The Alphabet That Changed the World: Torah Science and Consciousness

This work was initiated by a prayer for peace that Stan Tenen made at the Kotel in August 1967. Two introductory videos provide a demonstration of the generation of the letters of the rabbinic Hebrew alphabet from hand-gestures. Hebrew letters and their gestures are based on Hillel's "Torah on one foot," the Golden Rule. The book, The Alphabet That Changed the World: How Genesis Preserves a Science of Consciousness in Geometry and Gesture, summarizes the research as it has developed in the ensuing years. (Info at www.meru.org and tatctw.com.)
This work contains a potential response to Tenen's original prayer for peace: The recovery of the functional and operational meaning of the letters of the alphabet leads to the recovery of the deep meaning of Hebrew roots and words, the prophetic tradition,  the protection of Am Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael, Torah and Judaism, and the exercises that demonstrate the science of consciousness underlying Torah tradition.
Recovery of the prophetic tradition in Torah will prompt the recovery of the prophetic tradition as it was also understood and preserved in Christian and Muslim sources, and this can lead to reconciliation and peace.
