Seriously, what?--Token Conservative (talk) 04:14, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

The subject's huge: kabbalah, numerology, runes, and there's a great deal more to be said about it, I think. Like I said, this is a modest beginning. And you have to admit: that's how it seems to have worked out. - Smerdis of Tlön (talk) 04:28, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Dislike the joke I started this with if you want, but there is a great deal of somewhat on-mission material to talk about here. - Smerdis of Tlön (talk) 14:48, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

About Minoan 'Ku-Ro': The idea that 'ku-ro,' means 'all' is far less than decisive even though it probably indicates totals. It could very well be related to an Indo-European root for 'flock,' rather than the Semitic for 'all.' Po-To-Ku-Ro indicates a grand-total, and that wouldn't make much sense if 'ku-ro' was a Semitic borrowing of a word for 'all.' Also, most experts agree that Ki-Ro indicates deficits of some type as well, which I don't believe would make a ton of sense if it were a Semitic borrowing.

Literacy[edit]

There are various forms of literacy - which will include 'recognising what specific groups of letters (in a foreign language) mean' and 'understanding signs and symbols (eg road signs). Anna Livia (talk) 17:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

The Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden[edit]

The snake was teaching Eve the written alphabet - the equivalent of 'A is for apple...' (so she and Adam could record all the names of things). The fig leaves were the first drafts of the Edenic encyclopaedia recycled/upcycled (or were actually being used for 'images'). Anna Livia (talk) 12:30, 26 November 2020 (UTC)
