Organic Magyar Linguistics, part 1.b

The Basic Concepts Of Organic Linguistics

LIFE In Magyar Language and Quantum Physics

„...Humans of the Fairy Age [21], also referred to as the Golden Age, were at home in the land of universal consciousness. They knew and understood the forces that keep our world moving and Man consciously served the forces of creation, and through it he was a conscious part of Life Universal.

They recognized the parents of creation as the invisible Ancient Force (Ős-Erő) who stands above creation, symbolized in a dark coat decorated with stars, and the Ancient Matter (Ős-anyag) who was symbolized in white attire. The product of their immaculate embrace was Life, which arrived on the wings of light. Life contains the properties of the parents – force and matter – in perfect equilibrium. They made this knowledge part of the structure of their language too.

Ar — force and the masculine element of creation

Any — matter and the female element of creation

AR + ANY — the complete balance of the two as expressed in

ARANY — which is Light

Should someone accuse me of the arbitrary use of language I would like to quote some of the findings of modern physics dealing with the questions of Life and Light.

Matter.

Page 473

..Today’s scientists can perform many experiments that together reveal a great diversity of properties in matter. Some of these properties suggest that matter is continuous, with a wave-like characteristic. Others suggest that matter is discrete... it follows that matter is both particulate and wave-like.... at the present time we can only accept the dual nature of matter, and the inherent uncertainty that goes with it.” [22]

Force and motion:

Page 475

5. “ Force, torque. There are many kinds of force, but the name can be applied to any physical agency that causes (or tries to cause) a body to change its state of motion or internal strain..” [23]

Magyar language sharply distinguishes between force and energy (erő and erőny). It holds fast to the concept that Force is universal in its effect.

Energy

Energy is the capacity of a body or system for doing work.” [24]

Magyar consciousness knows of only one, universal energy, which is Life. All other forms of energy as mentioned in science today (physical, chemical energies, etc.) are but a part of this universal energy.

Light.

Light is an electromagnetic wave, that is, a wave whose carrier oscillations and fluctuations in the value of the electric and magnetic field strengths at each point along the path of the light ray. These carrier oscillations are perpendicular to the direction of travel of the wave, and hence light is an example of a transverse wave (sound waves are longitudinal waves)... When a light ray interacts with matter, energy is absorbed from the ray in finite bundles or quanta, which are best described in terms of wave packets. These quanta of light are called photons. Since photons can be thought as particles of light, light is regarded as having a dual nature — particles or waves.” [25]

The Magyar symbol of light is the isosceles cross (+). It was believed to symbolize the two crossed sticks with which the ancients generated fire.

But, according to the above, the isosceles cross leads us to a far more ancient thought. It symbolizes the crossed path of light. The symbol of fire was the isosceles cross turned on its side: x and clearly differentiated between the two: the limited, earthly fire and that of universal light. It is by no accident that the former (+) symbol is used in mathematics as a sign of the positive, of adding, increasing, and we still cross out something with the symbol x.

The symbol of the ancient Magyar priest, the Gyula, - whose duty was to maintain light, both spiritual and physical - was a bundle of rods, which may well represent the above mentioned “energy bundles”. In some agricultural regions bundles of wheat are called Jesus, whose role is identical with the pre Roman Christian Lord of the Seed. Magyar archaic prayers mention that these “bundles” are bundles of light. For further information see my study on the Magyar Christmas (Karácsony). All these Magyar linguistic connections clearly express the double nature of light and today’s scientists hold true the same facts. One must keep in mind that all these scientific data were embedded into the Magyar language at its birth, thousands of years before today’s science began, and this knowledge is a reflection of the Golden Age, the Age of Light.

Life.

What is life? Life is the most complex state of organization of matter known in the Universe.”

