Adamic language

The Adamic language is, according to Jewish tradition and some Christians, the language spoken by Adam in the Garden of Eden. It is variously interpreted as either the language used by God to address Adam, or the language invented by Adam with which he named all things, as in the second Genesis creation myth. In the Middle Ages, various Jewish commentators held that Adam spoke Hebrew, a view addressed in various ways by the late medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri. In the early modern period, some authors continued to discuss the possibility of an Adamic language, some continuing to hold to the idea that it was Hebrew, while others such as John Locke were more skeptical. More a variety of Mormon authors have expressed various opinions about the nature of the Adamic language. Traditional Jewish exegesis such as Midrash says that Adam spoke the Hebrew language because the names he gives Eve – Isha and Chava – only make sense in Hebrew. By contrast, Kabbalism assumed an "eternal Torah", not identical to the Torah written in Hebrew.

Thus, Abraham Abulafia in the 13th century assumed that the language spoken in Paradise had been different from Hebrew, rejected the claim then-current among Christian authors, that a child left unexposed to linguistic stimulus would automatically begin to speak in Hebrew. Umberto Eco notes that Genesis is ambiguous on whether the language of Adam was preserved by Adam's descendants until the confusion of tongues, or if it began to evolve even before Babel. Dante Alighieri addresses the topic in his De vulgari eloquentia, he argues. He notes that according to Genesis, the first speech act is due to Eve, addressing the serpent, not to Adam. In his Divine Comedy, Dante changes his view to another that treats the Adamic language as the product of Adam; this had the consequence that it could no longer be regarded as immutable, hence Hebrew could not be regarded as identical with the language of Paradise. Dante concludes. In particular, the chief Hebrew name for God in scholastic tradition, El, must be derived of a different Adamic name for God, which Dante gives as I.

Elizabethan scholar John Dee makes references to an occult or angelic language recorded in his private journals and those of spirit medium Edward Kelley. Dee's journals did not describe the language as "Enochian", instead preferring "Angelical", the "Celestial Speech", the "Language of Angels", the "First Language of God-Christ", the "Holy Language", or "Adamical" because, according to Dee's Angels, it was used by Adam in Paradise to name all things; the language was dubbed Enochian, due to Dee's assertion that the Biblical Patriarch Enoch had been the last human to know the language. Dutch physician and humanist Johannes Goropius Becanus theorized in Origines Antwerpianae that Antwerpian Brabantic, spoken in the region between the Scheldt and Meuse Rivers, was the original language spoken in Paradise. Goropius believed that the most ancient language on Earth would be the simplest language, that the simplest language would contain short words. Since Brabantic has a higher number of short words than do Latin and Hebrew, Goropius reasoned that it was the older language.

His work influenced that of Simon Stevin, who espoused similar ideas in "Uytspraeck van de weerdicheyt der Duytse tael", a chapter in De Beghinselen Der Weeghconst. By the 17th century, the existence and nature of the alleged Adamic language was discussed amongst European Jewish and Christian mystics and primitive linguists. Robert Boyle was skeptical that Hebrew was the language best capable of describing the nature of things, stating: I could never find, that the Hebrew names of animals, mentioned in the beginning of Genesis, argued a clearer insight into their natures, than did the names of the same or some other animals in Greek, or other languages. John Locke expressed similar skepticism in his An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. Joseph Smith, founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, in his revision of the Bible, declared the Adamic language to have been "pure and undefiled"; some Latter Day Saints believe it to be the language of God. Glossolalia, or speaking in tongues, was commonplace in the early years of the movement, it was believed that the incomprehensible language spoken during these incidents was the language of Adam.

However, this belief seems to have never been formally or adopted. Some other early Latter Day Saint leaders, including Brigham Young, Orson Pratt, Elizabeth Ann Whitney, claimed to have received several words in the Adamic language by revelation; some Latter Day Saints believe that the Adamic language is the "pure language" spoken of by Zephaniah and that it will be restored as the universal language of humankind at the end of the world. Apostle Orson Pratt declared that "Ahman", part of the name of the settlement "Adam-ondi-Ahman" in Daviess County, was the name of God in the Adamic language. An 1832 handwritten page from the Joseph Smith Papers, titled "A Sample of the Pure Language", dictated by Smith to "Br. Johnson", asserts that the name of God is Awmen; the Latter Day Saint endowment prayer circle once included use of the words "Pay Lay Ale". These untranslated words are no longer used in temple ordinances and have been replaced by an English version, "O God, hear the word

Bahubal is an upazila of Habiganj District in the Sylhet Division of Bangladesh. Bahubal was a part of the Rajpur kingdoms; the last Raja of Tungachhal, Achak Narayan, was defeated in 1303 during the Conquest of Taraf by Syed Nasiruddin and his 12 lascars. In the 17th century, after Khwaja Usman's departure from Bokainagar Fort, he reached Putijuri in Bahubal. Here, he built a fort at the foot of the Giripal and stationed his brothers and Wali, son, Mumriz in Putia Hill; the area was famous to be the home of fighters and people of physical strength.

Jean Marie Syjuco

Jean Marie Syjuco is a painter, installation artist, performance artist from Manila, Philippines. Through the 1980s and the 1990s, Jean Marie brought attention and institutional support to the maverick art-form of Performance Art in the Philippines. Beginning in the 1970s as an extension of her work as a visual artist, her performance works developed from conceptual pieces of marked brevity rooted in anti-narrative devices, to the thematic spectacles and large-scale collaborations and video documentations for which she is now better known. For over 3 decades, she has balanced her roles as a painter of Abstract and Fantasy genres, sculptor and performance artist. Since she was awarded the Gold Medal for Sculpture in the 1980 AAP Annual Art Competition, her transmedia objects and installations have occupied a unique place in contemporary art for their avant-garde melding of folk and technological elements. Jean Marie Syjuco was a recipient of the 1990 Cultural Center of the Philippines Gawad CCP Para Sa Sining Biswal Award.

She is building the New “Art Lab”, a non-profit developmental art facility, which served as the haven of experimental art in the 1990s

Computed tomography imaging spectrometer

The computed tomography imaging spectrometer is a snapshot imaging spectrometer conceived separately by Takayuki Okamoto and Ichirou Yamaguchi at Riken, by F. Bulygin and G. Vishnakov in Moscow; the concept was subsequently further developed by Michael Descour, at the time a PhD student at the University of Arizona, under the direction of Prof. Eustace Dereniak; the optical layout of a CTIS instrument is shown at right: a field stop is placed at the image plane of an objective lens, after which a lens collimates the light before it passes through a disperser. A re-imaging lens maps the dispersed image of the field stop onto a large-format detector array. Shown here is an example in which the device is imaging the university of Arizona's logo, uses a kinoform grating to disperse the transmitted light, measures a 3 × 3 dispersion pattern on the detector array. After measurement, an algorithm is used to convert the multiplexed two-dimensional data into the three-dimensional datacube. Conceptually, one can consider each of the dispersed images on the detector as a 2D projection of the 3D datacube, in a manner analogous to the way in which X-ray projections measured by medical computed tomography instruments are used to estimate the 3D volume distribution within a patient's body
