Serbian Himalaya (Homolje) Mountains

The rough meaning of Gon-Bel-Gon is "roundness, round heap, clod, cloud, ample, oval object, egg-like" etc. Gon-Bel is a part of my HSF Xur-Bel-Gon "well-spring" or "generator" of speech. Bel-Gon form is intrinsically connected to the sun and to the sun-divinity – Bel (Zeus Belos, Jupiter Belus; Celtic divinity Bel, Semitic divinity Bel, Belanus etc.). There is an enormous number of words that are derived from Gon-Bel-Gon basis, where the syllable Gon represents any kind of movement (phisical as well as mental). Maybe the ancient people realized that the whole life BEGAN thanks to the sun's activity; so we could say that "in the beginning was the sun beam" instead of biblical "word". Probably, it is the reason why we have words "begin" – Serb. početak, počinjati, pogoniti, polaziti /begin/, Lat. pello, pellare, pulsus, Gr. βαινω; βάσις /any basis is a "beginning"/; επικινέω /to be moved/, πολυ-κίνητος, αποκινέω /remove/; Ger. Beginn, Anfang /beginning/.

Following the above logic of the "beginning" we can easily understand the further "branching" of words and their meanings: pello => expell, pulso => expulsio => explosion; Serb. polaziti/pogoniti (start to go; Beginn), poleteti (fly; Ger. Fliegen; iz-leteti from iz-(po)leteti, aus-fliegen), ispaliti (shoot); pogoniti (drive) => puknuti (explode).

Nevertheless, let us go back to the "basic" meaning of Gon-Bel-Gon – roundness, heap! While comparing English heap (Ger. Haufe), inhabit and heaven with the Slavic words zemlja (earth), gomila (heap; also known in its metathesized form "mogila"), nebo (heaven, sky) and selo (village) we can hardly understand the exact relation among all these word, especially if we try to solve this problem using the standard linguistic methods. Although the Slavic word zemlja (earth) and English heaven have different but similar "roots" (g^hðem- and *ke-men-; Germanic *hibin-, *himin-), there is a small chance that anyone would say that "zemlja" and "heaven" originated from the same "source". Everybody can see that English "heap" has a close meaning to "accumulation", but there are rare people who are able to understand that this words are the closest cognates. Is there any possibility to prove that "accumulation" is closely related to "hamlet", "home" and Serbian "selo" (village)? Who would ever believe you if you said that English "home" is related to Slavic "dom" or that Latin humus (ground, earth, soil; cf. Serb. hum /mound/, humka /tomb/) is a counterpart word for Slavic "gomila" (heap; mogila) and "zemlja" (earth).

Latin globus (globe, ball) is the cognate of the Serbian word lopta (ball), but if we compare Serb. lopta and Lat. globus with words as Serb. oblina (roundness; from h/oblina) or M. Lat. ovalis (egg-like; Lat. volubilitas, probably from h/uolubilita; cf. Serb. uobliti /make round/) we shall clearly see that all this words are derived from the Gon-Bel-Gon basis.