The simple chains of amino acids are called polypeptides. The proteins, the fundamental constituents of the living cells, are very special polypeptides. Not only does each protein have a very specific construction, but also it is folded into a special three-dimensional configuration, which it maintains as long as it is biologically active. The properties of the protein molecule cannot be deduced from its chemical constitution alone; the properties depend crucially on the natural selection operating at a pre-biological stage, favouring the formation of a small class of important proteins.” [26]

According to fragments of Magyar origin-sagas that have survived, God’s Son, who is Life, at the beginning of his creative role, descended into the depths of the Universe and brought up all the slumbering seeds. His father scattered these seeds upon the created world. Depending on where these seeds fell, they became plants, or fish, or land animals and finally men. Here we find the concept of the pre-biological selection process of today’s science. The fact that life on this earth depends upon its three dimensional structure opens further vistas to the Magyar saying: “Three is the Magyar truth” („Három a magyar igazság”) especially when we take into consideration that the Magyar word for truth, and light is the same (ég/ig). According to scientists as long as a protein is biologically active, in other words, as long as it is alive, it works according to such a triple structure.

The way in which protein molecules are made raises a fundamental question: which came first, the protein or the nucleic acid, that contains the protein plan? What did it evolve from, and how?”

Adorján Magyar mentioned that it is no accident that all our ancient ethnic groups used a red and sour fruit as their symbol of life. He proposed that these fruits may well be symbols of the nucleic acid. A Celtic legend talks about “some sour fruits” of the Tree of Life that the fairies guard, but at the birth of this legend the name of this fruit was already forgotten in their culture. They must have met the concept during their stay within the Carpathian Basin and took it with them to the British Isles. These sour fruits tell us about the ancients’ knowledge of the structure of cells and it also solves the seemingly unsolvable question.

The onset of natural selection in some primitive form is often considered to be the point at which life began. An interesting and possibly very important fact about the genetic code is its ubiquity on Earth. The DNA molecule contains the plans of proteins in a coded form where each amino acid of the protein is described by three successive rungs of the DNA ladder. What is striking is that the coding is identical in all terrestrial life. A possible implication of this is that all life descended from a single ancestral system.... The single ancestor theory is not the only possible explanation of the universality of the genetic code, but there are other peculiarities of the code which are also consistent with this particular theory.”

According to Magyar traditions God (Ég) is one (Egy), universal (egyetemes) and is the ancestor of all. These names are linguistically the same. He is the ancient force, the ancient “doer” (Ős Tenő). His Firstborn is also universal, he is the universal energy and he is Life who arrives on the wings of light. He is the Golden God of the Magyars. He is the active principle of Creation, the Creator of our material world. All that is, is descended from this one ancestor and all carry this memory in their genetic makeup.

There is an independent piece of evidence also favouring the single ancestor theory. This concerns the optical activity of amino acids. In the laboratory, any complex amino acid can exist in one of the two forms which differ only in that they are mirror images of one another. The forms are referred to as right-handed (dextro) and left-handed (laevo) in analogy with the gloves of a pair that are identical in all respects except that they are mirror images. In biological systems, all amino acids are left-handed. (This is not just a matter of semantics, a left-handed molecule rotates the plane of vibration of an electromagnetic wave one way, while a right handed molecule rotates it the other way. Thus handedness can be measured using polarized light.) There is no obvious reason why both forms of amino acid should not coexist; if amino acids are made in a laboratory, both forms are produced in equal amounts. This is true of the Miller-Orgel type of experiment. One way of explaining the left-handedness phenomena is in terms of life being descended from a single event and place.”

I have often mentioned in this book the fact that Hungarian art always uses a mirror construction. This is a reflection of the Magyar mirroring world-view. It also represents the fact that our ancients knew that energy and matter are essentially the same, that the two can be transformed into one another; this knowledge is again part of the Magyar language structure. Today’s science is only now approaching the knowledge of the ancients.

Explanations of the pictures at the end of this section are as follows:

Illustration 1.

The picture of the lower left line: It shows the endoplasmic reticulum, where most proteins are created. The nature of the protein is determined by its RNA. The “laboratory” where the proteins are created holds the finger-print of the creator..., and beyond this it also reminds us of the ancient Magyar wave designs. Let us compare this with the Magyar horn-decoration below it:

Explanation of the following picture: This is a typical protein molecule. The chain of amino acids forms within itself several times and thus it takes on the shape of a sphere to accommodate molecules that are yet to be taken up.

