In the esoteric language of ancient scripture the words stone, water and wine all mean knowledge at various levels of understanding.
Stone being the lowest level, that is the law we all must adhere to in the material world, as per Moses and modern positive law, because we are too daft just to cooperate with each other. LVT is the law 'written on stone' in esoteric language. Its all over Leviticus.
Water being a transitional understanding, and wine being the ultimate knowledge which I guess few attain.
In Costa's today 2 women were making strange gestures to each other, I thought about me. So I asked them. They laughed because they were practising sign language.
I asked them to show me some signs and by coincidence they showed me the signs for water and wine, which are almost identical.
Once again confirmation bias compelled me to ask:
"so what's the sign for stone then?"
Because if similar, I would have been staggered that all the words meaning knowledge esoterically, are the same in sign language. A non literal connection with sign language.
This is particularly important because many signs are not scientifically sourced. You just 'know' what they mean, more easily than you can be told. For example 'Dog' is signed by holding out your hands like 2 dog paws begging. Sign language is a level above 'the law written on stone'. A kind of art from that transcends logic a bit
Out of luck today. Stone is drawing a circle on the back of your palm, nothing like the signs for water and wine.
