Thanks for this discussion! Example: 318 men of Abram, sum of 7 primes: 'I only just found that 318 is the sum of twelve consecutive primes (7> + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47) AND MUCH MORE
CHH: And someday, when we have programmed computers with Jordan Cards, and Bull Cards, and BH Cards, and the computers, our technos/our logos, the technology gushes forth all kinds of comparisons, where does that leave us? It leaves us as more makers of things by speech that echoes.
Point two: There are rolling (overlapping) structures of polyphony (counterpoint). This was brought home to me while I was listening to Pastor Harlow’s exposition of Romans 5: 1-5, which was a complete and excellent one, while at the same time I observed that Bullinger (JBJ: Buy the Companion Bible) put Romans 5: 1-5 into a structure the center of which was ‘the love of God in Christ (6:8), 9-10 being parallel to 3-5, and flowering out to peace/joy, and the atonement made/received.
Point three: Since psalmodic response is the ultimate theological dynamic, this puts JBJ’s (and ERH’s) layers of social order into a very high regard, as being a psalmodic response to these layers of structures, polyphonically (and synesthetically by them) seen and heard. Thus they can both be correct, JBJ’s parallelism and ERH’s chiasm.
Point four: We must flower out through the above-mentioned technos of the logos, we sons of the Word, to breath-ness, for surely earlier readers of the Breath (all scripture is God’s breath,
Clark translates the familiar passage). Our brethren in
the past did not have periods, capital letters, spaces between
words…cantillation. How did their
out-breathing, in reading, get done? Reversing Augustine to go forward by going
backward, we must learn this glorious art, in order to psalmodically respond to
Creation Speech as New Song, Singing.

PS: The folks atPPS: Blessed are the poor in Spirit, thus, those who know that they are poor in understanding Breath.
who have discovered that just hearing
the Sanskrit words causes a physiological change in the body are onto
something. (Hearers did NOT know the meaning of the words, iirc). So too, ‘tabernacle of the mouth’ should be
put into the patters sought by the computers, for tone is the ultimate
maturity. Sandwiching, I hear both that much of Chinese speech, before
phoneticization by pin-yin, was via pitch, etc. despite the ideographs, and
that Korean is so constructed as to enable ‘anyone’ to do difficult numerical
computations quickly. Maharishi U.