According to this, matter here and in the Universe assumes a round, globular shape. This shape is called mag in Magyar and it is the basis of the Magyar language and designs.

Page 226. picture no. 2:

It is an illustration of the mirroring world-view. The two-headed “Sunbird” is a symbol of light’s double nature. The center of the sun here shows the square, electromagnetic lines that were discovered in the sun by scientists only recently. The flower, which grows out of this, represents a flower (virág), light and world (világ), which is expressed with the same word. It also helps us decide which came first: the hen or the egg, the nucleic acid or the cell.

Illustration 3.

This is another fine example of this mirroring world-view. I have to emphasize again that there is no Magyar folk art that is not constructed in this mirroring manner. One has to think of the optical activity of amino acids and their right, or left-handed appearance in the laboratory.

Illustration 4. is the image of the DNA molecule. According to Magyar legends, the thread of life is woven by fairies and according to some legends, there are pearls woven into these threads. When the thread of life breaks, the pearls scatter and the life of the person comes to an end.

Illustration 5. shows the proteins of the muscles. Let us compare them with

Illustration 6., which shows an ancient woven fabric out of which — according to legends — the fairies weave “soldiers”. The Magyar name of soldier is katona and it has a large number of linguistic connections with the words of hand, to bind (kéz, köt, etc.). The red patterns of the fabric are the “soldiers”, while the entire woven piece is a replica of the structure of muscles.

Illustration 7. This is the illustration of life’s appearance on this planet according to today’s science. According to this, the vertebrates appeared 500 million years ago. The ancient legends of life in the Carpathian Basin mirror life of some 25-30 million years ago. [27]

We have little idea of the vast knowledge of our ancients. Their knowledge in their time was public knowledge, since its images were sewn into their embroideries, are parts of the carvings of the men folk and even their everyday utensils were used to hold and preserve their knowledge of the Universe. Their mirroring world-view begins with the thready kusza, which is the image of the world in the process of formation. This too is part of their knowledge, which has survived to our day.

We learn from the above the following:

Our ancestors were fully aware of the double nature of matter: particle and wave like. We learn of this knowledge since it was built into the structure of language concerning Force and Matter. The Word, or if I so desire, the ORGANIC CONNECTION BETWEEN LANGUAGE AND CREATION EXISTED FROM THE FIRST MOMENT ON. THIS FACT BEARS TESTIMONY OF THE ANCESTRAL NATURE OF THIS LANGUAGE.

They also knew the difference between force and energy just as much as today’s science makes a difference between the two. The force represents a potential for tension, which can give rise to action [31]; the energy means a work process.

Scientists today recognize that light is a transverse wave. Our ancestors knew this too since they symbolized light with an isosceles cross. Later societies, which became dissociated with this ancient knowledge, believed that the cross represented the two sticks which were rubbed together when starting a fire. Both are true since truth is universal in all layers of consciousness. At the same time our ancestors knew that truth (Igazság) is light (Ég) and one with God (Ég). These words included also the knowledge that, at the time of creation, fire and heat were generated. In those days this knowledge was built within the word roots of the language; it was enough to say the corresponding vowel and consonant and the entire mythology was before us. Today we have to say a full sentence to achieve a similar level of understanding: “In the light of truth.” So the Sun-cross of our ancestors was the symbol of this transverse light wave and later also of the sun which transmits this light to us. Our mothers transmitted this knowledge through their embroideries, where the knowledge that the world (világ) is made of light (világ) was expressed with cross stitches. They captured the moments of creation in the material (embroidery) they worked with. The expression of this world-view is particularly strong in Hungary where the old Magyar religion survived the longest, in the once Avar-Magyar region, where it can still be found. There is still an organic bond between consciousness and symbol.

