William G. Gray - The Language of the Gods
Esoteric adventurers of all kinds have sought such secret spiritual speech from one century to another. Ever since language began, there have been stories concerning "Magic Words of Power," both sonic and written, which were supposed to link man and God together for some purpose indicated by the Word-Symbol itself. There was a belief that Man could say something which would persuade the God to do something. This developed to a point of arrogance when Man became convinced he could actually compel Divinities to co-operate with his whims. All sorts of ideas abounded, but their fundamental basis was that specially trained humans could indeed make intelligent contact with higher orders of being which lived invisibly and intangibly behind or apart from our ordinary world of matter.
