In prefixes, th- (LH:9) is the "sound" and letter symbol of the English alphabet translation of the Greek alphabet letter theta (NE:318), symbol "Θ" (Th-) or , whose secret name is Helios (NE:318), the Greek sun god, whose isopsephy numbers (318, 318) are coded into the formula for the circumference C and diameter D of a circle, in the sense of equating to the monad (1), aka the Pythagorean model of god, as follows:
Theta, in word, symbol, and math, however, is based on the Egyptian model of the origination of the cosmos, wherein the sun god Ra, shown curled backwards adjacent, floating in the primordial waters of the Nun, generates the wisdom goddess Maat, out of his head (compare: Athene and Minerva), who in turn lifts the sun disc (or sun) into the sky, and from this basis, generates all the rest, via the Ennead, which means "nine", just as θ is the 9th letter of the Greek alphabet, by no coincidence.
The th- prefix is found in words such as: theos (god) → θεός, thermo (heat) → θερμο, or theorize (formulate) → θεωρητικολογώ. The θ letter is a Greek-coded secret name cypher for the fact that Θ-based (theta-based) words, are themed on things, i.e. all of creation, born out of the mind of the sun god, or "syn-thesized" by the power of the sun, as we say in modern physico-chemical terms, as shown adjacent.
Th-based terms tend to be grouped into one of the following categories, in etymological meaning:
- Sun god-themed (or god-based), e.g. theos or theology
- Mind-related, e.g. thought or think
- Heat-related, e.g. thermometer or thermodynamics
Historically, in the mid 19th century, in the wake of the William Whewell vs Samuel Coleridge BAAS debate (1833), wherein the religion-encompassing term "natural philosopher" was beginning to loose sway; the question became what someone who works in the ‘real sciences’, as Coleridge had phrased it, should be called [?], bubbled up, after which the term "scientist" (Whewell, 1834) was coined, a severing between the three etymologically-related terms: mind, sun god, and heat, began to arise, which grows in divide to this day.
In c.110AD, Philo of Byblos said that Theta Θ symbol is the sun deity, encircled by a ringed serpent, with its head turned inward, and that the dot is the eye of god. In Egyptian cosmology, the sun was considered as one eye, and the moon was considered as another eye, the god associated with each depending on version of myth. The following, below right, depicts what seems the eye of Ra, shown as a hieroglyph inside the encircled body; as compared to the "eye" of the sun, below left, conceptualized as looking down on humans from above; with a possible theta symbol prototype shown in the middle:
In the above image, from the Nesi-Amsu Papyrus (305BC), written by a scribe in the temple of Amen-Ra at Thebes, we the sun god Ra, with his head "turned backwards", with an "eye" inside of his enclosed region, showing one or two snake symbols inside of the enclosed region. We also see to snake (Apep) + sun god (Ra) depictions adjacent.
In 280, Porphyry said the Theta Θ symbol represents the “world soul” or "soul" of the world. This would correspond to the bennu bird (aka phoenix), which was said to be the "ba" or soul of Ra, who his shown twisted backwards into a circle, above. Below left, we see Ra, with the sun disc on his head, ridding on his solar boat with the bennu bird. Below right, is a semi-modern rendition of the conception of the bennu bird, as described to Herodotus (435BC) who was told that it was called the phoenix:
Porphyry also connects theta with the number “9” being symbolic the nine-god Ennead family of Heliopolis. This translates to the effect that Ra, in the form of Atum-Ra, is what created the Ennead. Hence, the letter "theta", symbol "Θ", based on the curled shape of Ra, above, is the 9th letter of the Greek alphabet.
In 555, John Lydus, postulated that theta is the symbol of the cosmos, wherein the airy fiery circle represents the world, and the snake, representing the agathos daimon (or good demon) spans the middle. This collaborates with the ancient myth of the good sun god Ra (or Horus) doing battle with the evil snake Apep each night fall, aka the Ouroboros myth, as the Greeks called it. The snake is typically depicted either in the body of the sun or encircling it. Below left we see the snake around the sun, on to of Ra's head. Above right, we see the snake inside a bulb of light model of Ra, born out of a lotus.
Theta | 9 | Sun | Ennead
π | 318
The value of π, moreover, can be found by a circle with a circumference of 1,000 units and a diameter of 318.318, as follows:
The number 1000, according to the Egyptians, as later understood by Pythagoras, was considered the monad or divine unity of god. Hence, th-based words, in many cases, tend to have a solar geometry coded into their meaning, which has been passed along to us, in latent culture form.