The word Keresztfa (transl.: cross of wood) is unique to the Magyar language. These crosses are all over the Magyar landscape (where they escaped the ravages of war and Communism) on the roadsides, at the edge of agricultural fields. Today it is believed that they originated with Jesus’ cross. This cross was used thousands of years before Christianity and it was the symbol of light emerging from the Sun. [32] Waddell brings these “wooden crosses” into connection with the Sungod, Tas, and the resurrection in early Trojan and early Sumerian symbology. Tas was the name of one of the Princes who participated in founding the modern Hungarian state eleven hundred years ago.

Today’s science talks about a pre-biological age of natural selection in connection with the development of polypeptides. Their construction is “very specific and shows a three dimensional configuration.” [33] This natural selection, which occurs at a pre-biological state had its beginning in the world of consciousness and became a reality which we enjoy even in the present.

The ancient shape of creation is a globe. As consciousness turned toward matter this form became the symbol of perfection, of completeness. The round kernel (Mag) was the ancient symbol Magyars in the Carpathian Basin, both in language and materially. We have also seen that the protein molecule during its evolutionary process tries to achieve the form of a sphere. Even today we may say: “...Let’s round it out...” meaning to bring a process to perfection. This sentence lets ancient consciousness seep into our daily lives.

The endoplasmic reticulum draws lines around a central sphere (gömb ), kernel (mag) and the same image is repeated in our folk art, beginning in the Neolithic and continues even today. The ancient sound of the sphere ( gömb), or (mag) uses the mild G sound as mode of expression even today in the quiet voices of very young babies who remind us of the miracle of the first beginning. The environment of this soft G is the world of low hills, babbling (gurgulyázó [34]) brooks, round fruits and lilies of the valley (gyöngyvirág) grown from tubers (gumó). According to our ethnic name (which has its roots in a world when mankind did not develop the social and political structures of national existence), which is Magyar, we too were part of this landscape, as the people of the Mag (kernel, seed) and are children of Mag-Úr (Lord of the Kernel, the Sun). Again there is a complete and organic connection between the world of consciousness, matter, sound and picture.

Hungarian linguists educated in a foreign-centered academia, to which they became fully committed, try to originate the Magyar name from the Mansi. With this act they contradict their own and the Indo-European linguistic rules, since the G sound will never change into N according to the presently held theories. In order to understand the contact of origin of the Magyar and Mansi names we have to look into two different word groups: the m-g and the m-n group, and their world view.

It is important information concerning the optical activity of amino acids that any complex amino acid can appear in only two forms and these are one another’s mirror images. This phenomenon is reflected in the Magyar language’s mirroring capacity, which either enlightens two different sides of the same object or idea on the elemental level of creation, or it expresses the interchangeability of force and matter.

I would like to illustrate the former through the gamó, gömb and mag words, where gamó means a bent form which is in the process of becoming a sphere, a mag, as we have seen in the illustration of the development of protein molecules; the gömb (sphere) means the finished product and mag its stabilized state. Linguistically the gömb and mag are one another’s reciprocals.

This mirroring world-view appears in all branches of Magyar art from the painted eggs to embroideries among which I believe the two headed sunbird to be a very important pattern inherited from great antiquity.

Not only the amino acids’ activity was preserved by our ancestors and transmitted still, but also the patterns of their weaving are reflections of the body’s “fabric”, the muscle. The picture of the DNA molecule does not need further explanation; the pearly life threads of the fairies are clearly visible. Again, as always the consciousness and the symbol go hand in hand.

