Part A of the introduction to the ground breaking linguistic research of Isaac Mozeson, author of "The Origin of Speeches," known as "Edenics." This presentation explores the theory that human speech originates from a single original language which Isaac Mozeson has dubbed "Edenics." This original language is most closely related to modern Hebrew and is believed to be the origin of most modern human dialects.

SHaLoM. I’m James D. Long. My wife Carol did the technical work behind this presentation.. We are the publishers of The Origin of Speeches at Lightcatcher Books. My own book, The Riddle of the Exodus, documents how the Biblical Exodus is historical.
The Edenics project led by Isaac Mozeson, attempts to verify the veracity of a crucial Genesis episode even further back in the mists of our prehistory. The Tower of Babel is a myth, right? Keep your eyes and ears open. You’re in for a surprise.
How old is this idea that all humans spoke Edenic: most like Biblical Hebrew? Well, Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden were factory-installed with this language program 5,766 years ago. This original Mother Tongue was scrambled into 70 languages that kept on breaking up at a tower in Shinar or Sumer. This site is later known as Babel. This traditionally happened in the year 1996 after the Creation of Man. Do the math. Scientists studying language and genetics have concluded that ALL people do come from one woman’s genes. Just for fun, they call her "Eve." Today’s linguists finally accept the fact that the whole planet spoke one language. They call it Proto-Earth. Here, on the screen is that verse in Hebrew. It’s OK if you can’t read it. Everything in Edenics is put into keyed English letters, but you’ll know how the Hebrew was spelled. In Hebrew it sounds like VaYiHeeY KoL Ha’AReTS SaFaH A[K]HaT, OO’DiVaReeYM A[K]HaDeeYM In the book you’ll learn how to hear words like: "WHOLE," "EARTH" "SPEECH" "WORDS" and "EACH"
Whether you are a rabbi, minister, priest or atheist, a professor of Semitic studies or someone who doesn’t know an Aleph from a Bet, you have much to learn and enjoy about Edenics. This is pre-Jewish, back to Eden. We will learn how we are ALL cousins, how words from ALL languages are cognates, are related.
In Edenics we discover that language was engineered. Sound is Sense. Music is Meaning. Just as Adam and Eve carried the genes for all the later diversity of human population, every Edenic letter has a range of different sounds within that same part of the mouth. An Intelligent Designer made this original language system to be very versatile, able to be widely spun off into all the African, Asian, European and Native American languages. The Aleph can be ANY vowel. The Bet can shift to ANY lip-letter, or bilabial. The Gimel can be heard as ANY throat-letter, or guttural. The Dalet is normally like D, but it can become the other tooth-letter, or dental. The Lamed is like L, but in another language it can slides over to the other tongue-letter, or liquid. Mem and Noon, M and N, are interchangeable nose-letters, or nasals. Zayin, Samekh, Tsadi, and Shin are whistling-letters or fricatives. All human words are made up of these seven letter-sounds, just like every song is from do, re, mi, fa, so, la and ti.
SHoReSH is the Edenic word for root or source. Can you hear SOURCE in SHoRESH? One of the reasons why our scholars missed finding the Edenic roots in all words – besides disrespect for a silly old Bible story, is because words usually disguise their roots with prefixes before them, and suffixes after them. Even when we get IRREGULARITY down to REGULAR, many people wouldn’t think of Edenic RaGeeL meaning REGULAR. So even the "AR: at the end isn’t the sub- root of 2 or usually 3 letters. What happens when faith becomes a routine? Then ReLiGioN becomes too...ReGuLaR. We’ll soon see how letters can shift locations, not just sounds. So RELIGION is from RaGeeL too.
Do you like chemistry? Or botany or physics? The creator of our Edenic language created all these sciences. Consider the formula XY + YZ = XYZ. XY, our first sub-root, is the Phey-Resh in PHeReeY, a fruit or botanical product. YZ, our second sub-root is the Resh- Het in RaYaK[H], a scent or smell. Is there a better chemical formula or poetic haiku to capture that a Phey- Resh-Het, PHeRaK[H] or flower is... 1) a botanical product, and every fruit is a flower first, combined with 2) a scent or smell. And this information is encoded in just THREE letters. Reading the whole slide opens up many related words. You may have to go over the slide show more than once to see how all these words fit.
Most Edenic words have a two-letter sub- root, and a letter before it or afterwards that differentiates it from its built-in synonyms and antonyms. Back in 2005, it was thought that there were only several of these double- root words. But now it appears that there are dozens. Some of these are in the Edenics CD III . Most are a bit complicated, so KeLeV, dog, provides an easy example. If you know cats and dogs, you are aware that dogs are ALL EMOTION. In Edenic that’s 1) KOL/ ALL plus 2) LeV /heart. They will courageously face certain death to protect their master, and their loyalty is legend. The YZ or 2 element here, the Lamed-Bhet- L-B, is most important in wolf words like LOBO, LUPIS and the L-V in WOLVES. The Hebrew wolf word, Ze’V, did not appear among the world’s words words for wolf. The word KeLeV did. This earlier term for canine, KeLeV, was better called Edenic, not "Hebrew." On Noah’s Ark there might have been only one pair of canines. The Adamic canine and his lovely bitch had all the genes for later foxes, hounds, wolves, jackals, and the 1000s of later breeds. …The same story with human and human words, Edenic words.
There is a large chapter devoted to word families in The Origin of Speeches. On the left, there is a Mem-Noon or M-N family of AMOUNTS. Backwords or forwards MN or NM allows you to follow the MONEY , and to link AMOUNT with NUMBER. Edenic MeeYN, from the larger amount, is the ultimate source of words like MINUS and MINI. Edenic is the ultimate source no matter what languages an English word is from. MOON is from Greek mona. MOANaH means "to count" in Edenic. People counted time by checking the sky many moons ago. On the right is a word family built on Shin-Phey-Lamed/ SPL. The two- letter sub-root here is Pey-Lamed, as in NaPHaL to FALL. In you FALL in a test you FAIL. We FALL ASLEEP. We SLIP and SLUMP into SLUMBER. Whether you read the notes as SPL or SLP, or have an added N or M in the way, the message remains the music, the sense is in the sound.
There are only 4 or 5 easy principles to learn in Edenics. All of them are well known by the scholars who know that French and Italian are sisters of Mother Latin. But nobody applied these to a Semitic language like Hebrew. The first principle is letters shifting sounds within their range: lip letters, tooth letters, tongue letters… remember? More at slide #13 Can you hear the lip-letter or bilabial in AhBHaiL, to mourn, shift from V to W, to allow for words like WAIL, and that mourning bird we call, for an unknown reason, an OWL? Can you hear the nose-letter or nasal in ILaN, a shade tree, shift to M, to allow for that shade tree we call an ELM? Can you hear the tongue-letter or liquid in HahR, mountain, shift to L, to allow for the word HILL? Yes, we now use "mountain" and "hill" for different sizes of topographical swellings. Edenics helps you to see similar patterns, and not to be as uncreative as a dictionary or certain teacher types.
