    What's in a word?

    The words we read, only help to produce sound. These words also hold a definition trapped in the subconsciousness.

    PRAY PREY

    It's the same sound. But different words and meanings. So is praying also preying? No. All words, are names.

    P RA Y
    P RE Y

    In the word "Pray" we have the powerful sound of RA. In the word Prey we have the sound RE, RA in reverse.

    We can learn the true meaning of words by just -reading them for what they are, and listening to their sounds meanwhile comparing the shortest words and sounds to one another. By following simply mathematical logic.

    So what do Marcus Garvey.
    Macolm X and
    Martin Luther King Jr. have in common?

    MA.

    Is this a coincidence?

    The collective unconscious plays out not only in dreams, but in language and human interaction. The English language is a library of popular sounds, redefine in most cases to confuse people of different languages. People will spend years of energy debating over what different words means by using the principles laid out by Webster's dictionary.

    But everything in the Universe is mathematical. The brain is mathematical. So if you can't figure something out, based on the simple logic of mathematics, then unfortunately something is wrong with the brain. Numbers don't lie. Putting "two and two" together is not rocket science.

    So Why is the "MA" sound so powerful in the hallways of the collective Human unconscious? MA as in MAAT. MATH. MATA. MAMA. MAMI.

    MA is also the sound of a kiss.
    MA is the first pronounced word of a baby.

    The MA sound is also hidden. Listen to words carefully.
    MIND. Which is also: MINE.

    What makes names and words powerful in essence, is what type of sounds are associated with what type of symbols, and what these symbols means and carry in the realm of the unconscious or super conscious mind.

    So regardless if you speak the sound: MIND or MINE, you are still manifesting the same energy in the Universe. You are attracting the same energy.

    MA, is the powerful sound of AUM in reverse. AUM is also known as OM, the universal OM sound of peace used in meditation to over a billion people on the planet. The AUM sound is the vibration of the planet itself, which is a B flat.

    Chanting AUM, aligns the mind, bio current and vibrations with the planet. Which is why it leads to a feeling of peace, calm and higher spiritual experience.

    The reference of AUM, which is MA- is the manifestation of that energy. MA is the earth, Mother Earth or the Spirit of the Earth in flesh, or experiencing form. MA is love in the form of balance, as in MAAT.

    The name Michael is also powerful in this regard. If anyone named Michael is fed the right vibrations, groomed by the right energy- they usually grow up to influence the world in some way.

    MAEYEKAL: Has 3 power sounds. MA. EYE (i). and KA.

    There was a time in history when those with the knowledge fashioned names using some of these same principles, numerology, astrology and Ancestry also played a key role in how names were fashioned by African people.

    It's also very African that we usually change words over to how they really sound. Europeans are popular in this regard. Using language to deceive the mind. Personally I think all words should sound the way they are read.

    AHFREEKAH

    Within the word is the sound: FREE.
    This sound breaks down to be: FA-RE. I.E: Fare. Fair. Same energy. Different words.

    Fire. Fare. Fair. Free.

    If you didn't know what these words meant at all, all we'd have to do is compare them. They are all telling the same story.

    The vibration of sound, resonates the frequency of mind. This is why it is possible for people to speak to one another using only tone. You can tell by a person's "tone" what they are really saying. In fact, tone can change the meaning or intent of a word entirely.

    That's one of the main problems with communicating on the internet. You can't hear a person's tone unless you can hear their voice. While some things can be said with wit, it can come off as an insult if read incorrectly.

    Perhaps even some things in the Bible are intentional jokes too, whereas without knowing the "tone" it can come off as gospel.

    But these are problems our Ancestors did not have, as well as other natural communities. People interacted with one another. The written word, while useful for study and education was still reviewed in a collective environment so that any misunderstandings could be ironed out.

    Hi - High

    The same word. Different meaning. Hi- is a greeting. High- is a level.
    But the greeting "Hi" is still speaking about a level. As in "Top of the morning."
    Hi- is speaking about the Sun's position in the sky.

    It's interesting that the word "High" has a "gh" glued to the back of it, and somehow we are programmed to think these words are being pronounced in some way. The "gh" is basically getting a free ride here. But why?

