In terms, is (LH:2), from the Greek: ις (NE:210), meaning: “force, strength”, secret name: "fertile" (πιον) (NE:210), is the life force of the Greek goddess Aphrodite; a rescript of the “Ankh” force of Hathor, of Egyptian mythology, who brought clay humans to "life". Latin equivalent: vis (force).
The following are quotes:
- “The Latins used the V, and so formed vita, vivere, vivax, victus, vicło, vis, vigor, vigeo, and a thousand more; as also the derivatives we have adopted from that language, vivacity, violent, vivid, etc. Vossius [c.1630], able to get no further than the Greek, deduces vita from βιοτη [?]: but βιος (bios), ‘life’; βια (bia), ‘violence’, βιαηοπαι [?], βιοω [?], all come from one primitive, as also Greek ις, the vis of the Latins, ιςχνς, is ιςχνρος, only by suppressing the aspirate.”
