Henry David (Loving) Thoreau

Thoreau on Neuroplasticity

Linda Graham

 Henry David Thoreau, beloved American author, poet, philosopher and transcendentalist(1817-1862):”As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.

He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul’s estate.

How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.

Many go fishing without knowing it is not fish they are after.

The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruits, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

Our life is frittered away by detail.  Simplify, simplify.

As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Aim above morality.  Be not simply good; be good for something.

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right.  But do not care to convince him.  Men will believe what they see.  Let them see.

Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion.  What a man thinks of himself is what determines, or rather indicates, his fate.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.  Now put the foundations under them.

It is never too late to give up your prejudices.

To regret deeply is to live afresh.

It is as hard to see one’s self as to look backwards without turning around.

If once advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Thank God men cannot as yet fly and lay waste the sky as well as the earth!

What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?

The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling.  Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.

The greatest compliment that was ever paid me was when someone asked me what I thought, and attended to my answer.

We much have infinite faith in each other.  If we have not, we must never let it leak out that we have not.

 

Bridge is Finished

Bridge is Finished

The Strongbridge Database is completed.  Faster, easier searching for the original meaning of any of the original words in the original documebridge with red heifers crossing opposite directsionnts.

King James Bible has 826,812 words.  Until now the only way to search was by those 826,812 words.  Now we can cross the bridge to yesterday’s world of words and search from that position.

The vocabulary of the 66 books written by various authors between 1845BC – 70AD is approximately 12,000 to 13,000 words.  To understand the literal meanings of those few words is not a daunting task.

The JSE assigns 8,674#s OT and  5,624#s NT.  However many of them are duplicate in meaning.  Duplicated due to different transliterations due to different eras and different authors and due to capitalization which is not a function of the older languages.

Often a transliterated group of letters is given it own number with its actual meaning.  The same transliterated group of letters was given a different number because it had been capilitized and therefore appears to be a different word.  However the meaning does not change.  Fire means fire no matter what symbols are used to represent its meaning.

The capitalization was most likely first applied in the Greek rendition and then reapplied in the Old English, King James English and carried forward into modern English.

Knowing the true meaning of any word despite its transliteration is vital to reconstructing the original text.

What use to take days/weeks to accomplish can now be done in a few hours.  That is if we are searching to reconstitute the entire verse; to gain understanding and wisdom.  As opposed to getting some understanding about a singular word which we then plug into the religious myth we already believe.

OLD AND NEW DATA

The database is not new information;  but presented in a very simply way.  Instead of looking at a paragraph of information, it is seen on a single line presented in 9 columns.  With the entire word structure in subsequent lines.  This makes all the connections described in the original JSE, available at a single glance.

We no longer need to search through the paragraph to determine what the actual meaning was. Only to discover we have to thumb through several other pages to get the whole picture, the entire word structure.   Any single word meaning is found in the column of word meanings. Followed by the entire structure as laid out in the JSE.

We can now reconstitute any scripture quickly, accurately and easily.

NEW WAY

Unused Root Words With No JSE Number

It does reveal some information previously very cumbersome to expose beyond a single word. Those words (in the database) are referred to as unused root words in the Old Testament and unnumbered words in the New Testament.  The meanings of these words was established in the JSE but no number was assigned.  The reason no number was assigned is they were simply part of a description of  specific words; which were given numbers.

Some of these unnumbered root words are the basis for a huge number of other numbered words.

For instance the unused root word twist is the basis for 2/16 words INTERPRETED as God and a plethora of other words in the KJB.   The unused root word twist produces  a huge crop of related words.  Apples do not grow on grape vines.  If the KJB God grows on that unused root word twist then anything else growing there is related.  A closer look reveals that this KJB word God does not mean God.  In addition there is feminine (non-gender) form of one of those God words.

Masculine Feminine Word Keys

With a single search,  the Strongbridge Database allows us to see the entire hierarchy of any word at a glance.  This is opposed to thumbing back and forth through numerous pages following the rabbit trail of numbers.  A trip necessary to establish the meaning of any word used in the KJB.

This Strongbridge Database is a very simple tool for using a dictionary of original word meanings.  Instead of wading through a mass of other information that is not necessarily useful nor needed in understanding any given scripture.  Searching 13,000 is not a daunting task.

