Edenic Word


Hebrew Word







[KL → HL]


A WHOLESOME diet is a healthy one, and belongs with HALE at the

 H-L words of HEALTH.  One who escapes WHOLE from a car crash has lost no limbs, but may not be a picture of HEALTH.. Dictionaries do not put WHOLLY (completely) together with WHOLE because they don’t know where Middle English holi comes from.  The whole (completed) truth is unimportant to scholars, who will at least try to slip WHOLE in where is makes no sense. Strangely Greek holos, whole, is not cited. Either people were blinded by the silent W, or were reluctant to print the word HOLOCAUST (wholly burnt).  The wholly burnt sacrifice that did not involve a family barbeque and portions given to the priests and the poor was the עלה GHoaLaH (Genesis 22:2). ע-ל Ayin-Lamed/GH-L  is only a secondary guttural-liquid etymon for WHOLE and HOLOCAUST. (For the second element in HOLOCAUST, see CAUTERIZE.) כל   KoaL means the WHOLE, ALL (even a softer S-G – see ALL), the totality. Numbers 23:13 is rendered, “you shall not see the whole of it.” (Harkavy; others “all”).

  כלה   KaLaH means completed, wholly done (Exodus 39:32). Typical of the unique structural paradox of Edenic, the same word can mean completely used up (Gernesis 21:15) or destroyed (Jeremiah 16:4).


כליל   KaLeeYL, completely,  is an adverbial extension like WHOLLY.  In Polish, where extra Z’s are common, zgola means completely, entirely, altogether.   Two forms of “all” in Maya are lah and tulukal.
