As a new Member of Somathread (thank you for the warm welcome ) , i would like to share with you a collection of PATTERNS ( info collected here and there :) ), if you'll allow me :
The Greek authors relate that the priests of Egypt had three ways of expressing their thoughts. "The first was clear and simple; the second, symbolic and figurative; the third, sacred and hieroglyphic. At their wish, the same work assumed a literal, a figurative or a transcendent meaning. This was the genius of their language. Heraclitus expressed the differences perfectly in designating them as speaking, signifying and concealing."
Considering Moses' education, there is no doubt that he wrote GeNesis in Egyptian hieroglyphs with three meanings.
Alchemically speaking : mercury, sulfur, and salt
Mem is believed to derive from the Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol for water + Nun is believed to be derived from an Egyptian hieroglyph of a snake; Nun was the embodiment of the primordial waters, existing in the chaos preceding creation ( (in Arabic, nūn means large fish or whale)
Truth: ( Mystery of Mem )
We can see the idea of life and death even more evidently in the Hebrew word for truth, eMet, which is made up of the first, middle and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet - Mem being the middle letter. In this word, Mem is the mediator between life and death, since the first two letters of the word spell em (mother - the beginning of life), and the last two letters spell met (death). Mem is the tie that figuratively mediates between the two and allows us to pass from life to death peacefully and vice versa. ( owL )
*one of the various spellings of the prophet of IsLam name is : MuheMet ( After 23 years of Prophet-hood Muhammad (p.b.u.h) passed away )
- K eMet Ancient Egypt is commonly referred to as 'km.t' , believed to be a reference to the black Nile Delta earth, as opposed to Deshret, the red barren desert land. The name Egypt was used accidentally by the Greeks after mistaking the Second name of the City of Thebes, "Aigyptos" for the country.

some words "built" around NM : the first that comes to mind is : MooN ;)
The food the soul eats on earth is that divine MaNNa that was rained down from heaven, but had to be scraped up off the earth, the perfect analogue of how mortals acquire their heavenly nutriment. The universal ancient tribal name for the divinity manifesting in the life of nature was MaNa, MaiNu, MaNitou.
Plato refers to divine obsession as a MaNia better than sober reason. An oMeN was a foresight of one's earthly fate. And the mystifying and baffling word ending prayers, aMeN .... . Memory in Latin is MeMiNi and the Greek Muse of Memory was MNemosyne
the word representing the divine light or power in things, NuMen .... NuMbers... NuMeNous ... HuMaN ...
- phroNeMa is a transliteration of the Greek word φρόνημα, which has the meanings of "mind", "spirit", "thought", "purpose", "will", and can have either a positive meaning ("high spirit", "resolution", "pride") or a bad sense ("presumption", "arrogance").
- In the New Testament, the word is used four times in the Saint Paul's Letter to the Romans: twice with "τῆς σαρκός" (of the flesh) and twice with "τοῦ πνεύματος" (of the spirit): "for the mind of the flesh [is] death, and the mind of the Spirit – life and peace; because the mind of the flesh [is] enmity to God ...and He who is searching the hearts hath known what [is] the MiN D of the Spirit" (Romans 8:6-7,27).
M and N, separate or conjoined, form the framework of hundreds of words relating to the condition of spirit-energy when immersed in matter
- Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.
The title MeLissaios – or Bee-man, has a feminine counterpart in Mediterranean cultures called MeLissa, of which Hilda Ransome informs us; “The title Melissa, the Bee, is a very ancient one; it constantly occurs in Greek Myths, meaning sometimes a priestess, sometimes a NyMph.”

NarMadā is a Sanskrit word meaning "the Giver of Pleasure"
The Sufis want to share, but they have to share with those who can profit from the sharing and can therefore continue the process of sharing with others to come. This requires the Sufis using their energy in 'teaching how to learn', before any sharing can take place. Sharing the sheer sensation of importance or of being a human being or even a servant of humanity, can be done by anyone, and is the sort of sharing that people are always straining towards. But the minimum human duty is to serve others: it is no great attainment. Feeling important is a vice, not a virtue, however concealed as participation in something noble.
