Git, Get, Bigot Duality Theory

Posted in Languages, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2016 by Drogo

To ‘beget’ seems to have some relationship to the words git, get, and bigot.

– Drogo Empedocles

Git or ‘yit’ was old english for ‘you two’. The phrase ‘you two’ can be interpreted as ‘both of you’, almost like a doppelganger; there are two ‘you’s’, as in fact you are saying ‘you and the second you’. Old country folk kept using the term ‘gyit’, in ways that may have been insulting for any number of reasons (classist, racist, bigoted, etc); so it became known as an insult after generations of use.

Get or ‘acquire and have’. Got is the past tense of get aka ‘had’, so bigot may have meant ‘two have had’ (Bi-Got / Be-Got), almost inferring an inherent hypocrisy in reproduction (yin-yang, duality of male-female). To possess something or someone is similar to get something or someone. ‘Possess’ also has two meanings; to hold control, and to be inside another. Got of course is also related to ‘god’, as in Swiss ‘by-god’. This gets into the ‘i am god’ / ‘son of god’ historical-linguistic issue, which is long enough for another essay.

A git or a bigot is a person that makes another self, perhaps in the future, that is destined to disagree with them, or attempt to replace them at some point, for any reason. This meaning of words has complex psychological concepts involved in the cultural historic definition, therefore dictionaries have probably not been adequate to record or teach how we think of these words. There is a natural parallel with this duality concept of ‘two selves’ and Janus, or the god with 2 faces. Threshold guardians are mysterious keepers of secrets of life, of light and dark, of two perspectives. The fear is always that they will be Jeckyl and Hyde, the evil making the good suffer.

To me these meanings were intuitive, and I remember feeling their greater implications as a child; when watching He-man and seeing his doppelganger Fakor, or in the Never Ending Story with the mirror of Atreu, or how confusing and mysterious creating, possessing, and being a creation of another was. Getting a thing, or begetting a child, makes another you, that is not yourself.

It is worth noting that these languages usually have their own alphabet and cultural interpretations of symbols; in addition to word and name differences. In this guide we only use Common symbols for simplification of quick universal translation. There are some hybrid words between human and faerie languages, because cultures have cross-over evolution blending.
