You write “I have no way to know you’re wrong”. But you do have a way to be pretty sure that I could be right! That’s what my book does. That’s why it’s presented in the form of a bilingual book with symbols/phonetics/meaning on one side and the full translation on the other. It speaks for itself, or at least it should! There is an entire text, The Instructions of Shuruppak, laid out for all to see, with full explanation. This is one of the oldest literary texts in existence. My method works. You write “Ancient language can’t really be translated”; I have to disagree but perhaps we are not talking about the same thing at all.
Yes, the symbols were distorted, turned 45 degrees and given additional meanings. This is common knowledge and can be found on Wikipedia. I posit in my book that this was a deliberate action, designed to confuse. The name of it was KA-BAL, the turned word.
Logogram? Why not ‘symbol’? I’m particularly sensitive to confusion of any kind. It’s the only way to get to that unique pyramid hidden in the centre of the jungle – cut away the undergrowth. I try to keep my own language simple, extremely accessible to anyone who takes an interest in this subject. If I can’t make myself and my method understood to anyone who takes the time to thoroughly read the book, then I will have failed in my task.
Cladking, have you published a re-translation of the Pyramid texts? Sorry to ask but I have stayed away from looking too hard at Egyptian hieroglyphs, for fear of becoming sidetracked. There is so much work to be done.
