Rise: to stand from sleep and begin to move. Most energies in English begin with the earth and flow through people back to the earth again. This energy is the quintessential human one at the root of the language, which is then transferred to the world and brought back from there a new level of human bodily imaging: the world. As with the rising from sleep it is the entering of one’s active state from a state of potential. Through it, English speakers create a world as a mirror of themselves, that reflects back on themselves and transforms them into the world. The rest follows.
