Following this insight led me to studying the sound patterns which have been found
to note a sensible dimension of experience. A review of the literature showed a tre-
mendous amount of scholarship behind the work which is now available to read, so
a sense of confidance carried my natural curiosity deeper into the world of words.

Tracing the roots of the American language shows this language to be a complex
weaving of words from many earlier languages. Jacob Grimm, in 1822, showed
that most of these words stem from a prehistoric Indo-European language. Since
the prehistoric Indo-European language has no written record, studies concern-
ing the roots of this language consider setting the sound pattern of the Indo-Euro-
pean root of a modern word to be an intuitive leap into the past. [Dictionaries us-
ually mark these roots with an asterisk: 'petal > IE: *pet = (to) spread out.'] How-
ever, using: *pet, as an instance of this intuitive leap, one may notice that the sense
of: 'spread (out),' is sensed as a natural dimension present within one's perception
of a flower petal, a bicycle pedal, a lily pad, a mud puddle, or a pet being patted.
Also, the ancient Greek word written: "pteron," involves this root as: "pt," to note
the sense of: "feather(ed)," or, of: "wing." [And: "spread," is: "spread."] Here, the
written record [*p-t /d] guided this intuitive leap towards a sensible place to land.

While learning the root letter patterns which have become woven into language, I
noticed that specific letter patterns had become stablized as certain letter groups
a long time ago, that each letter group notes a range of sense within a naturally
perceived definition [ag, ak/ eghz, ex/ pet, pad], and that the words of a language
are actually made up by arranging, and rearranging, a basic set of letter groups.
My study of words shifted to the set of letter groups - one day, I looked up: "ra."
