ANOTHER BOOK OF WOODS
Just a minor author at the end of the world wanting too be cutting wood endlessly.
Ogham the beth-luis-nin of the Irish or Aipgitir that is alphabet.
Birch rowan ash
Denary base ten value
1.Beithe B birch the first in the forrest faded trunk and fair haired=1
2.Luis L rowan Delight of eye is rowan=2

22.Oir Oi Ó spindle tree=400
23.Uilleann Ui,Ú honey suckle=500
24.Ifin,Iphin,fín Í ,ÍO ,ÍA gooseberry=600
25.Emancoll Á ,Áe ,ÓE ,OE witchhazel=700
25 Letters total giving a denary high value Áe =700 Emancoll the last twenty fifth letter in ogham.
One word for Being in Irish is A with a Fada long vowel Á is emancoll or Áe .
Being = Á = 700
A is the sixteenth letter in ogham A=70
A is the word for Be in Irish.
All things in preportion
Now if we want too say 800 with Ogham letters using the traditional denary counting we say
Á=700 plus E=100 and write it in ogham that way. so 800 is ÁE Á = 700 plus the separate E = 100 so 800=ÁE
Like wise for the rest of the hundereds up to 1 thousand so from 700 too 1000 it would look like this
Now in the traditional denary counting say in arabic we have Gha as 1000
And to write 2 thousand B or Ba was written before it Ba =2 multiplied by Gha 1000 = 2000 or 2x1000
And it was written like this but right too left as it would appear in arabic GhB = 2000 or 2x1000
Now Irish and ogham is for the mosty part traditionaly writen left too right and bottom to top.
So if One thousand in ogham is Éa Ebad = 300 plus Áe emancoll = 700
So 1000 = ÁÉ pronounced Áh aye ,Ée Oh
Now to write 2000 in ogham with traditonal denary counting its 2 = L Luis multiplied by ÁÉ = 1000
And it would be spelt left too right so in ogham 2000 = LÁÉ
And when your number has more digits at the end they are written after so say a number like 2060 would be
LÁÉ plus 60 = R so 2060 = LÁÉR if its hundreds say 2160 start with the hundreds and next the tens and last the digits so 2160 = LÁÉER write it as its said 2 thousand 1 hundred and 60
LÁÉ=2000, E=100 , R=60 = 2160
So to recap ÁÉ is one thousand to write multiples of 1 thousand write the multiples before ÁÉ and write your hundereds tens and digits after.Here is an example of 1000 too 10,000
1,000 = ÁÉ
Q is a Cu sound C is a K sound in Irish
11,000 would be Q=10 and B=1 QBÁÉ
Note Q in Ogham is a double letter Cu so QB is pronounced Coob or Coov
so the rest of the thousands in teens would look like this
Ect on up you just need too remember that multiples of 1,000 are written before 1,000 which is ÁÉ or emancoll Ebad and multiples of hundreds after plus tens and last digits
To continue for a bit just too make sure 100,000 would be E=100 x ÁÉ=1000 or 100,000 = EÁÉ
Any non-hieroglyphic alphabet can be used in this way as long as you have its traditional order.
The letters for one thousand will depend on the amount of characters in the alphabet.
For example there is debate about the amount of letters in the ogham some say its only
20 letters from B too I.
Others say its only 22 letters from B too Ó
Others say its the total 25 letters
Truth be told its all three for the same rules apply but with slight modifications giving different answers
Example too write 1000 just using 20 letters Its I=200 multiplied by 5=N giving 1000 and written like this
NI =1000 followed by the 100s 10s and 1s same rules but now calculating the denary number word for 1000 using only twenty letters will give 1000=NI=205
So for 20 letters
All things are in preportion now the same rule again if we are useing only 22 letters B too Ó
Or Beithe=1 too Óir=400
But this time 1000 is Óir =400 plus Óir = 400 =800 plus I=200 = 1000 =ÓÓI
written like so left too right try to always go highest too lowest with most alphabets
Now lets take the ogham denary number words for 1,000 in 20 letters 22 letters and 25 letters to compare the 3 and there diferences.
20 letters ,1000 = NI
22 letters ,1000=ÓÓI
25 letters ,1000=ÁÉ
1.First the 20 letters ogham denary word for 1000 NI calculating the number word in denary and ordinal
NI = 205 denary
NI= 25 ordinal
2.Next the 22 letter ogham denary word for 1000 ÓÓI calculating the number word in denary and ordinal
ÓÓI = 68 ordinal
3. And last the 25 letter ogham denary word for 1000 ÁÉ calculating the number word in denary and ordinal.
See there is a differences but a preportional one (Bind no thing)
Im going too push the boundaries on tradition and say too you that doing it in 23 letters and 24 will work just as well as the traditional amounts of letters in ogham of 20,22 and 25 should be easy enough to figure on your own plus ordinal number words can be calculated in similar fashion but in this case
100 in ordinal ogham with 20 letters would be NI 5 x 20 =100 and 1000 ordinal would be QNI ect
With 25 letters 100 ordinal number word is SÁ or S=4 x Á=25 = 100
And 1000 in ordinal ogham number word of 25 letter alphabet is QSÁ 10x100
Its too messy if you use 22 letters or any number that wont divide evenly into 100
Now to give you an idea of what is needed to know about numbers is that ordinal values have high denary values as well some of you may know this but for those that dont here is the values of 1 too 100
Its sometimes good to see them all written out too know what your dealing with.
So 100 is also 100 billion
And vice versa so an archangel such as michael is 101 in hebrew but most likely his number could just as easily be 200 billion.
Insane yes but true all things in preportion.
And as well as that ogham can also be put in 9 chambers like Aiq bekar you dont need 27 letters like some people think its just pythagorean reduction it can be done with any alphabet.
1.B=1 Q=10 E=100
2.L=2 M=20 I=200
3.F=3 G=30 É=300
4.S=4 Ng=40 Ó=400
5.N=5 Sr=50 Ú=500
6.H=6 R=60 Í=600
7.D=7 A=70 Á=700
And yes you can do magic squares in Ogham just as easily as any other alphabet again universal science of letters.
But that will be another post.
