Alphabet T  ©
The evil god Seth and a company of conspirators murdered Assur. They hacked his body into pieces and scattered his severed parts. Assur's scattered parts have found their way into our alphabet.
The majuscule (capital) letter T is a picture of the two front teeth of Assur.
To be more accurate, the majuscule letter T "symbolically represents" the two front teeth of Assur. The majuscule letter T is a picture of the outline of Assur's two front teeth and the part between them.
The teeth of Assur represent truth. Before Buddha, Confucius, Moses, and Jesus were born, there were enlightened individuals going back into pre-scriptural times. Assur and Isis were both powerful enlightened beings whose works and teachings illuminated the ancient world. That is why they were deified and revered as gods. Assur was the first enlightened being of the historical era following the melt down of the Ice Age. Assur's teachings were the moral, philosophical, economic, and political foundation of the ancient empire. Assur's teachings were the original religion of "civilized" humankind.
The body of Assur's teachings was the body of Assur that Seth and the evil conspirators murdered, dissevered, and scattered. The body of Assur's teachings was the body of Assur that Isis resurrected. Assur's word is truth. The majuscule letter T symbolizes all that is related to the talk, truth,and teachings of Assur.
The Pagan religion placed high value on the truth. In the classical Judgment Scene, Assur's throne rests upon a plinth called maat, i.e. truth. That maat truth plinth is the foundation of Assur's throne and kingdom. Assur's religion, government, teachings, and judgment are founded on maat truth. In the final judgment, the hearts of deceased persons were weighed on the scales of justice in balance against the maat truth feather. The balance beam of the scales of justice are suspended from a maat truth feather protruding from the upright member of the scales. (See Alphabet F page on this web site.) The maat plinth under Assur is surely the source of our word matt.
The minuscule letter t is a picture of a cobra snake poised to strike.
The minuscule letter t is an earth symbol. It is a picture of a cobra snake poised to strike. The letter s is also a picture of a cobra. The letter s is a double-wisdom symbol. The minuscule letter t also has a certain sense of two-ness built into it. In the letter t version of the cobra, the fangs are the main "points" of significance. The crossbar of the minuscule t represents the two fangs of the cobra. In usage, the minuscule letter t is very often paired as the fangs of the cobra are paired. The sound of letter t is made by pressing the tongue against the teeth.
The fangs of the cobra are tiny and pointed. The letter t functions as a "pointed" determinative in words like point and tip. The letter t functions as a "tiny" determinative in the Spanish suffix -ito, and in the French suffix -ette.
The letter t functions as a "tooth" determinative in words like bit, bite and tooth. The name Isis is composed of Hiss Hiss, two hisses of the sacred asp. Isis' alternate name Asset is composed of Hiss Tooth, the hiss and the tooth of the asp. The fang of the Sacred Asp is the original "wisdom tooth."
Our word thought is derived from the name of Thoth. The word thought is tooth said backwards. The fang of the Sacred Asp was the original "wisdom tooth." Thoth was the god of wisdom and learning. The name Thoth is composed of Th+th, tooth + tooth. The letter H derives its sound from the sigh of the wind. (See Alphabet H page on this web site.) The th sound is a compound of the tooth of the asp and the sigh of the wind. The th sound is another version of the hiss of the asp. The name of Isis is composed of Hiss Hiss, two hisses of the Sacred Asp. The name of Thoth is composed of Hith Hith, two hisses of the Sacred Asp with a soft th tooth+wind sound instead of a hard S
On the Tower of Babel page of this website is a discussion concerning the name of the tet figure. The discussion is quoted in part here for easy reference.
"Thoth's name lends meaning to a number of constructed Thothian words and names. The name of the Tet tower is one of them. Tet is another derivative of Thoth's various names. The name of the Tet tower is the source of our common word tit. The Tet tower stuck up from the landscape like a tit. The Tet is the tot- syllable in the word tot-al. It is the tit- in tit-le. It is the tit- in tit-ans and the Teut- in Teut-ons. The Tet may be the Tut in Tut Ankh Amen."
"In the book Osiris and the Egyptian Resurrection (p.48), E.A. Wallis Budge used the name Tet to name the icon that represented Assur's backbone. Dr. Budge's source for the name Tet is unknown. Someone later determined that Tet is incorrect and that it should be called djed. The Tet is now widely known as the "djed column." Some people who are uncertain about its "correct" name call it the "tet(djed)" column.

The name of Thoth, the name of the Tet tower, and our word tit are all related to the fangs of the Sacred Asp in some way or other. Those words all contain two teeth. Thoth was the god of wisdom and learning. The name Thoth contains the "wisdom teeth" of the asp. The name Tet contains the teeth of the asp. Thoth was the god of astronomy. The Tet Tower was an astronomical observatory.
Scribes of the Thoth school created words and names based on the names of the gods. The name djed as proposed for the name of the Tet Tower does not fit into the system of names that scribes of the Thoth school used for giving names to things in this language. The name djed may have been used in some language other than this one. Or, the name djed may be the root source of the word judge in this language. But "djed column" does not fit as the name of the Truth Tooth Tower in this language.
The Tet tower stuck up from the landscape like a giant tit. Call it the Tit Tower; it was shaped like a tit. The word tit contains the teeth of the asp because of its shape.
Language is culture. Every culture is embodied in its language. When a language is lost, that culture is gone. This web site is dedicated to developing a universal language in service to a WorldCulture civilization. The Pagan culture of the primal parents, Assur and Isis, is the cultural foundation upon which all human civilization of this planet is built. Ancient Pagan culture was the nearest thing to a WorldCulture this world has ever known. Upon the existing foundation of that ancient culture, a WorldCulture future civilization with a universal language can be built. That ancient lost culture can be resurrected through its languages.
Resurrect Isis. Her message is universal language. Her family is WorldCulture civilization.
