Wondering whether anyone can offer any insight into the following theories: A. The confusion of the people's language after the building of the Tower of Babel can be viewed as the end of the single path to God era and the beginning of a new age auguring many paths to the same enlightenment. Since the builders' original intent was to reach God it stands to reason that that's what became confused - the builders being the archetype for humanity. For this purpose it's useful to think of religion more or less as a specialized mode of language or communion. In this vein the tower may be seen as the crucible of all theological substance. B. Prior to the undertaking (Babel) there may have existed (may still exist) a powerful creative language with a vibratory force very much akin to that spoken by God during the creation of the heavens and the earth, and that forever hence man has been reduced to the utilization of second rate symbols. Jesus and others may have known and used this primordial language. Just thinking... Love to hear your thoughts O.
