OR is the Hebrew word for light. Unlike EL (elevator, helium) and LI (light, lift) which derive their original meanings from the lifting of the the tongue employed when saying “EL” , OR derives its Common Language Code (CLC) meaning from other attributes of the sun and light.
The “O” in OR symbolizes roundness – because one makes a rOund mOuth to say “O”. The roundness of the sun is represented by the “O” in OR.
Now, R is the most energetic of the English consonant sounds, (and this is probably true in any language). R or RRRR is like the growl of a large jungle cat. That sound had real meaning for us for millions of years in the jungle. That core meaning did not disappear when we learned to control our tongues and communicate with words. There is eneRgy inherent in almost all English R-words.
The sum of O+R represents “round energy”; the sun and it’s light. If you find the OR sound within an English word it often represents concepts like light, fire and heat. TORCH, ORANGE, ORE, MORNING, HORIZON, AURA and FURNACE ( originally FORNACE in Italian ) are good examples.
You might ask, what does “word” have to do with light? But you have likely heard of the old Biblical phrase, “Spread the light, spread the word.” There is apparently an ancient equivalency between the concepts of light and sound, hence words. Both light and sound would appear to transfer energy ( or travel ) almost instantaneously to a primitive being. That is why English words like LIBRARY, LEXICON and LITERATURE refer to words, and also why there is an OR(AURA) within the word, WORD.
