English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word









Latin oriens (direction of the rising sun) is from Latin oriri (to arise) and the Indo-European “root” er- 1 (to move, set in motion).

Similarly,  ערר [O]aRaiR is to "wield" (a sword in IISamuel23:18) or be roused. Ayin-Resh (the infinitive) means "to rouse oneself" or "to awake." The common denominator is to stir (move or rise from sleep).   העיר       Ha[E]eYR is to stir up;         ער [A]yR is "awake" (Songs5:2).

Ayin-Vav-Resh in paradoxical, inhuman Edenic can allow AWARE, and its opposite meaning, blind, can mean both bareness and covering – see below.


The official cognates of ORIENT are ABORT (see below), ARE, ART, EARNEST, ORIGIN and ORIGINAL. GREGORY and GREGORIAN are from Greek egeirein (to awaken) - from the guttural, ORIENTAL way of pronouncing GHahR (awake).

The breakdown of ABORTION is  ab, Latin from (see ABRUPT)  plus the unlikely er“root” above.   To ABORTdoess not mean “from arise.”  Also to be considered are Bet-Resh Edenic etymons of pregnancy, which night be preceded by an A- prefix of negation: [A]hBNaR is to cause to be pregnant; [E]eBooR is a fetus, and [A]hBHaR is to yield fruit  or to fructify (Job 21:10).

Being awake and aware involves being in touch with one's senses. Therefore [O]WR (skin – see   CHROME), the most extensive organ of touch and sensation, is related. The antonym spelled exactly the same as the words for "arising," "arousal" and "skin" is עור [E]eVaiR (blind – Leviticus 19:14). In Eastern Caucasion עור  Ayin-Vav-Resh appears to undergo an M231, as burku means blind (S-B, S-G). 

Pronouncing the Vav of our term as a W rather than a vowel,  [A]VoaR or [A]WoaR (awake) leads us to AWARE – see   TARIFF.  ALERT might also have an Ayin-Resh component.  It may be from Italian all erta (on the watch), (A)hL (on) + [E]ROOT (vigilance).

In  Deuteronomy 32:11 an eagle “guards” his nest. This  יעיר   Y[A]eeYR word   is from the עור  Ayin-Vav-Resh root (AWR) and  is all about the “watching out for” in the Indo-European “root” of AWARE below. GHeeYR is a watcher or GUARD (Daniel4:10).  O“’r is a guard in Hungarian. To guide one's ORIENTATION to terms of awareness that arose from Ain-Vav-Resh, the infinitive that  offers [O]WR, AVR or AWR.  Clearly AWARE is available from th sound and sense of Ayin-Vav-Resh. Presented here are the cognates of "aware" at Indo-European “root” wer (to perceive, watch out for): ARCTURUS (Greek ouros is a guard), AWARENESS, BEWARE, EPHOR, FIELDFARE, GUARD, PANORAMA, REARWARD, REVERE, REWARD, STEWARD, WARD, WARDEN, WARDER, WARDROBE, WARE and WARY.

YARE (ready, active), from Anglo-Saxon gearo, should be related. The R → L change brings up the verb GHaLayH (to go up, ascend) – see   ALLEY.  ORIENTALS in China use the term li when saying "to rise up." Hereeis awake in Finnish; araisto awake in Proto-Polynesian; in Hawaain this shifts to ala.  Be aware, careful is vare in Bulgarian, vara in Chechen.  Eastern Caucasian

Ever since  Adam and Eve’s awareness of nakedness after the forbidden fruit, awareness/arousal and bare skin shared an element of EROS. Like awareness and skin (see CORIUM), EROS can from Ayin-Resh (see EROS).