    Remember words are also symbols for something.

    As in music, there aren't any new sounds, no new notes. Sounds can only be rearranged. All languages use the same sounds, and all those sounds hold a frequency that resonates with the symbols of the collective unconscious.

    Cut away all the fat, and get right down to the bone- we all still live off the Ancient Ancestral super conscious. An Ancient world where pitch black night was filled with creatures of power and magic. Your survival would depend on your mind, and how your mind chooses to use the elements of water, earth, wind and fire.

    So what's in a name or a word? Symbols for mind, spirit, fire, water, earth, and air. How these elements are mixed together, plays a key role in how the personality of the person with the name affects reality.

    It's obvious that the "Ah" sound is air. The "Ah" sound also symbolizes something being pointed out. All sounds have an association with a human behavior, or even a part of the body. In a sense, all language is mental sign language. Another reason why creating language is not difficult at all for African people is because we are visual.

    So even if you didn't know my language, and I yelled out "AH-HA!"
    You'd know I just discovered something right?

    Is "AH-HA" English? No. It's universal. You can go to any country in the world and scream that out and people will know you found something. Why is that? Why is it that we all laugh in the same tone, in the same manner? Because we all pull from the same collective unconscious, and the server for that network is no doubt - African.

    If you listen to language, even the Korean language- pretend for a moment that those Koreans are African. What's the difference? Not much. The Korean language like most languages on the planet sound just like the beating of drums.

    Fire. Fare. Fair. Free.

    Fire burns, Fare is a price for travel, Fair is light, good enough, Free is a departure from slavery.

    RE is a transformer. Anything with RE in it, is being transformed into something else. RA is a life or light giver, the Sun- also known as a transformer. RA means that something is creating energy.

    Pay close attention to the F sound. What happens when we makes the F sound? We produce Wind or air.

    So without having to pull out a dictionary, FIRE, FARE, FAIR, FREE- begins with the power of air.....as with all F words.

    Now look at the word FARE- it's already telling us what it means. F- AIR.
    AH-I-R.

    So what are these words saying about Air? Air can't be trapped.
    The sound 'EYE" or I, means single object in sight, the self, etc. Ironically the mouth draws the symbol when you speak it. It's the same symbol as One.

    F-I-RE = object of air transforming. Meaning that fire can turn things into ash, etc. Sometimes the glyphs or letter tells the story as well.

    Fire. Fare. Fair. Free= tells a story about the price of survival.
    When trapped by a stronger force, use fire. When trapped by an authoritative force, pay the fare. When trapped by your own force, be fair. When trapped by no force, be free.

    When trapped by a stronger force?

    Obviously there is much more to words and even our names that we should all take the time to discover. It's all matter or listening to how words sound, and comparing those sounds to other words and asking ourselves what we we feel when we hear it.

    I've always loved the beauty of females with names that begin with KA or KE.
    All names usually divide into 2-4 parts- as in syllables the building blocks of words. These 2-4 parts help to define the body, mind and soul of the person.

    Take a name like: KADISHA. also: Khadija

    KA- DEE-SHA

    Ka is the body. Dee- is the mind. Sha- is the soul.

    The KA sound, is like smoke rising out from fire, and naturally it becomes the visual for the soul or spirit.

    DEE- or DEY means light, as in day.

    SHA or JAH - is movement of spirit or soul.


    I've heard Bill Cosby and others poke fun at how Black Mothers give their babies these crazy "Black" names in the past. Well, most Black Women are very intuitive, and this is why we find so many names with the same sound on the end. Like Keisha. Tasha. Natasha. That KA and SHA sound is very important to African people, at the front of the name, or at the back. Because we are dealing with the body and soul here. These sounds speak about our spirituality as a people.

    But I wouldn't expect anyone named "Bill" to understand that one. Black folks hardly like bills at it is. However- When trapped by an authoritative force, pay the fare.

    Brother MetaSaience ... thanks for this thread.

