Archaeological and Historical Observations
of the Origins of the Runes
It has been suggested by some Runic scholars that the runes are adevelopment of Phoenician, Latin, Greek or the Etruscan alphabets.Others have suggested that the Atlantians created them. Most ofthese theories are based on observing the similarities betweenlettering systems used by neighbouring people, often found in caves,and their movement between places and the fact that to date no oneis sure where they originated, archeologically and historicallyspeaking. No doubt a significant level of lettering interchangeoccurred over the several thousand years of our recorded history.For a long time the orthodox view was that runes were only aphonetic alphabet and a numeric system. Few now deny that ourancestors saw them as special and magical. A recent theory is thatone group designed the runes in extreme antiquity. This theory ties inwith those who think it was a long-gone advanced civilization that firstused them. This theory comes from observing the regulargeometrical nature of all runic writings, and is the one closest to thetruth in my mind.
The Flower of LifeIn my view the truth of their origin is that the Runes are geometricalsymbol generated by the natural frequencies that materialised themultiverse. Geometry is at the foundation of all things, and it is myview that Spirit (Life) takes form through the vehicle geometries.From this perspective the runes are older than time and permeate allexistence. They were not designed or developed by humans; theywere observed by the wise as natural phenomena. Runes are anintrinsic part of the language of light and the language of nature.They are part of us and we of them. Looking at a rune is like lookingat page of the Book of Life.
