I would like to pose a question to you. Why does the word “break” mean to change something from a finished product into its pieces? Is it because that’s the way that the language has evolved from previous languages? That’s what historians and linguists believe. But where did the original word come from?
Now this will take a little bit of thinking outside the box, so read carefully and don’t dismiss it until you’ve finished completely. What if the idea of a single language was actually true. What if the idea of Babel was actually based on truth? Of course every culture will inevitably create its own functional language, but what if there was a single True language? What if all of the world could speak and understand this language? I ask this because there are hints in many many cultures that certain sounds bring forth different magickal effects. Think about the runes. They are not simply geometric designs to carve on something for magickal purposes. They were a language, and a language that supposedly held a large portion of the magick of the Norse. Each rune had its own sound as well as its own associations. Combine this with the idea of Babel, and we have a very strange idea indeed. As an example, let’s look at Berkano the rune. It represents the B sound, as well as the birch tree and the female spark of life as well as being very related to all things associated with the third Sephiroth in the tree of life, Binah. Now let’s look at words that start with B: birth, birch, book, baby, break, burn, box.
All of these things are at least slightly associated with the Berkano rune. Obviously birch is. Birth and baby are as well. Burn is different but still associated because Berkano is actually a fire rune in some sense due to the fact that it is the initial fire of life. Box and break have to do with Binah’s association with form and boundaries.
Strange as it seems, Berkano is a Norse rune and the associations are based on its role in the Norse culture, and yet it still seems to hold at least some truth in today’s English language. I’m sure that there are situations where it doesn’t hold true, but then again, I never said that modern English is the ‘one true language’. I simply think that it is strange that it still holds some truth. It’s also very strange how in the word break, the b sound could represent the origins of something, much like a seed is the origin of life. The r represents the road to something. K represents the purifying torch of fire. It seems strange how even after a millennium the purifying torch takes something back down the path to its original parts.
Yes, it is absolutely true that it is a bit of a stretch, but it is also very true that it’s far too close to pass off completely. I also doubt very highly that the Norse runes are the true language. Many languages throughout the world have magickal languages, and I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if you could do something very similar with all of them. My question is, couldn’t someone take these languages and do something very similar with them all? Then, couldn’t you combine this research and start looking at how they correspond with each other. It seems like something that should have been done years ago, but I’ve never seen any kind of research even remotely similar.
