Remarks on the translation of some German expressions / On the notation of the verse extracts

Remarks on the translation of some German expressions:

  • "Anchor of salvation" is taken from the German "Rettungsanker" and corresponds to "sheet anchor" in a figurative sense (Foreword/4).
  • The German word "Leibesmutter" means "Mother of My (Jesus) Body (of yore)", hence abridged forthwith "(My) Mother of yore" (Foreword/45).
  • "Ur-eternal" is taken from the German word "urewig" and is used in the sense of "primal and eternal" (cf. footnote to 1/31) (1/2).
  • "HERZENS-URGRUNDPOL" is the original German word meaning "Heart's Ur-Groundpole" (1/15).
  • "UR" denotes as a prefix "original, earliest, prime, primeval", "UR-STATE" = "primeval state" (Oxford Eng. Ref. Diet., p.1588, 1995) (1/31).
  • "UR-GRUNDPOL" is the original German word meaning "UR-GROUNDPOLE" or "PRIME GROUNDPOLE" (1/38).
  • Satana as the first-created Spirit is both male and female. In some contexts as e.g. 2/54 "The Lost Son" or 3/7 "The Prince of Darkness", Satana is used as a male spirit. In most other cases such as "My first-created Spirit Satana", or "My Counterpole" etc., the Spirit Satana is used in the female gender (3/7).
  • German: "UR-ZENTRAL-LIEBESFEUER" (7/37).
