We have been presenting words and names that are closely connected to their biblical narrative, showing how beautifully Hebrew manifests the biblical story of Creation and intrinsically supports physical and natural phenomena by mirroring these tightly linked words through its structure. We witnessed this mirror effect through essence (‘adam’, man, ‘adama’, ground, and ‘dam,’ blood); color (‘adom,’ red); emotion (‘dema,’ tears); association (‘E•dom,’ Edom); and by sound (which is demonstrated in today’s word).
The five words we discussed are the key word and name ‘Adam’ (Adam, man), and the four words that are directly related to it: a•da•ma (earth, soil, ground);‘dam,’ (blood); ‘adom’ (red); and ‘dema’ (tears). Some of these words sound almost identical and each includes the letters ‘Dalet’ ‘D,’ and ‘Mem’ ‘M.’ The reflection of earthly realities in the Hebrew tongue is anything but coincidental. Rather, it seemingly portrays a secret metaphysical formula that God has infused into the Hebrew language to mirror his Creation through words that depict basic physical facts to which every human being can attest!
The sound link to the story of Creation and its key word, ‘adam,’ comes by the word ‘d’ma•ma,’ silence. You may find it surprising, but the biblical text calls ‘silence’ a ‘sound.’ There is an internal connection that we don’t fully understand between ‘bleeding’ and ‘silence’ – they both share the exact same root: ‘Dalet,’ Mem,’ Mem.’ Of course, one can explain that total bleeding leads to total cessation of life (and hence, to silence), but this suggestion along others is still not strong enough to be uncontested as the other six words of the Creation link were. Perhaps a deeper understanding of science is required to comprehend the blood-silence connection. Blood, seemingly carries much information of the human condition, and as we all know, it is the most prevalent matter used by medical science as a diagnostic means. It is reasonable to assume that blood still has some undiscovered secrets. Perhaps in the future we’ll better understand the blood-silence link.
There is another word for silence: ‘doo•mi•ya’. Together with ‘d’ma•ma, silence appears seven times in the Old Testament.
Example with ‘d’ma•ma’:
“It stood still, but I could not discern its form; a shape was before my eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying”
Example with ‘doo•mi•ya:
“I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, had no comfort, and my pain was stirred up”
Let’s narrow it down − silence, d’ma•ma, is a cessation of sound and it mysteriously shares the same root with ‘blood’ and ‘bleeding.’ If you think that this is a coincidence, you may be forming a logical conclusion…but if you read tomorrow’s word, you may have to re think this determination.
