Ancient Chinese Character Examination: Forbidden

Ancient Chinese character for 'forbidden'
This is interesting, the primitive character for the word 'forbidden', is very, very similar to the word covet. Again with the two trees. But this time, instead of there being a symbol of a woman underneath, there's an abbreviated character of the word for 'God'.

Just as I mentioned yesterday about how the God of the Bible forbid Adam and Eve to partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, this is the same thing, and the character for forbidden continues in that same vein.


I think this is incredible stuff, personally, and it's great to hear that some of you readers out there think so too. If you know any others, or if you want to tip me in on something you personally find interesting, lemme know!