    When i first saw the title, i immediately thought of all the weird, and sometimes disrespectful names folk choose to register here, many that don't get past the front door. From the title, i thought i'd be able to speak to that, within context, but you are on a much higher level here. You're way beyond my understanding, though i'm intrigued by all that you've shared. So i won't speak to this particular thought of mine any further (right now), but i do invite you to speak to it, if you're so inclined.

    What i do want to ask though, that seems more in line with this thread, than my initial thought ... is what does the word ... hello ... represent?

    I remember some time ago, a Member challenged the use of that word, and it's never really left me. They implied that using the word hello, suggests "hell" and why would we greet someone (we loved or cared about) in this manner.

    Would you mind sharing your thoughts on this word ... hello.

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Greetings Mother Destee,

    as always with threads like this one- we have to follow the direction of interest.
    I was interested in that as well, I'm glad you bought it up as far as our internet names, or screen names.

    I've seen the names you talk about. I think by now we've all seen then, especially on sites like Black Planet. I often wondered why did Black Planet have so many names that give sexual visuals. Then a friend of mine reminded me that BlackPlanet is controlled by Asian investors, and this is how they think of us.

    When I first started decoding names ironically I started online and I'd give people the spiritual or metaphysical meaning for their screen names. Then as I studied further I learned that anyone can do it, by simple comparing like words and sounds.

    HELLO- could be a word opposite to Hi, The Sun is Hi, but Hell- is low. The "HE" sound happens when we are breathing through the mouth when it is very hot. It almost speaks about a bearable suffering due heat from the sun. Its interesting that Males can be referred to as HE, and the female SHE. The Male is also called Sun/Son. SHE-The S in front indicates a change in the condition.
    The S is literally a serpent symbol. Even the sound of it is. The serpent symbol is the signature of wisdom and magic in the ancient world.

    A Sistah once told me that every Woman waiting around for a Man to save her, or do something for her she is in hell and doesn't even know it. I asked her did she mean she was in suffering. She said yes, and that Hell, is also He will. He'll.

    As in- He'll call. He'll love me. He'll give me money. He'll be with me forever.

    Words are something else.

    Its funny that we know exactly what sounds mean, but not always words.
    Like I said spoken words are a form of mental sign language. Which is why Black people say: "I see what you are saying." Our minds are beautiful that way. So if I said HELL- LO, we can see what that means too. We see fire in the ground. Your mind and mental awareness is tilted down, instead of up.

    Words direct the mind and the mind can also direct words.

    If I say PINK.
    You can see the color in your mind.

    If I say ORANGE.
    You can see the color as well as the fruit.

    But happens if I say:
    REDBLUE.

    What do you see? Is your mind trying to mix these colors together?
    Well those who use language to confuse the mind already know this. What does REDBLUE look like?

    If your mind produced Purple or Violet, then like myself you are amazed at the power of our minds.

    Brother MetaSaience ... thanks for the above. So it seems the Brother who challenged the use of hello as a greeting, was right. It seemed a bit extreme to me initially, but my mind never let it go. I actually began to cringe a little, every time i use the term, after he shared that. Hmmmm ... but i don't know what else to say oftentimes, what would replace hello, without throwing folk off and stuff? I mean something that is universally accepted.

    After i posted above, i got to thinking about ... HAIL ... which is used in an honorable way ... like ... Hail to the King ... it reminds me of your example above ... pray and prey ... hail and hell ... ?? ... hmmmm ... interesting.

    It seems that i've missed the prerequisite for this course though, as i'm not quite connecting. It's as though you've started this discussion at a level that you think we all might be at, but we (me) aren't. Like trying to do subtraction, when i've not learned addition. Not a big gap, but a gap nonetheless. Is there a step that you've skipped here, because you know it so well, and kinda thinking most already know the basics? I don't wanna get lost.

    For example, my daughter's name ends in the SHA sound but i never had a clue regarding any real meaning surrounding it. Actually, she simply has my middle name, as her first name. So i can't claim any conscious awareness made in that choice, but i do see the manifestation you spoke of, regarding the names given our babies across the landscape, and it too is deep. Could many of us be connecting, unaware?!! Oh my goodness. And if we were able to become aware, of what we're already manifesting anyway ... whew! Too deep!

