- None of my languages are mystical languages, although i assume that "Mother Language" would be, if i ever decided to work on it. Like i mentioned before, i've translated prayers into Rokbeigalmki, but never *used* them when addressing God. Not being a mystically-inclined person, i wouldn't have much use for some kind of mystical theosophic language that i would create, but not believe in. -Stephen (Steg) "what is the proper way that a person should conduct their life? ...R' Shim`on says: by anticipating the consequences of their actions..."
