Goodbye & Hello
This week we are officially saying goodbye to The Language Matrix – the ultimate wordplay! and hello to Sherlocking Insightful Answers by morphing questions, is nothing but WordPlay!
Thanks to everyone who contributed their ideas and thoughts for the renaming of The Language Matrix as explained in the last post.
In moving forward I will no longer refer to the morphing process of extracting hidden wisdom from words as The Language Matrix, but by the three words Sherlocking Insightful Answers.
In time, you will be comfortable calling it Sherlocking or SIA, the three-lettered acronym of first letters from Sherlocking Insightful Answers.
The image is intended to convey three ideas. Sherlocking Insightful Answers is:
- a playful word morphing process requiring letter manipulation.
- about insightful ANSWERS and SOLUTIONS that expand your awareness
and give you clear directions.
- a joyful confidence boosting self-directing experience.
Three Events from my Tapestry of Life
In order to share their significance to me and their relationship to Sherlocking Insightful Answers, I need to tell you about three events from my Tapestry of Life, in relation to Ancient Egypt. Since 1989, my passion has been researching the Ancient Mysteries and I am particularly drawn to the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
Event 1: Seeing the 1955 epic film The Land of the Pharaohs
The Land of the Pharaohs was a fictional account of the building of the First Wonder of the Ancient World – The Great Pyramid. I was enthralled, not by the Hollywood script, but the ingenious planning and construction scenes of the captured Jewish architect, whose ‘secretive closing mechanism’ ensured the impregnability of Pharaoh Khufu’s tomb after his mummification.
Event 2: Winning the Year 8 History prize
In my first year of high school there was a History competition, where we had to design a poster. I had a great time collecting images and material and gluing them on to the cardboard poster.
What made winning the Year 8 History Prize memorable, was not the collection of the History prize in front of the assembly of 1300 students, but the fact that I was the only boy out of the five finalists.
The prize was a book on Tutankhamen with this glossy image on its cover.
Event 3: Hearing who were the Wisdom Teachers of the Ancient World
All my early research into the Ancient Mysteries, back in 1989, kept referring back to Ancient Egypt. Later my curiosity was peaked by the following two statements.
Plato in his “Timaeus” writes of a conversation between Solon, one of the Seven Sages of Ancient Greece and an Egyptian priest from the Nile Delta. “You Greeks are children, and there’s not an old man among you”, said the priest.
Idea that others of The Seven Sages, such as Thales and Pythagoras, went to Ancient Egypt to learn from the recognised masters of old wisdom.
Why do the capital letters S, I and A stand out?
The three first letters S, I and A spell out S-I-A or SIA, which doesn’t have a common use meaning in English dictionaries. However, in the Ancient Egyptian or Kemetic language, SIA takes on meanings of perception, understanding, intelligence and even consciousness.
Recall, that I have stated that The Language Matrix, now replaced by Sherlocking Insightful Answers is a process of finding hidden WISDOM in words.
The Ancient Egyptian, Pyramid Texts describe SIA as “he who is in charge of WISDOM.”
SIA was the divine personification of perception, in particular the ACCURATE PERCEPTION which is necessary in order to UNDERSTAND the truth.
When you apply the morphing process of Sherlocking and play with words, you will find answers or solutions that are only meaningful to you, because you have had direct experience and UNDERSTAND their truth.
SIA, PERCEPTION, in particular ACCURATE PERCEPTION and UNDERSTANDING are inseparable.
The PERCEPTION and UNDERSTANDING meanings of the Ancient Egyptian word SIA, are neatly woven into the definitions of the English word, INSIGHT.
- INSIGHT can be defined as the act or result of UNDERSTANDING the inner nature of things or of seeing intuitively (called noesis in Greek).
- INSIGHT can mean the power of acute observation and deduction, discernment, and PERCEPTION, called intellection or noesis.
Simple WordPlay Reversal
Both the Ancient Egyptians and Hebrews were fond of word play.
Timothy Hogan in The Alchemical Keys to Masonic Ritual states:
“… We see similar WORD PLAY in the ancient Egyptian word for “brain” – “AIS”,
which when reversed becomes “SIA” – the ancient Egyptian word for “consciousness”.
Is Science catching up to Ancient Egyptians?
Here is the opening to an article in NewScientist online dated 2 July 2014
By Helen Thomson
ONE moment you’re conscious, the next you’re not. For the first time, researchers have switched off consciousness by electrically stimulating a single brain area.
Scientists have been probing individual regions of the brain for over a century, exploring their function by zapping them with electricity and temporarily putting them out of action. Despite this, they have never been able to turn off consciousness – until now.
Although only tested in one person, the discovery suggests that a single area – the claustrum – might be integral to combining disparate brain activity into a seamless package of thoughts, sensations and emotions. It takes us a step closer to answering a problem that has confounded scientists and philosophers for millennia – namely how our conscious awareness arises.
Can you see that modern scientists are linking Consciousness (SIA) and the Brain (AIS), a known worded connection made many, many thousands of years ago,by the Ancient Egyptians?
Play on Words
Is it possible that the Ancient Egyptians found other meaningful answers to questions they posed and deliberately created meaningful links, for those trained to have eyes that see and ears that hear, by using a play on words?