    Oh My Goodness ... i am so feeling the ... HE'LL ... HELL ... analogy ... that's deep!

    I saw the PINK, i saw the ORANGE, but i did not see PURPLE, when you said REDBLUE. I saw REDBLUE, with no combining of the 2 ... :eeek:

    More evidence that i think i've missed a class.

    Brother MetaSaience, just from what you've shared above, it seems it would be something that we all could do, if we knew how. Perhaps you'll consider hosting a class one day, just to give us the initial things to consider, when we know nothing to consider ... (thinking of my own self here, as there may be others just like me). Adding what you've written, to actually being able to hear you say the sounds, and walk us through it, would be really great. Please consider it.

    As it relates to the names folk choose to register under, i kinda understand the sexually oriented ones, as they speak for themselves in my mind ... but there are others i've seen across the net ... not necessarily here ... but like ... white nubian queen ... what are they saying? ... it just throws my mind completely off. You don't have to spend too much time on this part though ... i'm just say'n ... :)

    But yes ... please do consider hosting one class with us ... probably an hour long, to give us the basics, so we can then go forward understanding for ourselves the sounds and the names ... taking what you give us and growing from there. This is all so new to me, and as i've already said, i'm quite intrigued by it. I think the cultural conditioning has left me so unaware. It's like when Brother Mwalimu Baruti joined us ... oh my gosh ... my tongue just couldn't form his name properly for such a long time! As though it was foreign to me, but of course, it should not be! Sister Zulile is another, i have to think hard and focus intently on saying African names, because my tongue and mind have been conditioned to say and expect something different. I'm somewhat articulate in the sounds / names they've given us to expect, but when i get outside of that, i'm lost. Ya know?

    Again ... thanks so much for sharing this part with us ... but i feel i need the 101 class ! :)

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Mother Destee, you are right!

    I did begin this thread without explaining too many rules.
    Sometimes I do that on purpose to promote questions, which in turn leads me to finding the answers that I often overlook.

    The type of classes I envision for myself are more of a visual presentation, but I would love to wrap my mind around the concept of doing somewhat of a video on it. (PS: The site I was working on to host videos and shows is almost complete: www.blaccmecca.com, just running a few last tests.)

    I think it's a good thing to be able to look at names and words differently for awhile. The science behind what I am talking about is actually much deeper than what I've presented already. There's a book titled: "The Poetics of Grammar and the Metaphysics of Sound and Sign."

    There is also, metaphysical linguistics, internal realism, cognitive semantics - all of which speaks and points to the same ideas of how words paint pictures and carry Ancestral information.

    I learned numerology so I could break down names and words on a mathematical level, only to realize that numbers are only channels for frequency range, whereas sounds perform that range and as just as important as the numbers in the name or word themselves.

    [​IMG]

    Here's an easier way to think of that concept. Each bar on this xylophone makes a different sound. The rate by which that sound travels has a number.

    If you wanted to say: Hello, but striking this xylophone you would have to match the tone of the spoken word.

    So here's how it is done, let's take a simple but powerful word-
    GOD.

    We must ask ourselves why these letters in particular have been given such an honor, especially since the reverse is DOG.

    The power of a word is in it's frequency and vibration. Strike the xylophone, and that sound would create a different energy that you can define and use in music to affect the mind.

    GOD - is also GUIDE, and GUARD. Oh my Guard! We find this sound also in: Gun.

    In order to overstand some of this, you'd have to think primitively in a sense. It's about feeling sounds, as if your life depended on it. I might be an extremist in this area, but I usually meditate on the sound of a word for awhile and allow it to play itself out.

    Of course in Africa we didn't use the word GOD, but we used the sound, we used all sounds. And that's the trick. These sounds are associating themselves with something that is already in our subconscious.

    More to come....

    Around this time every year, we are reminded by many of conscious minds in the community of how closely related Santa is to Satan. I find this to be interesting as well. Both are perhaps created for the same means, to rob people of something.

    SANTA CLAUS
    SATAN CLAUSE


    [​IMG]

    And let's also point on the madness in some African people, who come from the hottest place on Earth to believe in a gift giving snow man.

