In the News (ScienceNews): “The world’s earliest alphabet, inscribed on stone slabs at several Egyptian sites, was an early form of Hebrew, a controversial new analysis concludes.
“Israelites living in Egypt transformed that civilization’s hieroglyphics into Hebrew 1.0 more than 3,800 years ago, at a time when the Old Testament describes Jews living in Egypt, says archaeologist and epigrapher Douglas Petrovich of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada. Hebrew speakers seeking a way to communicate in writing with other Egyptian Jews simplified the pharaohs’ complex hieroglyphic writing system into 22 alphabetic letters, Petrovich proposed on November 17 at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research.”
My Comment: A mistake is concealed here.
The Jews didn’t borrow anything from anyone because the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are derived from the spiritual structure of three levels (Bina, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut) of the upper world that influence us. So humanity began to realize them subconsciously. The Hebrew alphabet comes from Adam, who discovered them 5,777 years ago and used them himself. So in any case, humanity will have to reconsider archaeology, paleontology, and everything else, and will then agree that everything comes from there.
If there were any records before then, as far as it seems, these were notes and symbols, but an alphabet by which we connect a collection of images into a meaningful word and create a sentence from the words, meaning a completed thought on a particular subject that even after generations can be transmitted, something like this didn’t exist anywhere. This is only because the Jews had a connection with the upper world and specifically took the terms and the method from there.
In other words, there are three levels between us and the upper world that are filled with a particular collection of forces that become the letters in our world.
Each spiritual force is a letter. We get a word by connecting them together and by connecting words, we get a thought.
Question: Did all signs and hieroglyphs appear after these letters?
Answer: Certainly. The Hebrew letters are the foundation of written languages, including Chinese and Japanese.
Question: Why do we have no way of proving this?
Answer: Why should we prove it? Humanity is searching in its own way based on excavations, motivations, opinions, and theories. But this was written in our books thousands of years ago. Nobody wants to pay attention to this because it contradicts the Christian and Muslim approach. So it is preferable that we remain quietly on the side.
The different languages, the alphabet, and everything else came from ancient Babylon and this reached ancient Babylon from Adam.
Horizontal and vertical lines and other elements of the letters are derived from those forces that we try to symbolize, because each letter is a symbol of a particular spiritual expression, of a particular spiritual form, of a force, and so forth. They are like a seal. So there are 22 such seals, which are absolutely sufficient for conveying the higher spiritual characteristics of Bina and the lower spiritual characteristics of Malchut.
Nothing more or less is required. That is how the letters must be conveyed. However, there have been permutations, their replacement. In general, this is a deep, complex system, because everything is found in the letters.
So in this way, the secret of the letters, their combinations, their formation, and their development is still waiting to be discovered. There are laws according to which it is impossible to modify anything in the Hebrew alphabet. It is impossible to change even one letter, even one line, font, or embellishment. Everything about the calligraphy must be preserved.
In computer programs, we find twenty thousand different fonts. This has no connection to truth. There exists only one font called “Ktav sofer – scribal writing” through which everything is presented in the Torah, because there the precise graphic form expresses the inner content of the force in the letter.
