What happened with Esperanto? Wasn't that supposed to be a universal language?

Testing the rules of a thread leads to extra, unnecessary work for the moderators. Looking for loopholes is fun for some, and an obsession for others.

I am asking you, not the moderators. If you are not ok with them, I am not going to post them in the future.

Is it all right if I discuss Neptune in the Traditional Forum? I'm asking J.A., not the moderators.

''For discussions on Traditional Astrology only. (Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras. In general, it relies on Ptolemaic aspects (sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction) though there may be some exceptions, and always excludes modern planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto,) as well as any asteroids. The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation and more on prediction. Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.)''

God chose writing as the best medium of transmission of information and communication for a reason. Images are low level in cerebral quality and art just takes too long to make. Not to mention that it breeds idolatry.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

If I use Egyptian hieroglyphs is that text or image?

On the note of meme culture - there are loads of memes that aren't English. I know Japanese, Thai and Spanish have a massive amount of memes. But you won't see that in English speaking areas of the internet much, for obvious reasons.

(I read a couple of years ago about a boy who was a "native" Esperanto speaker, brought up by his father speaking it to him...and there are still language nerds who learn it. Don't see the appeal, personally)

Aren't hieroglyphics pictographic, rather than text? Morse code uses punctuation marks and dashes. That might be o.k.

Sometimes they are pictographic, yeah.

But not entirely. Especially for a subset of them which was used like a kind of "alphabet" that when combined would form words/sentences that have no resemblance to the images used.

If you've ever been to or go to Egypt they use that to hawk things to tourists such as papyrus with your name written on them in hieroglyphs.

I don't know as much about cuneiform but I believe it is pretty similar to Egyptian Hieroglyphs in that way.

In both cases it also depends on the time frame you are looking at...the later you get the more they seemed to depart from pure pictographs (eventually departing from hieroglyphs entirely and becoming "coptic")

Edit: Just checked and yes, cuneiform is more or less the same and has phonetic considerations.
