Energy flows through a Vortice from Source.
'Vort’ means also 'word' and associates with Saxon for 'Verm' which means both 'Form' and 'Worm' by which is meant also Serpent and Dragon. Variant phonemics; verm, vorm, vyrm, varm, etc; indicate different tenses or aspects of the intended meaning and developed by exchange of the initial letter to refer to more complicated and culturally specific items; warm farm, born worn, etc.
A Vortex (the extant aspect from a Vortice) may; 'continue indefinitely' (provided sufficient power) / 'expand outward' / 'contract and close’.
Due to the content of a vortex as ‘particles in motion' it is a form of tesseract (a "4th dimension hyper-cube") although it does interact with particles from outside of itself in several ways, drawing them in, repelling them, bonding with them in various ways. The codex of a Vortex is established by the original codice of a Vortice.
A magickal circle (a Circe) is another form and label for this thing, symbolic devices to establish the same goals. Hence use of pentagram as a grid by which to direct energy currents being so popular in magickal rites; the same applies to chanting rhymes and fluctuating harmonic tones. It is all about energy modulation and how that manifests symbolically through matter and event over the course of time.
You can recognise from analysis of these forms that each has for its key components, three sections: the initial letter, the middle phonemic/phonetic, the cumulative. This relates to the grid of 3x3 as established in The Auriglyphica. Here, it is important to be aware of that we knowingly use as -suffice's the difference between;
-ice "original / in accordance of original" (the prior)
-ex "emergent and develops from" (the extant)
We can trace the origins of celtic european and many languages to the eastern light cult though use of phonetic structures and evictions from original meanings of words. Language is itself a vastly complicated vortex of many writhing helix. The structure and historic uses of these terms is such that in many cases we openly (and usually unknowingly) use in our daily speech, spelling variants from one aspect while we would not find the alternate in any dictionary because it has fallen into misuse or never was widely used.
We are discussing language at the elite level of expertise level here. I like that word, ex (as prefix!?) -ise (as suffix); back to front because we know it inside out (and 's' rather than 'c' because we allow room for wriggling rather than containing and therefore conforming.
Vortimer and his father Vortigern talk with Merlin; events and characters who are integral to Welsh History, their stories found in Welsh Mythology; symbolize much of what I have written here and now that you know how to read the symbolism hidden in the stories you will deepen your appreciation for what the Myths are teaching us; and perhaps apply that to your own living myth.
