How is Lingua-U better than Lojban or Esperanto?


Someone in a private forum devoted to Chaos Magick asks, “There are already so many auxiliary languages already though, and the more of them there are the less useful they all collectively become. I’ll bite though, what makes this better than Lojban or Esperanto or the others?”

I reply: Lingua-U isn’t in the same category at all as a conlang. It is not a language at all, but a metalanguage. Its 40 letters consist in the subtle energy markers of yang ⚊, yin ⚋, and yung 𝌀. These symbols come from the T’ai Hsüan Ching -Taixuanjing, a 2000-year-old Chinese esoteric divination manual. The letters describe the International Phonetic Alphabet and especially the Sacred Words in the languages of the First Nations and Great Traditions.

As for what it’s useful for, the first application is, a replacement for the Mayan Haab which is a 9-month calendar with 54 weeks, each described by two hexagrams.

There are many other applications as well — a new zodiac, a new tarot, a new interfaith map of divine names, and so on. Arguably the most impactful is a new set of 243 pentagrams which are the grammatical anchors for describing reality from any of 9 different person-perspectives, situated within a philosophy informed by the Integral Theory of Ken Wilber and a theology of holistic spiritual evolution.

The essential codex of the metalanguage has been published on my blog since 2016 and it’s a stable “code base” for the development of any number of applications. From the Chaos Magick perspective, its usefulness as a platform for developing a universalistic meta-map of magickal and esoteric language is completely wide open. It will be very interesting to see how it develops!
