It appears that there is multidimensional relationship between secret language,
numbers, music and human thought which was known to the Pythagoreans.Still
it seems that removing sounds like the final '''' or '''', in order to simplify the
Greek language has weakened its influence to our neurons and synapses. A few
days ago the distinguished professor (who is founder of the World Congress for
Atlantis) was a guest of the think tank "Palladium" gave a unique lecture,
bringing to light the unique and mystical, in a sense, influence of the Greek
alphabet and the Greek texts to specific brain regions. An excerpt of Stavros
Papamarinopoulos's lecture is shown below. "The potential influence of the
Greek alphabet in the human brain began to be studied by the global scientific
community from the time a language teacher, Eric Havelock (1963), was inspired
enough to study in depth the Platonic texts. Based on Plato he interpreted the
arrival of the theater and the intellectual explosion of so-called ''golden century''
in Athens as a result of the influence of the alphabet in its final form in the brains
of Athenians and other Hellenes. "

Physiologist Joseph Bogan (1975), joined the study and supported that the
Greek alphabet activates slightly more the left side of the brain, than other
alphabets do, and especially this specific centre of the brain, which is
responsilbe of the written language, the tonic of speech and of analytical
thinking, " explained during his presentation Mr
Papamarinopoulos.Papamarinopoulos, mentioned also the great book of
Jacqueline de Romilly 'Why Greece? ", which depicts Artemis in the frieze of the
Parthenon. The author, a historian, tried to answer the above question. Her
response was that the culture of the Greeks was anthropocentric. It is precisely
this reason which led the Greeks to amazing spiritual achievements, because of
their pure love for freedom. The residents of the area which is called Greece had
created a kind of alphabet long before the Phoenicians. Kerckhove (1988) in an
attempt to interpret the influence of the Greek alphabet in the brain raised the
following question in the form of scientific research hypothesis: Did the phonetic
alphabet, which was fully developed by the Greeks, and which today is spoken
in Greece (and the rest of the western world in its Latin and Slavonic derivative
forms), aect the processes of the brain ? Furthermore, the use of vowels led to
the reorganization of the brain's strategy in writing and reading. Why the Greeks
had this underlying need for vowels in reading and writing, which the Semites
had not, still remains a mystery. Source :
