I find the universe a very odd thing indeed, or rather the mind. My two characters Isuthis and Mezla have names I thought I had made up, yet it seems that they do actually have meaning.
A while after I came up with the name Isuthis, I noticed how similar to ‘Anubis’ it was. Which is pretty fitting considering that Anubis is the Egyptian God of Death, and Isuthis has a pretty similar job. Maybe his name subconsciously came from that?
And today I randomly searched ‘Mezla’ in google to make sure that no one else has a character with the same name, and it turns out that Mezla is actually a word…
“Mezla: The flow of energy, consciousness, and matter through its various phases of expression in the Tree of Life, from subtle unity of the absolute to the dense realm of matter.”
And another article here:
Another fitting name. Her element is air/electricity and she creates new life from the souls which Isuthis frees (to put it short). Though, to be honest that description could fit well for Karrad too as he deals with the mind and dreams/inspiration.
Maybe I’ll update this journal once I’ve looked up the meanings behind my other deity character’s names. That’s saying if I can even find anything.
Either way I find it rather amusing that this has happened and makes me wonder how interconnected everything really is. Or maybe language has incredibly subtle ways of communicating visions and meanings through very few words, even without people knowing what the word actually means.
Ack! It’s a difficult thing to explain, though I do remember seeing an experiment on one of the documentary channels which spoke of something very similar to what I’m trying to say.
I think I’ve entered the long dark tea time of the soul…