The ancient prayers, which cradle ancient memories, talk about the order of creation up to our days, wrapped in Christian clothing:

...I have a Lord Jesus Christ,

Above my head there is a ragling

He sat upon it

Its branch bore a bud

The bud bore a flower,

the flower bore St. Anna

St. Anna bore the Virgin Mary

The Virgin Mary bore her holy Son. [35]

In this pre-Christian vernacular, the above tells us the following: The sky’s (Ég) tree bore a bud (the round atoms and suns), these bore their flower (virág and világ, world and light are synonymous in Magyar), St. Anna, the Great Madonna, is the personification of creation’s ancient matter, who bears worlds in her womb and gives life to our world (the Virgin Mary) too. God sits above all these, as on top of the holding raft of a roof, in eternal magnificence. The same world-view is reflected in all the other ancient prayers. [36]

According to our ancient consciousness the first stirring of Force, the masculine principle, brought the base of creation to the surface of creation’s waves, which is matter and this first motion was connected to sound. The Word of God (Íge), the crow of the Cock, the laughter of creation, its ringing (like the sounds of small bells) were the sounds of the first beginning. Here I need to mention the Magyar word for song: dal, which is part of a huge word group. Dániel Mindszenti [37], the great teacher of 19th century Magyars, believed that music was the universal language of Mankind: “As I am looking at its origin: music is the product of the forces of nature, consequently the musical talent is born with us humans and for this reason as long as humanity resides on this earth, this talent will always be with us.”

The composer and educator, Zoltán Kodály, wrote: “What could the motivation have been which sent me against all odds on the straight paths, sometimes flying, sometimes dragging the wagon of my life? A hopeless, unreciprocated love affair. A love of the people whose visible one-thousand year old history, and even more her several thousand year old history, which lives on in her language, draws me with unparalleled strength....” [38] Later: “The basic layer of the soul cannot be built from two different materials. Man can have only one mother tongue, musically speaking too...” [39]

So the above quoted teachers and musicians recognized the first stirrings of our beginnings, including the language within the basic layer of the soul, in our ancient consciousness. These layers have an organic connection in both music and language. Later we shall see how this organic connection influences human characteristics, man’s calling, his aesthetic values, structure of society: his entire life.

The two-consonantal, monosyllabic word dal expresses the early connection with matter during creation. It shows the time when matter still flowed in soft waves toward its fulfillment. In other words: The song of God is the created world itself. The singing God’s work is song: he creates song, and its melody is the order of the singing Universe. With his song the world will be rounded out. (In Magyar: Dalos Isten dolga dal: dalt dall [40], s dallama a dalos világ rendje . Dalával dalmahodik a világ.) We may realize that in Magyar all this is expressed within the borders of the D-L consonantal group. Related to the dal is our dél (noon, south) word, which is the brightest time of the day, or the sunniest part of the world; the word deli, meaning a stately, splendidly attired person. Our God of Song is deli (shiny), dalos (singing) and dolgos (diligent.). The messenger of this two-consonantal, beginning world and God is the Magyar Ákos, or Ékes, the Shining Stag, the Miracle Stag of the Magyars, who carries the stars and galaxies, in fact all creation upon his body and helps to dispel the darkness with his songs, with which he teaches humanity. The name of this early Universe is dalhon, the land of songs, which one would like to delegate into the world of storybooks these days. Here I need to mention that man cannot imagine anything that has no base in his consciousness. The greater a person’s creative talent is, the more sensitive his “antennae” are to tune in to the knowledge that surrounds him, which is part of the Universe, the more perfect his creations will be, with which he blesses the world. Today’s measuring instruments show for example that some of Mozart’s music transcends the three dimensional world and the dances of the honey-bees reach their full significance in the sixth dimension.

The following concepts belong in this singing world: the shiny and colorful delice bird, the dalimadár, which is also a bird with a beautiful voice, dalmahodás (rounding out). The earthly messenger of the singing God is the Táltos, the ancient priest of the Magyars, who teaches mankind with gentle songs and not laws etched into stone. The dalos Táltos [41],(the singing Táltos) keeps the wonders of this singing Universe alive in the people’s souls, and his song is always in the creative service of the Universe.

_____________

[21] I call the beings of light, ancestors of light – who partook in creation – Tündér (fairy), based upon linguistic and contextual evidence, and the age in which they lived I call the Age of Fairies, which began with the Golden Age (Arany kor). The word arany originally meant shine, light, in which energy and matter was in perfect balance (ar + any).
