If we operated on what we think it would be mere "perception". Science can't work using modern "logic" because "logic" is rooted not in the wiring of the brain or mathematical relationships but to a very large extent in semantics and the understanding of specific words in individuals. But remember ancient language was rooted mathematics and it was metaphysical. The PT are just silly little rituals but they are expressed in the combined work and science of all humans for 40,000 years. Their "perceptions" weren't tied to words and beliefs but to 40,000 years of science and scientific knowledge. The science was "primitive" but it had made enormous progress and all Ancient Language speakers had a reasonably full understanding of this progress. Even the dimmest witted understood the outline of human progress and knew 40,000 years of human history.
It should also be noted that I made no assumptions here. Well... ...more accurately I have ALWAYS assumed all people make sense all the time in terms of their premises. I speak the way I do so my premises are readily visible and can be challenged, cutting to the chase as it were. I hoped when I started on the PT that I could find clues buried in word selection that applied to how the pyramids were built. I certainly never expected to find that the work wasn't about magic and incantation and was actually a different type of language. No one could be more surprised than I.
Since the meaning of the language is not yet translated it would seem to follow that the job has to start at the very beginning. No, not Champollion, but at Masperro. All of the words derived from the book of the dead must be dropped and sentence structure revisited. Since the formatting of Ancient Language is just as distinct as the formatting of the ancient brain then it follows it can never be translated into modern language. It can merely be interpreted.
This is going to take a while for modern scholars to solve this and it will best be done in conjunction with the redevelopment of ancient science. This can proceed relatively quickly since we know where they got (pretty much) and we merely need to figure out how they got there. Without science the language has no meaning which is why they never discovered a means to preserve that meaning. They worked on this for many centuries and G1 is simply their best attempt. They didn't think we'd discover its secret until we invented a new type of science so G1 is mostly a time capsule that will reintroduce us to our past.
If you're expecting me to single handedly do like Champollion and "translate" Ancient Language which still hasn't been translated and can't be translated then there's not much further I can say. If you want to know how I solved it and the highlights along the way then you're among the first and I can certainly accommodate you. I can even tell you what a few of the glyphs really mean and exactly how they originated. Really, the best thing right now would simply be a retranslation in terms of author intent and this is something ANYONE who reads glyphs and understands the intent could do.
