The Language of Nature

The Egyptian Medu-Netru (hieroglyphs) are the foundation for all languages. They embody natural laws and depict living creatures with their magical symbolism.

The Medu-Netru is a sacred language. It uses symbols, not letters. A symbol exists in nature and has a geometrical value,volume, sound, energy, colour and effect, while a letter is merely an intellectual line drawing. Symbols are assigned to a particular colour. Each colour signifies functions and reflects laws. Although the deciphering of the Rosetta Stone and later discoveries have provided a basic understanding of the language, most scholars have been unable to penetrate the symbolism itself. Understanding the symbolism leads you to understanding the words themselves. An insight into the symbolism will be given this evening.
