I was reading about ancient Runes aswell as their mystical properties and I wanted to give my opinion on this topic.
for those who don't know, Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets, If you’ve watched anime or played video games then you probably seen
it before, The name "Rune" itself, taken to mean "secret, something hidden". The origins of Runes may have originated from the Phoenician alphabet
however researchers are still uncertain. The earliest runic inscriptions found on artifacts were used as magical charms , curses & omens. This form of
practice would later be known as 'Runic magic' or 'Runic division'.
Basically how it works (in my opinion) is that these runes are nothing more than subliminal messages used to program the subconscious mind.
For example: lets say a man engraves runic inscriptions on a sword with a simple message like "best warrior ever".
(so in theory) the purpose of the runes would be to program the subconscious mind of who ever wields that sword in believing he's "best warrior ever".
Not only that but the opponent fighting the person with that sword will subconsciously pick up that message & actually believe he is fighting against
the "best warrior ever" , which will ultimately lead him in losing the fight or getting killed. As silly as that may sound this was how psychological
warfare worked back then , Even if the person doesn't understand the runic writing , our subconscious mind already knows its meaning.
If you're familiar with NLP or Mentalism you would know how easy it is to control or influence someone's thoughts through the power of
NLP is not only used to influence people's choices but also it can also control their physical actions as well.
Another "Magical" aspect that these runic writings may have is the power of words and it's influence on our physical reality ,
Which is the notion that by not only saying words but writing them down can have a physiological affect on living & perhaps non living things.
There are even some Indo-Europeans tribes involved in these type of magical practices like the Scythians , that would tattoo themselves with runic
writing on their bodies.
So did these runic writings had any mystical properties? , I honestly don't know but I can Imagine Vikings with runes tattooed all over them must've
looked pretty badass.

Recently, i noted that all of Thoth's runes can be converted into a digital form similar to all digital numbers being constructed from a digital 8.
Are you referring to the Thoth tablets? , I've actually done some research on those tablets before and discovered that the Thoth tablet was written in
a Hebrew Dialect used around the 1st century Bc. The Writing on the Thoth Tablet didn't represent any letters in the Phoenician alphabet but rather to
Words can be converted to multiple old languages on cornwall.esy.es... Simply type in what you want, select a old language and view what those English
words looked like in old text.
That's cool I always wanted to learn how to write in Gothic , thanks for sharing.
