The mirror polishing scene from the film V for Vendetta (2005), wherein the phrase "Vi Veri Veniserum Vivus Vici" is seen on the mirror, translated in the film in English as: "By the power [vi] of truth [veri], I, while living [vivus], have conquered [vici] the universe [veniversum]", and attributed to Faust (c.1520). The Latin word: vivus, from the "vis of Venus" etymology, translates as "alive" or "living".

In terms, alive (TR:443) (LH:68) (TL:511|#61), from a-, meaning: "state, condition, manner, or process", + -lif, meaning "body with vis" (e.g. vis vitalis), as opposed to "dead", is a scientifically-defunct "anthropism" (Sherrington, 1938), in need of "abandonment" (1966, Crick), which has been "re-defined" (Pearson, 1892) as "faculty of reaction" (Lubicz, 1949) or "existive" (Thims, 2015), presently.



The English term alive has a very-complex etymology. The first part of the etymology of word alive, derives from the Greek Bi (βι) (NE:12), pronounced "vi" (in English), meaning "12 months" or "moon at full power". Phonetically, to go through a translation example, listen, on Google Translation, to the sound of the word "library" in Greek, namely: βιβλιοθήκη, which is pronounced "viv-leo-thiky"[1]; which is summarized as follows:

Greek English
Word βιβλιοθήκη library
Sound vivliothíki ˈlīˌbrerē

When the prefix a-, meaning: "state, condition, manner, or process", is added to this, we nearly arrive at the word "a-liv-lio", in rough translation.

Secondly, we have the Greek: Is (ις) (NE:210), meaning: “force, strength”. This has the secret name: "fertile" (πιον) (NE:210). This has the coded meaning that a women ovulates and becomes fertile once per month or 12 times [Bi (βι) (NE:12)] per year. This Greek: ις (NE:210), in the Roman period, became the Latin "vis" or "force of Venus", aka vis of Venus. This can be seen in the Latin word "vivus", in the Faust mirror above, meaning "living" or "alive", in English.

Thirdly, if we prefix a-, meaning: "state, condition, manner, or process", to the Greek βιος (bios) (NE:282), pronounced "vios", and or the Greek βιβλος (Bible) (NE:314), pronounced "vivlios", aka the "book of life" as Abrahamic religions believe, we get a word that sounds like a-vios or a-vivlios. These two words, in a combined meaning sense, when taken in the phonetically in the βιβλιοθήκη (vivliothíki) to library translation sound, also yield the word "alive", in rough etymological translation.

This Greek-to-Latin terminology change, can also be seen in the Europe transition, in the German -lif, meaning: "body" (leib), which, when combined with the "vis" force (e.g. vis vitalis), we arrive at the word alive meaning "a body [leib] with vis" or a-live, which is akin to the word "vita". The full etymology, involves a transition from Egyptian to Greek to Latin to German to English.

Vivus | Living

As full etymological digression is a bit involved, the adjacent screen shot from the 2005 film V for Vendetta, will help.[2] The mirror shows the phrases:

  • Vi Veri Veniserum Vivus Vici [Latin][3]
  • By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe [English]

This derives from the Faust legend (c.1520). The following is an example of Low German to English translation:

“The Temple of V.V.V.V.V. It's out beyond the maze, on the edge of the ledge that looks to Freiburg. The Vs are Faust's motto. They stand for: Vi Veri Vniversum Vivus Vici or ‘By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe’.”
— Robert Nye (1981), Faust: Being a History of Johann Faust (Pg. 64)[4]

The basic Google translate of each term is:

  • Vi = by virtue, force, strength, with force, power (film translate)
  • Veri = true, truth, of truth, the truth
  • Veniversum [universum] = all, the universe, whole
  • Vivus = living, alive
  • Vici = won, conquered

The key terms here, with respect to the etymology of the word alive, are vi (force, strength, power), aka Bi (βι) (NE:12) in Greek, and vivus (living, alive). These both derive from the "vis of Venus" (c.200BC), which in turn derives from the "Is of Aphrodite" (800BC), which is an isopsephy cipher, which in turn derives from the "Ankh of Hathor" (2500BC). Here, we note the following:

  • Bi (βι) (NE:12) = Vi (Latin) = virtue, force, strength, power
  • Bia (βια) (NE:13) = violence
  • Is (Ις) (NE:210) = Vis (Latin) = force, strength = fertile (πιον) (secret name)

This would seem to mean that the Latin "Vi" is code for the Greek "Bi", whose NE value is "12", which would seem to be code for the idea that each year the moon is at full strength, force, or power "twelve" times. This seems to corroborate with the fact that the NE value for "bia" (or via in Latin) is "13" which is code for the irregular phenomena of 13 full moons, occurring once ever four years.

