Having often asked this question of myself today, I thought I’ll ask it of you….
What is Free? What does it mean to be free?
I am FREE TO….
I am FREE FROM….
I am FREE OF….
Now this here word, FREE is, would you believe it, a LOCK?
The more we say, Free, the more we are locked in!
Because of two tells if you will and none of them named Will.I.Am 😉
Tell a) The letters, The Let Herssssss….. some of you who know the back-story to my work will get this like greased lightening….English, my friends, is a CONSTRUCT. We do not speak ANY NATURAL LANGUAGES anymore, those are all with the AB-oroginals, who have had their tongues cut-off among other such horrors, so that all natural tongues might be wiped out.
F: F-inish. Three layered life, three layered Alpha-Beta….F has the High and mid line blocked….only way open is down. Yes, that is how letters are constructed. Fin, Finish, Fail, Frail, Flail…..
R: The BIGGEST LETTER TRAP. The R-ight angle. Notice though, that the letter R lacks any right angles what-so-ever. Hmmmmmmm…curious….The RIGHT angle is 90 Degrees.
And yet, it is clear that 90 degrees is the WRONG angle for humans. Most un-natural….ever sat in a 90 degree backed chair for a bit? Ever find the RIGHT angle in nature? Hmmmmmmm?
Right is actually RONG!
At best, this a good human “Right” angle and look at all the flaws….
E: THE END…. E….. All levels SHUT OFF….trapped. THE END.
So now, how free is free?
If you think the above is a stretch ( no, not the yoga lady, the premise) then I’m afraid you have a mind-set. you need a mind-flex 😉
Tell b) FREE-DOM…. As the dictionary of etymology informs us, the source of all DOMs (DOMINION ANYONE?) is actually DOOM.
doom (n.) Old English dom “law, judgment, condemnation,” from Proto-Germanic *domaz (cognates: Old Saxon and Old Frisian dom, Old Norse domr, Old High German tuom, Gothic doms“judgment, decree”), from PIE root *dhe- “to set, place, put, do” (cognates: Sanskrit dhaman- “law,” Greek themis “law,” Lithuanian dome “attention;” see factitious). A book of laws in Old English was a dombec. Modern sense of “fate, ruin, destruction” is c. 1600, from the finality of the Christian Judgment Day.
Here are your pre-conceived notions….
C-Rumbling, eh? Mine have.
So, still want your FREEDOOM?
The states that these “trap” words as I call them try and describe (de-scribe? hmmmmm….) are actually Un-wordable.
What an opportunity for the one’s who write our language to step right in….
More on this another time, looking over it, seems faaaar out….but such is how IT IS! 🙂
But there is no blame to be cast. No indignant screeches that I have been lied to.
Just a simple change of perception.
Don’t say these two words, as an exercise and just BE THEM….
oh, and while you are at it, love freely 😉
Big hugs all around…..
and since a picture is worth a thousand words and a movie worth a billion, here is a short clip about the story of our enslavement.
Not a Stefan M. follower, do not agree with a lot of what he preaches, but this…..is brilliant and dis-turbing as all heck….
Watch it, pass it around…
And be good…
and sometimes just downright ugly 😉
