages are part of the Indo-European reconstruction developed by academics. Knowledge of languages never written and/or only written on perishable surfaces such as paper seldom survived to be included. Etruscan’s words still linger in limbo. Other languages may have errors in translation. One must assume large pieces of the trail are likely to be missing.

Where to begin?

Let’s start at the opposite end. Instead of at its beginning let’s look at where the language trail ends today. What part of it still strongly exists not diminished much at all by time?

Recall how one first learns to read.

Was step one the A of the alphabet? And then B? The alphabet is very durable. Indeed, we know alphabets tend to be derived from others. The Latin and Hebrew alphabets list letters in a serial order with many letters in the same order. Each letter of Hebrew is also associated with a number. This contributed to a sustained letter order. Today’s Hebrew script and Latin alphabet (used here) developed in a parallel manner from the same source known today as Paleo-Hebrew and Phoenician and in turn they were derived from Proto-Canaanite. (See chart below.)

There are a good many other alphabets all the way back to Luwian (4200 BC) and Sumerian (3500 BC) which have a grid style in common. These alphabets typically are laid out in a table with consonants vs. vowels such as: ca, ci, cu, ce. The Cree and Cherokee Alphabets fall into this style. Interestingly, the Faliscan alphabet (a serial style) from Roman era Italy has two forms of symbol R. One form represents A, a vowel, and another form R, a consonant. The Cherokee (a table style) has two R’s also. One represents E, a vowel, and the other Sv, a consonant. The odds against this must be rather high. Faliscan is derived from Etruscan. The origin of the Cherokee script is documented in Joseph B. Mahan’s “The Secret: America in World History before Columbus.” It is a much more realistic story then the one being passed around the internet. Mahan obtained his information directly from a Shawnee Chief. It confirms that the Cherokee script also has its origins in antiquity.

Although pre-dated by the Egyptian scripts, the Proto-Canaanite Alphabet is one of the oldest known. It dates back almost 3500 years. It evolved into Phoenician and eventually into today’s Hebrew. The Hebrew alphabet will serve as the base from which the Indo-European Language will be reconstructed. Another added advantage is the Torah, the original untranslated version of the first five books of the Old Testament, has been meticulously maintained for thousands of years so there is further reason to have confidence in its order and numerical values.

This alphabet will be the starting point for a faithful reproduction of the Indo-European language.

But what can a,b,g,d….. really tell us?

The Mighty Religion of….? Baal?

In prior posts the idea that ancient art describes the events of a great comet impact and an associated crustal displacement was discussed. The search for further support from ancient records then turned to language and in particular to one possible and pervasive religion that spread ideas and thereby its language.

This religion has to have existed over a broad span of time and a vast distance encompassing many peoples and environments. There is no reason to expect that the name of this religion was one and the same for all places in all times, just as Christianity presents under such vastly different names as Catholic, Anglican, Protestant, Baptist, Episcopal, Methodist, Church of Christ, etc. One might expect that this religion will also appear under different names.

Baal, a Statute from Ugarit.14th to 12th BC. Louvre, Wikipedia,

It is proposed here that the religion was that of Baal. Baalism has been touched upon many times in prior posts. It is very poorly understood today, if at all, and often attributed to only a small geographical region in the vicinity of Canaanite, particularly Ugarit.

However, place names suggest otherwise. Baalbek; Baltic Sea; Temple of Bel in Syria; Belluton, England; the Baltic States and region; Bel (Celtic god); Bel (Babylonian god); Bel, Iran; Bel, Romania; Baal described in the Old Testament; Baal, Netherlands; Baal, Belgium; Babylon of old, ……etc.

There are religious references such as Beltane in the British Isles, The Tower of Babel, and the Bible (when pronounced bi-baal). So, there is ample evidence that, whoever or whatever Baal was, belief in it was widely dispersed across time and place which makes it an ideal candidate.

Previous to Christianity there was Judaism. The Old Testament, which is a Judaic document, describes in I Kings 18 the killing of 450 priests of Baal, so Judaism did not develop in a vacuum. Baalism was evidently pervasive there and in other places. The art that has been reviewed throughout these posts was from a variety of cultures so it is impossible to affix one name to the religion. The religion shall be defined here as ‘Baalism’ simply because Baal seems to be a prevalent word.

Logically, the next goal will be a study of the Indo-European Language to see what can be learned. However! People have been doing that for 400 years. So, the path taken here will be an entirely different approach than has ever been tried before.

The next post ………….. will jump knee-deep into the unknown we know so very well!

The One and Only Language of the Ancients

In the last post the idea that ancient art describes the events of a great comet impact and an associated crustal displacement was discussed. It was also suggested that perhaps there is another way to retrieve any existing ancient records of such an event. This leads to a necessary assumption.

