The ABC Has Been Hijacked
It’s Time to Take it Back into Coherent Words, Sounds, or Signs
Our approach in Wholyland to coherence is from a wholystic point of view. The whole universe is vibration and as humans we literally ARE vibration too. We believe that this divine vibration is in coherence and it forms a holy wholeness.
As a consequence we cannot talk about coherence without considering the spiritual dimension of its meaning.
History of Coherence
Let us start from where the idea of coherence was first used. In Latin etymology the word coherence derives from the root of the verb ‘cohaerere’, which means to tie together.
In the 16th century, coherence was used in physics and biology to describe what remains attached. For the scientists of the time stones were coherent, as a stone doesn’t easily disintegrate.
Centuries later, the idea of coherence began to be used in the context of written, or spoken text. Coherence was then understood as a quality of logic and consistency. A common definition is that coherence gives a written or spoken text unity and purpose.
“Coherence is one of the two qualities that give a written or spoken text unity and purpose. The other is cohesion. Coherence refers to the general sense that a text makes sense through the organisation of its content. In writing, it is provided by a clear and understood structuring of paragraphs and sentences in writing.”(teaching English)
It was only in the nineties that coherence entered the scientific research vocabulary!
What had happened?
In order to describe new findings in stress research as well as in consciousness research a new word, a new terminology was needed.
The idea of coherence in stress research is used to describe the synchronisation of heart and brain waves. Heart rate variability can be measured and is looked at as a sign of adaptability and energy saving. So Coherence describes the presence of health. You can read more in the last blog – Heart Coherence.
ABC of Coherence
There is another even wider definition of Coherence:
Coherence is the ability to form a unified whole.
This is related to new research into human consciousness.
We will now focus on the coherence of the ABC alphabet, of letters, words and signs in relation to human consciousness.
In German there is a beautiful quote, a short part of the poem “Stufen” that means „steps“ by Hermann Hesse: “Jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne.” And deepl.com translates it as follows: ‘every beginning has its magic or has an inherent magic’. This is a very precise and correct translation, but I prefer the translation to be:
“In the core of every beginning magic lives”
It is a nuance…, but:
Can you feel the difference?
I feel there is more coherence in this phrase. There is an invitation to life itself. The presence or absence of coherence can be intuitively known and felt.
Coherence is the ability to form a unified whole. In Wholyland we change the ending of ‘whole’ and exchange the ‘E’ to a “Y”. The Y is a cosmic symbol of amplification and transformation. The healing power of symbols has been researched by the Austrian scientist, Erich Körbler who founded a new healing method in the 1980s called New Homeopathy.

We humans have the ability to recognise and perceive when there is coherence. Possibly this is the mysterious 7th sense so many mystic traditions talk about. This 7th sense gives us the inner knowing what is ‘wholy’ whole and holy and what is not. This is why coherence is often associated with harmony and beauty. When something is in coherence we often perceive it as beautiful.
Another path to discover coherence is through the work of Masuro Emoto, a Japanese researcher and photographer. He played music to water, wrote words on water bottles and talked or prayed to natural lakes and rivers. He froze water drops and photographed the ice crystals. His work shows that the vibration/energy of the words influence the water and the shape of the crystals. Words of love and gratitude shape beautiful coherent crystals. Where as words such as hate and greed makes the water loose its crystallising ability.
I am deeply touched by the beauty of the ice crystals he photographed. Images can be seen in his book Masuro Emoto Die Botschaft des Wassers Koha Verlag
Another astonishing fact is that when a coherent ice crystal melts
it forms into the Chinese sign for water.
Coincidence or Coherence?
When we came together to co-create Wholyland, we came from different countries, languages, education, and different perspectives. We found a great beauty in this diversity and at the same time we recognised, how words are easily misunderstood or mistranslated. We realised we each create our ‘own story’ when we hear a word, which results in completely different meanings.
We started to see how words have been hijacked, and we are unaware of their true meaning. Therefore we have started to create new words and reclaim the original meaning and power of the words.
One method of hijacking is the mirror-method.
Words can be mirrored. You probably played this game as a child: turning words around, inventing new languages.
So give it a try: turn around some basic words, you really like. And listen to the sound or grasp the turnaround meaning.
Here is an example that might surprise you:
LIVE turns into EVIL.
LOVE turns into EVOL
NAME turns into EMAN (sounds like‚ a ‘man’)
In German LEBEN (to live or life) turns into NEBEL which means fog.
Time to question the history books!
Is there something hidden to us in our language?
Where does language come from?
What is its origin?
What do we know about the creation of different sounds and language around the world?
Matriarchy researchers pointed out a longtime ago, that HISTORY is probably HIS story and HER story.
How might ‘history’ be different it it was ‘HERSTORY’?
How might the world be different if we recognised we all tell our own story?
Then history would be ‘MYSTORY’ which is very close to ‘MYSTERY’!
Due to this hijacking and story making we need to be mindful of the meaning we really want to express and the vibration we want to create.
There are people who can speak backwards, so maybe our brains can also grasp the backwards meaning of words simultaneously with the forward meaning.
What consequence does this have on what we may create?
Does it matter if you consciously decide to live forward and not backwards?
Does your attitude towards life influence how you hear words?
Does conscious choice matter?
