Sean writes “TwO pops up in the work of Petter Amundsen. Finding TWO in the Folio dedication, Amundsen turned to the first page.2, which is in the Tempest.”

The W, the double U, is sourced from Sumerian symbol U.U which has the meaning ‘two’. In a slightly different form, it has the meanings ‘to double, to repeat, companion, partner’. U.U is even given on ePSD, although without confirmation of date or number, as ‘secret’. U, taken alone, has the meanings ‘to sink down, to cover, to cloud over, to envelop, overwhelm’. There is no equivalence to V given in Sumerian dictionaries. It seems that W also has the meaning ‘double’ in Japanese and is pronounced ‘daburu’. Sumerian symbol U.U has other phonetic values, one of which is ‘buru’. Possibly a coincidence. There are so many.

Whoever wrote those riddles had intimate knowledge of the earliest Sumerian language, full of humour and riddles. Mr. Amundsen is extremely perceptive and that series of Timeline documentaries highly entertaining, an eye-opener. The four Ts also mentioned in relation to the Shakespeare enigma are discussed in some detail in my book. I also make reference to the Ark of the Covenant and to the Knights Templar in BEFORE BABEL THE CRYSTAL TONGUE in that context. It is tempting to deduce from all of this that these people had some source of knowledge of the symbols and writings of Hermes Trismegistus.

Or were they simply making covert references to the veritable author of the Shakespearian plays? Perhaps, but they were doing it based on Sumerian wordplay.
