SOK-RAT ~ seek reason

Posted Image 
SOCRATES => SOK-RAT = ZOEK-RAAD / -REDE= seek reason/ rationality/ counsel/ advice

al-Kindi, a well-known Arabic philosopher, introduced and tried to reconcile Socrates and Hellenistic philosophy to an Islamic audience, referring to him by the name 'Suqrat'. (wiki/Socrates)

=> just like I said: Soeck Raedt!
So his name actually meant philosophy.

With the words Sok- red for Socrates , bear in mind the closeness of the two word Sac-red , and Sec-ret... These may fall in line with Higgins theory ...

Creative idea, ID, but sacred seems to be derived from sacer (holy),
and secret from se-cernere (to separate oneself).

Higgins inspired me too.

"Almost all the latter part of my life has been spent
unlearning the nonsense I learned in my youth"
~ Godfrey Higgins (1772-1833)
