Taswit (Sonic Exegsis): Concealed Alif of Nun

For Azizam the Sultan of Sonic Beloveds

Ibn Arabi wrote in Kitab Al-Waw:
And if you viewed the Al-Kaun (Existence) from the point of view of Dhat (Discerning Essence) you might have said: Wujudan (Being-ness); and the one that is not cognizant of these two (Waw(s)), as well, is not cognizant of the Partitioner between these two Waw i.e. the Alif—This Waw is not that Waw.

الميم و الواو و النون
من مجموعة رسائل
الشيخ محيى الدين بن عربي
فإذا نظرت الكون من حيث الصورة قلت عدما فإن الصورة هي الهو واذا نظرته من حيث ذاته قلت وجودا ولا تعرف ذلك ما لم تعرف الفاصل بين الواوين وهو الألف فيعرفك أن هذا ليس هذا

Dara: Phonemes of Waw:

Wa + Alif + Wa


Therefore there is an Alif that separates first Wa from second Wa. Alif is therefore a barrier separating entities from each other.

Recall Nun’s Phonemes:

N + Waw + N


Therefore in Nun also there is a concealed Alif!

Sonic experiment was setup to uncover this Alif deep within the Nun:



Chorus of Nun chants (time-stretched), many thousands of them, sounded an emergent Aaa sound of Alif. Hear for yourself!

As Ibn Arabi wrote, there is separation between the two N-sounds of Nun:

Kitab Al-Nun
by Ibn Arabi
“And with regards to the Nun (‘n’ sounding letter) it has Waw (‘w’/’u’ sounding letter) as a veil between her two ‘n’ sounds. (Dara: Remember that Nun, though in Arabic it is but a single letter, as a phone it can be spelt as follows: Nun+Waw+Nun; therefore Ibn Arabi considers the middle partitioning Waw as a separating veil.)

Meaning, as in writing, a half circle appears from this Nun just like the half sphere of the sky and the other half which is unseen i.e. the other Nun.  The cosmos is comprised of an observable half and an unobservable half. And the reason for our inability to observe the other half is our existence upon this earth, since this earth also serves as a veil obstructing the view of other half of the cosmos.