Future

  • Actual posting of the Strongbridge Database on this site
  • E-books on specific subject available on this site
  • Slide shows posted on this site mostly masculine/feminine words with scriptures reconstituted
  • Classes; learn how to use this new approach to an old subject.
  • I will be available to present to audiences in and outside Santa fe
View of the Song of Peace from Other Side of Strong Bridge

View of the Song of Peace from Other Side of Strong Bridge

SONG NAIL; within is the CYCLE OF WISDOM  (Song 6:9 supposedly written by Peace “Solomon about 1,000 BC in Palestine)

These are the original word meanings

3123 dove  259  united  259 united  517 mother  1249 beloved  3205 to bear   7200  see   4436 queeen  6370 concubine 1984 be clear

This is how the INTERPRETERS rendered it in the KJB

Song 6:9 KJB – My dove,[H3123] my undefiled is [but] one;[H259] she [is] the [only] one[H259] of her mother,[H517] she [is] the choice[H1249] [one] of her that bare[H3205] her. The daughters saw[H7200] her, and blessed her; [yea], the queens[H4436] and the concubines,[H6370] and they praised[H1984] her.

Who/what is the Queen?  Who/what is the mother?  Why is Queen a feminine word; but mother is not?  What is the concubine that is clear? bridge with red heifers crossing opposite directsion The new STRONG BRIDGE DATABASE; enables us to quickly and easily discover the meaning of any word in the James Strong Exhaustive Concordance.  No longer do we have to labor to discover the meaning of any word.  We can see how any word was formed all the way down to its root.  We no longer have to be confused as to what the author meant.  Nor wonder why our current understanding of a word meaning does not seem to match the old texts.  Perhaps it is our current view and understanding that is at faulty.

The above example is just the meaning of the specific words….the SBD gives the entire structure of any given word;  right down to its root.  IN addition shows all the words that grown from any given root word.  This facilitates understanding of what the original authros were conveying.

While 8673 words int he Old Testament were identified by numbers; many of them are duplicates due to transliteration differences due to different times and places.

In addition to these 8673 words there is a substantial number of words that were not given numbers.  These words are contained within the numbered words.  Often the meaning was given; which adds tremendously to our understanding of the original texts.

When we remove all the references to the OT words that are found in the New Testament; there is nothing left of the NEW TESTAMENT. When we explore the scripture with ONLY THE ORIGINAL WORD MEANINGS  (that is without all the added English words)  we see stories quite differently then what has been taught for hundreds of years.

We see stories that are common to man’s understanding of the cosmos; the universe, the creation.  We see glimpses of the first science, the science of the sun, moon, stars and their relationship to the earth.

A very narrow view as traveling was slow; mostly on foot.  Some times on donkeys, horse, camels, etc; but still slow.  There was no far distant other side of the planet.  There was however, the vast upper region that seemed to dance, revolve around the earth itself.

When we distort those stories into people; we lose the entire purpose of the writings of the original authors. It is time to reclaim what the original authors scribed;  must have been important to have been selected as the basis for the book that has sold more copies than any other.  It is estimated that if all the Bible that have been sold were stacked up; it would make a mountain 100 times taller than Mt. Everest. Maybe we should put some time and effort into understanding what the authors of the 66 books actually put on paper.

as seen through the interpreters of the Bible

1. Abidah is the son of Abraham through the mother Ketura  Gen.25:4  1688BC
2. Abida is the son of Abraham through the mother Ketura 1 Chron. 1:33

Which view do we choose to see?  Why would we choose another?

The Strong Bridge Database gives us an easy way to view the original meanings of the words used by the original authors of the 66 books upon which the Bible is built.

Using the Strong Bridge Database we can then compare with the INTERPRETATIONS….of the KJB written in the 1600s ad and the original word meanings.  We can then draw our own conclusions about the intent of the authors of the original 66 books.  66 books selected by the interpreters to sustain the teachings prevalent at the time.

Any other interpretation would either have been

  1. Rejected by the general public;  most of whom could neither read nor write.
  2. Or the general public would have run away from the popularly held beliefs and discovered a different view of the original text.

Words do not lie; however humans concocted words and thenuse them to create whatever pictures they desire for other to see.

 

How Can Boy be Girl?

