‘Atrocities’ is a word I used in a recent post but, I don’t know the sense of it. Runically, it breaks down but, the sense is so broad it is non-specific. ‘A position of the substantive ‘oak’ -which is transformative and regulated’. This is ‘a significant, descriptive sense’, so much so it requires a more specific sense -of tense. First, I disposed of words which distance me from what I’m saying. This is necessary, since there’s no purpose in referring to a substantive if I have nothing to say, or if I am not going to own my words. I owned my words by changing the sense of tense; I made it ‘First person and personal ‘I’, then I made the form into speaking language by using contractions like ‘don’t’ and strong, present-tense verbs like ‘want’. Since I used that word with great feeling, I really want to know what I said.
I’m telling the process of finding the sense because this is a step in the research process. This process is not a thing other people do. We all do this when we think about what we are saying and what we intend by it. We keep track of our ‘its’ because the ‘it’ belongs to us and we know what we mean by it. To know the sense of a word, we often have to research it. When we do not use a word correctly, we often don’t say what we intend and then we get used by our words, rather than our words get used by us .
According to my readings, the sense-roots of our words and ideas were taken from all over the world. This was during a time when Earth was not divided up and ‘owned’ by various empires -although the empires were trying. The sense-roots represent fundamental principles of Nature as observed by various peoples. These principles represent a ‘birthing of transformative id-ea in our head=pr-in-cip’ (roughly declined). There are no judgements, opinions, rule-books, or other mental tailoring, done at this early stage.
I looked up some words in the “Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary”: ‘atrocity’, ‘atrocities’, ‘atrocious’, and found a lot of tailoring. Under ‘definitions’, 1) “extremely brutal or cruel; outrageously wicked; 2) evil; very bad; in bad taste; abominable , as an “atrocious dress” 3) very grievous, violent as “atrocious symptoms” Under synonyms: heinous, wicked, cruel, monstrous, villainous, flagrant. Under “etymologies” are examples of how other cultures have understood the roots origins ‘atrocious’ [L. atrox fierce, cruel; from ater black] ‘atrocity’ [L. atrocitas from , atrocis, cruel; ater black] Notice that as they go back to their earliest word for the idea, it is an energy black. This is the Earth energy ‘black’.
I checked a related word ‘atrophy’ [L. atrephia a wasting away. a- a privative & trephein to nourish] Somewhere there must be a substantive with atr. Lo and Behold, we have a chemical, a plant, a species of bug and a goddess. I will not copy the dictionary but, will give a few examples: atropine, Deadly Nightshade. aka Atropa Belladonna which is named after Atropos who is one of the Three Fates, the third who cut the thread of Life. The sense of her name: “is not to be turned“. The sense element atr is ‘substantive which is transformative and regulated’ as is indicated in paragraph one.
When we take the sense back to its sense origin there is a fundamental principle involved: Atropa and atropine may be frightening, cruel (has shiny black berries), poisonous, asf. However, this is an amazing medicine and, It is the only one I know of which regulates our autonomic nervous system.
When I maintain that our history is preserved within our language, This is no exaggeration. 04-18-2017JOH
