1 Name of God

1 Name of God
 
Even in monotheism, it is difficult to fix a single name for the Supreme Deity. First there is a quest to express the non manfest or unmanfest  (q.v.) dimensions with words such as:
 
Void
Emptiness
Hidden
Invisible
Absolute
Supreme
Boundless 
Ineffable
Nameless
Germ of Life
 
 Then there is a quest to express dimensions in the visible world.  
 
`-One universal way of doing this is to use vowels to represent the unmanifest, spiritual/metaphysical world and to use consonants to represent the manifest, physical world.
 
-A quest to represent universality means that the "unique" name tends to reflect the the Beginning and the End and sometimes Beginning, Middle and End of reality, time and also of letters of alphabets..
 
As a result the variants in the great world religions range from 1 to 3 letters and the seminal or seed (cf. bija) names are surpisingly small..  
   
We fund also that when we move to 2 names of Deity, or 3 names of Deity that the parts of these initial names become the starting points for further names: e.g. IAO becomes a starting point fro I A and O. .
