WRITING SYSTEMS and HANDWRITING: Penmanship
Historical records appear immediately after the appearance of writing, in all socially
connected societies, since the time of Adam and Eve. Oral history derives from area
geographical population "islands", devoid of advanced civilization, both in ancient
and modern times. When oral history is later recorded, the "oral history" is no longer
"oral history", but established tradition handed down from generation to generation.
All "preliterate societies" are actually branches, (oral societies are then "post literate"
societies), the linguistic degenerated sub sets of older civilizations from which they
came or out migrated, due to wars and other contentions (from Egypt, Mesopotamia,
China, the Hebrew Biblical ancestry, etc.). Modern genealogical research findings
reveal a similar pattern wherein approximately one-third of the world's secluded
populations are illiterate.
The nature and history of human language, by definition, requires the subject
to be limited to records produced by humans; i.e., the preserved genealogies
and associated documents, rather than modern speculative theories. The basic
thrust of all primary ancient centers of civilization has recognition of religious
authority and ethical lessons, associated with administrative secular documents.
History is properly concerned with causality, or why a certain outcome happened
and how it is linked to earlier events. History teaches that the world's writing systems
have not been independent of immediate, ongoing, factual group conflicts that create
generational illiteracy, unconnected to any linguistic epochs. The kept, handed down
genealogical pedigrees, fragmented and incomplete, show language corruption that
began in the 2944 - 1994 B.C. time period, altered through group regional population
movements and the subsequent family group isolation, in dynastic genealogies.