Language does not lie

People make sounds; then make marks on stone, paper, computers,  etc. to represent those sounds. The sounds become written words that become sentences, paragraphs and stories.  With the intention that everyone reading or hearing those words would have the same understanding of what that sound, that mark means.

If a word means boy and is interpreted by the learned of their day……as meaning girl, child, slave, servant, minister; how can we possibly understand what was written by the original authors?

We read boy; we think male gender….we do not think, girl, child, servant, slave, minister; unless there are some qualifying other marks.  Those marks do not change the meaning of  one word…boy into the meaning of a single word girl.

If we do not understand the UNIQUE LANGUAGE of the authors of the original 66 books.  Then we get fooled by KINGS of RELIGION of today.  The KING RELIGION, by whatever word it calls itself, is based upon  theories, doctrines, laws and precepts; which  KING RELIGION has determined to use to rule and reign over the masses.  For the purpose of mind, heart control.

The KING says it is the word of GOD and must be obeyed because the KING is the representative of GOD.  Who decided that eons ago?  Who heard those words and wrote them on paper?

On the other hand; what did the authors of 66 different writings from 1845BC to 70AD actually put to paper?  Do the stories of KING RELIGION match those original texts?

If we do not understand the UNIQUE LANGUAGE  of the original texts;  then we are like dumb sheep put into a sheepfold by KING RELIGION.   Then we let the KING’S wolf climb over the fence; because that wolf says it is was sent by the KING.

If we explore further the word BOY, we see that train up a boy to hit is a primary premise of KING RELIGION.  We see that the FATHER trains the boy to hit, by hitting.  Do we understand or even know….. that the word BOY is interpreted as girl, child, slave, servant, minister, man, young boy, maid, maiden?  Perhaps it does not mean what we think it means.  Perhaps BOY does not mean what KING RELIGION infers and teaches!

Even so, who do we send off to war…. trained to hit?  Now the girl gets to also join in the hitting having been trained by the KING RELIGION.   Mothers leaving children to go fight the KINGS war. Why is KING WAR still prevalent upon the planet….maybe it is the Major General of  KING RELIGION.   Don’t forget it wrote that wars and rumors of wars would not end?

KING RELIGION determined those words when it developed one of  KING RELIGIONS books called Bible.  When we read scripture and see the words used in the Bible child, maid, maiden, man servant, son, young boy do we think BOY  as a human gender????  How can a maid, maiden be a boy, a son according to English that we read?  How can a boy be man in today’s understanding?

KING RELIGION has built a very tall tower called BABEL; which means the confusion of languages.

KING RELIGION rules and reign out of the tower of confusion.  It is time to dethrone KING RELIGION.  It is time for us to cross the STRONG BRIDGE that was built and then published in 1890.

How many more years are we going to listen to KING RELIGION teach from the TOWER OF CONFUSION?

We can stand on the other side of the STRONG BRIDGE and see clearly what the original authors wrote in those 66 books.  66 books that have been couched in confusion coming from the TOWER OF CONFUSION ruled by KING RELIGION.

Question is why has the KING not given us an easier way to get across the STRONG BRIDGE built in the 1800s? Answer is it would dismantle the very foundation of the TOWER OF CONFUSION. That would allow the masses to draw their own conclusions about what those authors intended to say.

An easy to use and understand database has been developed.  Before it is released to the general public, there needs to be some interest in studying the original  UNIQUE language.  To come to some basis of understanding of how that language functions.  To see how very little the original dictionary actually was. The word and their meanings used by the original authors.

KING RELIGION has built the largest, richest, most powerful corporation on the planet and we the dumb (silent) sheep bow down to it.  Letting our wool be cut off so the king can sell it.  Probably to finance the wars.

Language does not lie, words do not lie in and of themselves.  It is the distortions, the confusion of meanings that create lies.  Twisting and distorting word meanings results in religious myths and other fairy tales.

Oh be patient and let religion die out?   At what cost?  What cost to all the species on the planet?  War does not just destroy people, families, lives.  It affects, infects and destroys all types of species; far beyond the end of whatever particular war is ended.

The planet itself suffers under the tight fisted rule of  KING RELIGION.

When will we stop paying homage to KING RELIGION….homage based upon fear.  Intentional fear to control the minds, wills, and hearts of the masses.
