I have a somewhat difficult time believing you even spent the four minutes between our posts thinking about it.

How would language be different if every word had a single meaning? Can you apply this answer to the Pyramid Texts?

Even if it were possible to understand the language without understanding the origin of the glyphs and sounds how would this be accomplished without coming to understand some of them? How would you know you had succeeded if the only thing you have to translate is a book of "incantation"? Shouldn't you be able to show at least one tangible bit of knowledge derived from any understanding. Does it really matter if horus scoops heat from the flames under the creation gods or he gather such flames in a bucket?!!!? This is the kind of nonsense generated by 200 years of trying to parse the imparsible. Can we scoop heat and thereby go to heaven? Does it really matter where such nonsense arose or exactly what they mightta meant?

It simply doesn't make any sense that Egyptologists translate and retranslate this stuff over and over without ever considering why they are doing it or where it is leading. In this case it's far more important to merely consider if they are really progressing toward something. The only possible signposts are coming to understand things like the ankh yet they are no closer today than they were 200 years ago. What was the "nbht-sceptre", what was it used for, how did it originate, and what did it mean in a sentence? I can answer all of these questions and then show it was used in a way that was coherent, logical, and in agreement with the laws of nature. One could say I understand the nbht-sceptre and know that it is a specific kind of ba-sceptre and even who operated it.

I'm hardly suggesting the James Allen even quits his work long enough to talk about any of this. I am suggesting that it is way past time to start using science and empirical data to work on the language and discover how the pyramid was built. Perhaps someone could start by trying to understand why the language breaks Zipf's Law and what this might mean to how many definitions each word had.

You haven't really thought about it and neither has James Allen. Everyone's too busy parsing the words to see the war is being lost or to gather the evidence which would discover the reality.
