Xur/bel/gon – The Human Speech Formula


PREFACE

I have been working for a long time on semantics and historic values of words, concerning Serbian and its relationship to the other Indo-European languages. In the year 2004 I “announced” the SUR (HOR)-BEL-GON + UM speech formula as a self-generating wellspring of the Indo-European tongues. Two years later, in January 2006, I found out that the Russian linguist and archeologist Nicholas Marr (Nikolaй Яkovlevič Marr; 1865 – 1934) had been offering a similar “recipe” in the beginning of the last century and it sounded SAL, BER, ЙON, ROŠ (SAL-BER-ROSH-YON). Of course, “serious” scientist had immediately rejected Marr’s “mono genetic” theory and subjected it to mockery and utter contempt in later times.
Unfortunately, I found just a few pages in Russian of this “irredeemable” Marr’s work, whereof I was unable to see how he arrived at the above-mentioned speech-principle. However, I was awe-struck seeing that someone had come to the similar conclusion much earlier than I did. I think it would have been impossible for two researchers, separated in time and space, to come to almost the same conclusion by chance – quite independently – especially in the field of lingua science.
More to the point, it could be argued that Marr’s long-disciplined observation and precise scientific research and my basic paleo-syllables which I used as my “primary tool” brought us to the same conclusion. If I’m correct, and I have all the reason to believe that I am, it would be a crucial proof that the knowledge arrived at through intuitive research is as valid and important as the most sophisticated scientific methodology.
Certainly, I am well aware that any theory, which diverges from the established “truth” in the field of linguistic science, will be immediately (a priori) renounced as the worst kind of heresy. Withal, the work of the great linguist as Marr probably was, had been ferociously rejected by the scientific circles and labeled as a “mad theory” (Russ. bezumnaя teoriя).
I was catapulted into the wellspring of human speech mystery firstly by the force of an exuberant imagination and pure intuition followed by logical reasoning afterwards. In fact, I thought that the first articulated word must be in a close relation with the “originator” of Earth-life – the sun! Even today, night causes anxiety and fear and we can only imagine how it was looked upon in ancient and prehistoric times. Undoubtedly, the prehistoric man must have awaited the next appearance of the sun (morning, sunrise, dawn) as a new salvation from a fearsome “night confinement”. If we accept the evolutionary theory of human speech development as an undeniable fact, we must also assume that human speech must have commenced from a certain point in time and space. It means, some energizing, articulated word had to be the first one, as a self-generating wellspring of other morphemes and compound words. I think, that “primeval” syllable had been first “enriched” by affixation and afterwards subtraction, metathesis and agglutination stepped on the scene.
Today, three years later after I first “heralded” the above-mentioned (SUR (HOR)-BEL-GON + UM speech formula, my “speaking well-generator” is shortened to the mere XUR-BEL-GON speech-delivering “progenitor”. In short, a new and revised Xur-Bel-Gon is a speech formula based on the three ancient sun divinities:
1) Sur (Surya /In Hinduism chief solar deity/, Zaria /Slavic goddess of beauty, Zorя; dawn/, Svarga /Hindu and Slavic Heaven; Slavic sun god Svarog; Sargon – the king of Akkad; hence the name of the sun; Serbian sunce, German Sohne);
2) Hor(u)s, Ra (Egyption/ Slavic sun deity) and
3) the ancient sun god Bel known in Asia, North of Africa as well as in Europe. I hope that my respected reader has spotted that Horus and Surya sprang from the same ur-syllable – Xur! The sound x in Xur might have been taken as a kind of a voiceless palatal-velar fricative. Sur and Hor "rivalry" might be the reason of the so called Satem-Centum division among IE languages; Gon is an independent agent(!); i.e. the force that makes the world components (material and spiritual) to be locomotive.
Following the above way of thinking, I “rationally” concluded that the first spoken word must ultimately be the name of one of the most ancient sun-deities. My mother language is Serbian and I decided to ex­amine its internal logic and semantic values of different “deified” syllables, starting with the sun gods Sur (Sanskrit syR surya, Russ. Zarя, Sirius), Bel (Bal, Bel Amon, Belbel, Belial) and Hors (Horus, Osiris, Orion, Chris/t). Actually I anticipated that the “forgotten” meaning of the noun Serb (Serbli) was zora bela (white dawn; belo – white, zora – dawn), a compound word of two sun deities (Sur, Bel; Sur-Bel basis). Bel represents the sun god (Akkadian bêlu, Greek Βελος, Latin Belus; the name of Bel had been applied to various gods in Babylonian religion and his feminine form was Belit ‘Lady, Mistress’). I also realized that the names of other Slavic people, like:
• Bulgars (Bel-Hor)
• Croates (Horgon)
• Russians (Hor-Gon)
• Ukrainians (Hor-Gon)
• Byelorussians (Bel-Hor-Gon)
• Poles (Bel-Gon)
• Slovenians (Sur-Bel-Gon), are closely related to the ancient sun deities.
The same case is with the people’s names in the western hemisphere:
• Germans (Hor-Gon basis)
• (H)Romans (Hor-Gon basis)
• Belgians (Bel-Gon)
• Franks (Bel-Hor-Gon; warriors)
• Greeks (Hor-Gon)
Norses (Gon-Hor basis)
