Thanks for the link to this info. I went to thechronicleproject.org and skimmed every page on their site. It is exciting to think that the language that the Hebrew scriptures was written in could have been designed to prevent mistranslation and encroachment from outside languages. I've heard some of the 'bible code' buffs say that the bible could have 'self-correcting' codes built into the text, but none of them have said that they have found the method of deciphering the pattern used to do that.
It definitely isn't easy to assemble the meanings of each 'glyph' or pictograph, put them together, and figure out the meanings of words. There are too many directions you can go with each concept behind the individual glyphs. That's probably where it helps to be fluent in Hebrew to start with, and have an "eastern mindset" to work from. In a lot of the three glyph words, it also seems you would have to know which glyph is acting on the others. An example would be their entry for samek-gimmel-resh.
samek "to enclose"
gimmel "to fold"
resh "to spread out"
Their summary of the glyph concepts is "to close up spread out" which seems like it could mean a lot of things. The first two glyphs are contrary in meaning to the third. It could be describing the packing of clothes for a trip and then taking them back out when you get there. So I guess you need to know that the resh concept of "spread out" is referring to the "enclosure" glyph and denotes folding shut an enclosure that had been spread out (open?) and not referring to spreading out that which was previously enclosed and folded.
Looking at their lists of words reminded me of something that I noticed a few years ago, but have never had the time to look into. It seems like some of the letters/glyphs don't like each other very much. Certain letters don't appear next to each other in words. It would be interesting to see which letters are like this, and maybe see if there might be a reason why. I don't have the patience, the memory, or the time for that kind of work and am not computer savvy enough to make one of them do the work for me.
I have also wondered in the past whether there are two missing letters, and whether twenty-four letters could be symbolically ties to the twenty-four "elders"? I know Jeff Benner at ancient-hebrew.org says that the letter 'ayin' in the bible text was once two separate letters in ancient Hebrew pictographs, since many of the ayin words in modern Hebrew have two meanings with one of them being considered evil or associated with darkness, which in ancient Hebrew would have been the words having the "twisted rope" pictograph with a rough "gh" sound instead of an ayin. It is interesting. By the way, a 24 letter aleph-bet would not have to endanger the wheel of the bible. Every wheel needs a hub and a rim, too!
Getting back to the Canadians and their shaking of the apple cart (I can't tell if it has been tipped over or not yet) - I am none too happy about the idea of re-learning the meanings of a lot of Hebrew words and then going back and looking at all of the things I thought the bible said to see how the new (or maybe original) meanings change the understanding of the text. But it definitely looks like something that should be looked at. I noticed a long time ago a verse about "interpreters" or scribes (or some similar word that I can't remember right now) transgressing against the law, and I looked up the word and found it had as it's basic meaning "dividers". Since the Torah is one long string of letters, it made me wonder how many different ways the letters could be "divided" into words and not make gibberish of the letters coming before and after the divisions, or destroy the context of the surrounding text. Maybe the scribes "divided" wrong?
One thing I didn't like about the pages at the chronicle project was the way they lettered their book headings with "decorative" letters having all kinds of holes and projections sticking out of them. It reminds me of the logo for bio-hazardous waste and other logos for unsavory concepts. The bio-hazard logo seems like it was purposely designed to produce a repulsive reaction in people. That is similar to what I felt when I saw their lettering.
