Sharing Knowledge Between Cultures

Sharing Knowledge Between Cultures

Indus yogi dictates to a Phoenician scribe.  Harappan seals show a god in yogic pose. Just as these spirits animate our lives, the learned scribes decided they should inspire our language : all the Middle East alphabets kept remarkably to 22 letters, from about the 11 th century BC; apparently, like the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, reflecting the 22 Paths of the Tree of Life. ( see Hebrew alphabet, Paths of the Tree of Life, links).  And inspire our games. Our common deck of cards derive from the Tarot deck which also pictures the 22 Paths with the ten Shining Ones of the Tree, with the family of four elements.

The Harappan alphabet of about 2300 – 1750 B.C . may or may not be connected to the earliest Phoenician version, dated about 1700 B.C , which eventually produced the 22 letter Phoenician (Canaanite) model for the Hebrew version. The possibility models the globalisation of the knowledge and wisdom of the Tree, clearly evidenced from ancient days. Egyptian and Babylonian gods reveal the Tree’s secrets at this time. Chinese history attributes the origin of the Taoist trigrams to an similar antiquity. We should expect the Harappans shared this knowledge. This speculation serves first to stretch our minds to the advanced international network of knowledge that was the ancient world.