Hence, the Greek-to-Latin cipher of Bi to Vi seems to be code for the fact that a woman ovulates 12 times per year, hence becoming full strength, force, or power, in respect to human fertilization.

This logic, in turn, wrapped into the "vis" of Venus mythos, yields the following decoded etymology:

  • A – [L] Vi - Vus (vis) → Alive

This, give or take digression on how, e.g. of how the letter "L" may have fused into the word, according to the German -lif, meaning "body" (leib), yeilding merged etymological change, gives us the basic origin of the word alive.

Terminology | Reform

See main: Life terminology reform

In 2007 to 2012, the defunct theory of life debate occurred, after which life terminology reforms began to be actuated, wherein historically-tested thermodynamically-neutral upgrade terms were used in place of all defunct terms; the following being on example, wherein “alive” was replaced with any existing thing with “high faculty of reaction”:

“I propose the following definition, which is applied to everything, including minerals: life is the faculty of reaction.’ Everything in the universe tends toward inertia, or absence of reaction. The proof of this inertia, which thermodynamics seeks in ‘absolute zero,’ has never been given, nor will it ever be, because absolute inertia can only be attained through the cessation of the formed matter or ‘thing’. This would be the moment the thing ceased to exist. Every thing ‘existing’ is capable of reaction, insofar as it has ‘weight’, that is, fixed or specific energy. The vital phenomenon is the faculty of reacting, and to manifest itself this reaction requires a resistance of the same nature as the action.”
Rene Lubicz (1949), The Temple of Man

In 2012, Libb Thims, on the Goethe timeline employed the terms “reaction start”, reaction existence, and “reaction end”, for the defunct terms: birth, life, and death.

In 2013, Thims, amid drafting the “smartest person alive” article, renamed it to “smartest person alive | existive”, so to use non-anthropomorphic, physico-chemically neutral language, intelligence language.

On 30 Jun 2015, Thims started the “existive” article, explaining how the term existive is a portmanteau of “react-ive exist-ence”.[5]


The following are related quotes:

“If these terms: ‘unit-mass of living matter’, ‘resultant of organic forces’, ‘continuity of organic substance’, etc., that biologists have adopted from physics, are used figuratively, then we ought to find them re-defined.”
Karl Pearson (1892), Grammar of Science (pgs. 328-31)[6]
“It should be observed that nothing has been said of ‘life’ in describing the system. The system may or may not comprise ‘living’ organisms, the argument remains the same. This suggests that a term, such as life, so vague that it defies definition, is perhaps not likely to play an important part in any exact argument; we may, indeed, find it wholly unnecessary. It may, in time, in the literature of exact science, meet with the fate of the word cause: a term of rare and at best incidental occurrence in records of exact investigations.”
Alfred Lotka (1925), “Regarding Definitions” [7]
“There is no thing endowed with ‘life’.”
Nikola Tesla (1915), “How Cosmic Forces Shape Our Destines”
“Both the scientific and the everyday elbow are one and the same system of electrical charges. It is of no use asking physics and chemistry whether it is ‘alive’. They do not understand the word. When physics and chemistry have entered on their description of the perceptible, life disappears from the scene, and consequently death. Both are anthropisms.”
Charles Sherrington (1938), Man on His Nature (pgs. 236, 260)
“Let us abandon the word ‘alive’.”
Francis Crick (1966), Of Molecules and Men (pg. 5) [8]
“The smartest person ‘alive’, would know they are NOT alive.”
Libb Thims (2014), “Mental note of three SPA purviews”, Jun 23 [9]
“Here is the thing - organism are by definition ‘living’ things and whether viruses are alive or not is a matter of debate. What do you mean? How is this possible that we do not know if something is alive? Quite simple. Our definition of being alive is not derived from first principles. What is the conclusion from all that? That we do not really know what it means to be ‘alive’. Maybe viruses cause us so much problems because they prove that the thing that we are looking for does not exist in the first place. We assumed that the state of ‘alive’ is a given, that’s our axiom. What if it was wrong all this time? Being alive is a lie. How could we miss that? Nothing is alive. Being alive does not exist. Wait just a moment! - the crowd shouts. This is all BS. You are presenting no evidence, this is just pure speculation, totally unscientific! The angry mob would be right. This is not a scientific theory. Here is the thing - neither is the current theory of ‘alive’. No magical moment happened in evolution at which the spark of god came upon us. I exist. I feel. If I’m unlucky, one day I will stop. We are the same as everything else, just further up the scale.”
