They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but did that same euphemism exist in antiquity?
Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics is a system of writing that utilized symbols to denote specific meanings. Many contemporary Egyptologists contend that the grouping of hieroglyphics symbols offers a phonetic pronunciation of the words utilized. They imply that these words only refer to the concept described, sun, horse, God, etc. Did ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic texts and scripts have more than just a phonetic meaning? Is there an intrinsic meaning implied by the symbols they used that offer an insight into their cosmology?
