modern alphabets are products of ancient alphabets
that themselves are derived
from even more ancient

Sumer, Egypt, Persia (Elam), Anatolia, Crete, and Cyprus.

|The World is a Wheel within a Wheel - Giordano
|What is the
theory of the universe derives from the observation that every human
being is a PART of the universe. We are neither "outside" looking "in"
nor "inside" looking "out". We are inside looking inside. Our
structure - whatever it is - must be the same as the rest of the
universe...by definition. For those more "physically" and technically
inclined, see my blog at Einstein's
Voice, which has some thoughts on various theories of Physics.
my estimation, what we call "thought" is the universal principle of the
universe in action. Just think - what is thought? what is thinking?
Thought by its nature is combinatorial... as if it would not tolerate a
single, static world. Is this also the mechanism of the universe? Is
this the WHY of the universe? Is the creative eternal force of the
universe simply the impossibility of a single dimension? Is it an
endless "wheel within a wheel" as so described by Giordano Bruno?
None of us can imagine a world perfectly full OR perfectly empty,
without a spatial container for absolute mass, or without any limits
for an absolute void. One dimension is an impossible thought.
Two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds are equally unthinkable.
If there is only an A and B, there must be space between them, C. But
the system A B and C must change over time, D, for us to have knowledge
of that system, else it would be static and unmoving. D is time. Hence,
the "moving world" has four dimensions. Even if there were two or
three-dimensional worlds, we could never know them.
human being is genetically unique, but if, as current science presumes,
there was once a "Big Bang" - then ALL of us trace our humble genetic
origins back to a single fiery event in which the atomic material for
our genes was created. We were in some way born as stars out of the
But such big bangs must by definition be
infinite in number and occurrence over the spectrum of time. The
universe could not just suddenly have "started up" out of nothing. The
universal principle must be everlasting.
The process of continuous expansion and collapse between "near absolute
mass" and "near absolute void" must be endless, for all else is
ephemeral. All things are born but also pass away.
Since the universe has infinite time, all possible combinations of
particles (and the principles behind them) can and must by definition
recur infinitely, so that any given combination eternally repeats
itself - except for unconscious periods of "nonexistence" of any given
combination. Time has no meaning in infinity.
We are therefore constantly resurrected over immense periods of time,
as most of the world´s religions allege, but, of course, without
recollection of the "past". The universe is thus probably even
miraculous than imaginable. We are and we are not.

Many of the humanities, unlike the physical sciences - do not have to
prove that their theoretical "motors" actually run (this is also a
problem with legal theories - e.g. current drug abuse laws). It is
often sufficient if enough prominent names claim that the theories run.
The ill-fated doctrines of Marx and Engels were one example of
theoretical blindness to the evidence. Another example is the 40-year
mainstream resistance to the decipherment of the Maya hieroglyphs by
Knorosow. Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn treat false paradigms at length.
Much of mainstream
human history is based on myth, unfounded opinion and just plain
hearsay. When we look at the testimony
of man's history through the piercing eyes of a cross-examining lawyer,
much accepted dogma needs revision. We are still chained by the
superstitions and taboos of the witchdoctors of yesteryear.
of the great enemies of modern science is its smug and deluded view
that mankind has come such a long way since the allegedly ignorant
stone age forefathers lived on this planet. As
the great German thinker Goethe wrote in his famous Faust (my
translation of Wagner talking to Faust):
Forgive me! this
most consummate delight
To seek the soul of times gone by, in flight,
To look at things as wise men did before,
And how far we have come since days of yore.
Ah yes! Clear to
the very distant stars!
Faust - the critical and skeptical genius answering to Wagner - who
personifies the modern smug and deluded man convinced of his modern
superiority to ancient man - is of course scoffing at Wagner, his
"educated" naiveness and his "unlearned ignorance".
of Cusa wrote that it is the doubt of knowledge which makes
knowledge. The "unlearned ignorance" of modern scholars is no more
greatly apparent than in the study of the megaliths, showing that
civilized educated man (archaeologist, astronomer, historian, linguist,
tourist) is often blind to what he does not wish to see or is not
expected to see.
de St. Exupery wrote that it is only with the heart that one can see
truly, and the megaliths show that the heart of modern man needs to be
consulted more often. Stone age man, if he lived today, would laugh at
our "unlearned ignorance".