Assuming knowledge of the pole’s movement was known by key individuals, and if they adamantly believed this knowledge must be passed down through an infinite number of generations, then it should be found in the records of numerous cultures. The depiction of key elements in the art of vastly distant cultures, in both time and place, suggests this is true.

The Bible relates that originally one language existed. This has no doubt spurred on the countless researchers over the last 400+ years, since the existence of a base language was first suggested. The Indo-European Language (also known as indogermanisch) is the proposed base language from which a multitude of others evolved. Countless man hours of research has resulted in the mapping out of language development throughout Europe and western Asia. The oldest known is from 4200 BC in the Anatolian region. This is the same area from which Luwian Hieroglyphs originated that have often been referred to in these posts.

This four century study has also resulted in the mapping of religious areas and trade routes. If one works backwards from this idea, then it is possible to conjecture that the base language was part and parcel to religion, since trade can be done without verbal communication. Which begs the question: what ancient religion was involved?

A good candidate is…………….? Next post

Did the Crust of the Planet Turn?

Is it possible the Earth’s crust can move as Charles Hapgood described in his 1970 book “The Path of the Pole?

If it had happened, wouldn’t we have ancient records? And if it had happened, wouldn’t our scientists have already proven that it can!

We must remember that as recently as the 1960’s we were building space rockets to the Moon before we knew whether it’s craters were dried lake beds, the result of volcanic eruptions, ice, or meteor impact sites.

What if … ancient records exist but we just can’t read them?

What if… the truth behind the great legends is simply that all life on Earth hung in the balance in very recent human history? Did these memories foster the myths of the gods?

A lot of time has been spent deciphering old art in previous posts. The point was to demonstrate that there still exists a great historical record of the events associated with a great comet impact and a crustal displacement as described in  “A Planet Most Miraculous: The Mechanics of Earth’s Rotating Crust.”

The Greek god Hermes represents swiftness and today this ancient symbol (shown above) represents medicine. But what did it originally mean? Look at it closely. Exactly what does it depict?

Prior posts have shown there are key elements in ancient art which demonstrates there was a continuous desire to perpetuate a core set of ideas. Today these ideas are identified as religions composed of myths. We seldom, if ever, attribute the purpose of religion to… the preservation of Earth’s history and its measurements. If religion’s original true nature was basic Earth science, then ignorance, both then and now, has fostered the myths of gods.

Does the symbol of Hermes above tell us a double comet impacted Earth at the former pole?

Does the Venus of Schelklingen tell us a double comet decapitated mother Earth?

If only they had spelled it out clearly!!! Or did they?…….

The Next Most Stable Configuration

© 2018 B. L. Freeborn

In the last section the rotation of Earth’s outer crust was discussed and that what we experience as the North and/or South magnetic pole is located in this massive bulk comprising 45% of the Earth. It was suggested that in a large comet impact the outer crust will rotate on the inner core but will move only so far before it ‘locks’ into another stable magnetic position.

In the first image the round magnet sits at the edge of a flat magnet. Notice the tilted angle. The attraction here is so strong that it can pull the large flat magnet. When it is set at the center or pole of the flat magnet, it sits parallel to it as one expects. There it slides easily over its surface until it grabs at the edge as shown. This is its ‘next most stable position’ and definitely where the convergent and divergent magnetism forms the strongest bond.

A round magnet sits at an angle on the edge of a flat magnet.

In the next image of Earth notice that between the outer crust and outer semi-solid core there exists a layer that is considered to be highly viscous. It is proposed that this layer is the interface where the slippage of the outer crust occurs. Notice that it is directly below North 56.5 degrees of latitude. The Earth’s North-South line was severed in the impact as the outer core rotated. The opposite pole developed against the slip layer and it then ‘locked’ with the divergent magnetism of the inner core at North 56.5 degrees. It turned 33.5 degrees. The line of movement was along longitude West 79.2 degrees. The magnetic locking of the outer crust stopped it from rotating further and fortuitously allowed life to continue on Earth by assuring shifts in climatic zones overlapped to some extent.

The Earth’s magnetic poles shift with the outer crust and are realigned overtime by the Earth’s stable inner iron core.

The Magnetic North has moved significantly over the last few decades. It is now very nearly aligned with True North. The Magnetic South Pole is moving as well but at a slower pace.

The Earth is a magnificent structure that is able to absorb an impact from a large comet and minimize the damage. Its outer layers are able to rotate as if on a free axle which absorbs the energy of the impact. It then stops the rotation of its layers as they lock again magnetically.
