Solari Report Interview

More notes, references and relevant links will be added below.

Solari book review of Codex Oera Linda by Catherine Austin Fitts (Solari Report). 

NEW DELUXE EDITION — There will most likely be a third edition, deluxe hardcover with ribbons, linen back and appendices incl. color images of all manuscript pages (perhaps page filling, 1 page each), in the spring of 2022.

SHIPPING TIME — In the interview, when I say that shipping takes two weeks or more, I ment shipping to USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand (and other destinations outside Europe). Within Europe it is much shorter (non-EU often somewhat longer than a week).

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” was a quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” was from Krishnamurti.

HOF: hoof or palace garden?

Some of the choices I made translating Oera Linda are very different from the ones made by earlier translators. Here is one example, with some explanation.

[143/28] chapter 16a. Canals and Dykes (longer fragment below)

THÉR THJU DÁNTE HETH FON EN HOF

Ottema (1872, 1876, p. 195): die de gedaante heeft van een hoef (i.e. hoof)

Sandbach (1876, p. 195): which has the form of a hoof

Wirth (1933): welche die Gestalt eines Hufes hat (i.e. hoof)

Overwijn (1941, p. 147): as Ottema

Jensma (2006): as Ottema*
[* added note: hier wordt de naam 'Oldehove' (de jongste van de drie terpen waarop Leeuwarden werd gebouwd) verklaard uit 'Oude hoef' (...)]

Lien (2013): som har form av en hov (i.e. hoof)

Menkens (2013): der die Form eines Hufes hat (i.e. hoof)

Ott (2021): which has the appearance of a palace garden


How should we interpret a domain or piece of land with the shape or form of a hoof? If the imprint of a horse's hoof was ment, it could make sense; the triangular shape may represent a building, while the outer shape may be the surrounding domain, fenced by dike, wall or canal. However, nowhere else in Oera Linda is HOF/ HOV- used for hoof. It is used in two distinct contexts: 1) related to the residence of a monarch (court), an ornamental garden or perhaps a farm; 2) from verb (BI-)HOVA (Dutch hoeven - need, have to, behove), mostly noun BIHOF - needs, necessities. All fragments are listed below.

Still, HOF may very well (also, or in the first place) have been the original word for hoof, considering these cognates:

hoof - English ("A hoof [...] is the tip of a toe of an ungulate mammal [...]" - wiki)
hoef - Dutch, Afrikaans
Huf - German
hov - Danish, Swedish, Norse
hófur - Icelandic

1. related to palace, court

cognates: hof, hoeve - Dutch; Hof - German

HOVE - 1,4,6
HOVA - 2,7,8

DÁNTE ~ shape, appearance, likeness, image

Hebe with Jupiter in the shape of
an eagle, by G.A. Diez (c.1820)

DÁNTE: shape, appearance, likeness, image
gedaante - Dutch
getání - Old High German
getaene - Middle High German
dénthe - Old Frisian

Etymologists suggest this word was derived from the verb 'do'. This could be true, but in OL the present root of this verb is DVA, past DÉ-, while varieties with DÁ- do not occur.
