It was suggested previously that the alphabet as preserved in the Hebrew Script represents the original Indo-European Language and that each letter represents a sound, number and idea.
In the last post ea, b, g were studied. In this post d, h, and wf are examined.
They represent numbers 4, 5 and 6 respectively. The Hebrew Letters are as seen in the image below.
Notice how the ‘d’ in Hebrew looks like a right angle. As number four it is the first number with a whole number even square root (2 x 2 = 4). Four is the number of sides of a square. It requires an abrupt change in direction to make a square, a 90 degree angle. A polygon is a closed figure. The letter’s forerunner in the Phoenician language was a triangle. The first possible polygon.
Consider that it suggests the idea: a complete division, a final state.
The next letter ‘h’ has value 5. Numerically it can be associated with the golden ratio or phi in this way: (√5 + 1) / 2. The golden ratio is related to growth and life.
Consider it suggests the idea: high, the heights.
It is suggested the sixth letter provides the sounds f, o, u and w. This was perhaps a single sound at one time such as foe. It has value 6. It is the first number whose inverse is infinite and presents an infinite series of 6.
1 / 6 = .1666666….
Consider that it suggests the idea: variation, a state of ongoing change or continuation, infinite.
From Anglo-Saxon note these examples using these letters:
daeg = day, die = die, dead = dead;
hea = heah = high;
wea = woe, misfortune, fa = foe, hostile,
of = of, off, from, away.
Note the meaning of the words as they are found in the series as provided by the alphabet’s order. We continue where we left off:
g-d or gad (wandering in lack)
d-h or dah = division, partial
h-wf or hu = how, hwy = why
Before we had these significant ideas: ‘a’ source, ‘b’ to be bisected, ‘g’ action, rotation. Each is represented by a short sound.
Now we have these ideas: ‘d’ a division or state, ‘h’ on high, and ‘wf’ ongoing.
