Lilith is claimed to have been a dangerous demon of the night who happens to enjoy sex. Applied Biliteral Etymology would suggest anothe fable, one of many found in religious texts.ย Collier’s painting, ๐˜“๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ, is a corruption of ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต, female for โ€˜nightโ€™ which also derives from the Stone Age biliteral root *L’. The original female ending, t, is corrupted to ‘th’, a letter not found in Ancient Arabian or Akkadian.
The association of our mother Eve, God bless her soul, with the serpent is the result of a misunderstanding of the semantic domain of the biliteral root from which both Eve and Serpent derive. The root is the famous *H’ “water, water basin, cold,” etc. Because water is vital for life our mother Eve and the serpent derive from the same root, i.e. water. The question “why is the serpent involved with Eve?” is answered by the fact that our Stone Age ancestors, God bless their souls, were fascinated by serpents. They have no legs to run on but they are fast and almost always agile out of their hiding places.
But what do demons and jennies have to do with all this? Well, nights in the Stone Age were dangerous times. The tigers and other large cats were larger than the ones we know today, and cobras and other venomous snakes gave deadly bites from which survival was difficult. They were ‘no go’ areas. Mums worried that their young daughters may slip out at night to meet their boyfriends invented mysterious dangerous to scare them off. For many it does not seem to have worked and the punishment, usually a light slap on the wrist, was a small price for a loving kiss.
Actually English ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ is an original Stone Age biliteral root that has several meanings including “far”. So, going far in Europe was a “no go’ place rather than at night. The biliteral *N’ is the origin of night, near, no, none, etc.
The painting was completed in 1892 and it is now exhibited in Southport Atkinson Art Gallery.
And by way, our resident etymologist is author of ๐—ข๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜€, a most unfortunate name as only Sumerian is “Semitic” and the rest, some 70 languages, are mothered by Ancient Arabian, a Stone Age tongue.
Now that the piece is written, we can confess that we thought we do not want the dads and mums to be angry at Beehive Literary Circle so we provided a chopped image.