    SATAN- SANTA- SATURN- SATURDAY

    Perhaps "Old Saint Nicholas" was better off in his primitive form as a God of agriculture, who brought "seeds" not gifts, in a sack. But what do we care about seeds these days? We want plasma screens and Iphones right.

    The "SA" sound means of the sun, serpent, wisdom or spirit. This is a common sound, and usually find it's true meaning by what is placed in front or after the sound.

    "NTA" also sounds like "Enter" or "Ether"
    "IN" and "N" are the same. It means to move into place...noted by the zigzag glyph, or "n".

    The "TA" sound, is the glyph for a "tree" plus air. The "T" also notes distance or height, meaning it's high up or moves away from. Words that begin with TA-Talk, Take, Tall, Table - have a bridge in meaning. To Talk you pull up from the diaphragm. To Take, you pull up an object and bring towards you. To be Tall is have height from ground to sky. A Table stands on the ground.

    These words help to paint a better picture of what the "TA" sound means to the subconscious or unconscious mind. "TA" paints of picture of ground to sky, to pull up from ground.

    So SA-N-TA is, one of spirit and wisdom, who moves in to put something in the ground, or take from the ground.

    SA-TAN is, one of spirit and wisdom, who is put into the ground.

    Combining "TA" with "N" would create that meaning. So what is a "TAN"

    Ground color, darker than previous. Because the ground is constantly exposed to Sun.

    WHAT'S IN A WORD GAME:

    Find a group of very short words that begin with the same sound, example:
    RAP, RAT, RAM, RACE.

    Not too many, just enough to get an idea, bridge or common theme between those words.

    The first sound in the word is what that thing is.
    The last sound is usually what it's going to do, or it's condition.

    The object here, is to sound out your words and allow certain visuals to come to mind. When you identify a sound, then you can compare the sound to other words with the same. For example:

    RA-CE= RAY-S

    What word has that last sound on the end? CE=S?

    This game should be easy for poets and lyricists.

    How about FACE. PLACE. MACE.

    Find the bridge for these words as well.
    These words have a common condition.

    Once you find a meaning for your sounds, you can start to build a library of what certain sounds mean. Of course, the deeper you look into your own subconscious mind, the deeper these meanings or more primitive these meanings will become.

    And for this very reason....I DO what I DO!

    Oh yes...I wanted to ask about the word "too".
    Often time, when WE communicate with each other, their is a tendency to add this adjective (sp?) as in..."too deep", "too analytical", "too....." For M.E., I have always experienced this as a bit insulting and has me wondering what the alternative is. Like, if someone suggest I am "too deep" are they also acknowledging that they are "shallow". Also, that is my response (depending on who i'm talking to i'll say it or not) that they are "too shallow".
    Yet, of primary concern now is what your take is on this word...."TOO"

    You are an inspiration for many Truetothecause. While many may not say it openly, you are. You use your knowledge and talent to bring life to this medium.

    Are you too truthful? Too intelligent? Too deep. Too much? Too analytical? I've been called over analytical myself. To some degree I overstand it, because it is possible to analyze the solution over and over until the solution itself becomes a problem. But they say Geniuses border on insanity, so maybe we have to be "over" or "too" in order to see whatever it is we need to see.

    Too is also Two, Tu, Tao.
    "To" is an indicating of travel, as in to-night. It's literally the crossing over from a to b. Which is why "2" holds the same sound. 2 is balance between 2 objects.If one said to-morrow, it indicates travel from now into another time period.

    If someone calls you "too deep" the visual is that of something being much further in the ground than it should be. "Too intelligent" someone who is too smart for their own good. "Too much" someone who brings a great deal of weight, more so than expected.

    To-day indicates the movement of day, it's never just "day" it's to-day, because time is constantly changing.

    It's an honor to be "too deep" because that means it's everyone else who needs to catch up, and for that purpose is why you are. All philosophical people re-think ideas, re-analyze, ramble on about what most of the world cannot see. They are here to set precedence, to give others a bar to reach for, and without such people we would never evolve.

    Queen True, you are just what our Ancestors ordered for us....and for those who may not enjoy that statement...Too bad.
