Maybe I am off the mark here but it occurs to me that Linguistics deals with the tongue in the mouth, whereas 'alien' writing - if we are to accept to material from contactee/trainees - deals with relationships in 3D space, even 4D 'space' using a time layer as part of the thought transmission process (i.e. multiple strokes stacked in the same location). Humans convert thoughts into 'lingual' symbols, but ET may convert thought more directly into higher geometrical relationships. Would this still be a Liguistics issue? Now I am reminded of Crop Circles and their multidimensional geometrical diagrams. --- stv[ Next Message | Previous Message | This Day's Messages ]
