Hieroglyphies are Ancient Egyptians, in which many of the symbols are conventionalized, recognizable pictures of the things represented. Cuneiforms are characters formed by the arrangement of small wedge-shaped elements and used in ancient Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian writing.

Hodge Originally Answered: Roman numeral; Latin meaning for 17 - XVII and the following statement about the meaning?
I have never heard about Italians considering the number 17 unlucky, but rearranging the Roman numeral XVII (17) anagrammatically means taking the letters "XVII" and reordering them to make a word, in this case "vixi" (I have lived), the first person singular perfect indicative active of "vivo", I live. I don't know why you would want to change "XVII" to "VIXI" unless you were a fanatical conspiracy theorist follower of Dan Browne's "Da Vinci Code". "Vixi", incidentally, just means "I lived" or "I have lived". Having it mean "my life is over" is pushing translation further than it should be pushed. It's the job of the translator to be true to the original text, not to embroider it and give it meanings its author hadn't intended. Moreover, Latin has other ways of saying "my life is over".
Hodge Originally Answered: Roman numeral; Latin meaning for 17 - XVII and the following statement about the meaning?
Here's a link... which may help you determine... it is intriguing. http://myblogisok.onsugar.com/tag/Religious When you look at the number seventeen... it seems to imply so much more than we first see... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/17_(number) In Italian culture, the number 17—not 13—is considered unlucky. When the number 17 is viewed as the Roman numeral XVII, and then changed anagramtically to VIXI, it reminds Italians of the Latin language phrase which translates to "I have lived", the perfect tense implying "My life is over." Furthermore, if Friday 17 comes in November, that is the unluckiest day of all, because November 2 is memorial day to the deceased in Italy. When that occurs, November is called "the month of the deceased." To what extent do Italians avoid the number 17? The Italian airline carrier, Alitalia, does not have a seat 17. Renault sold its "R17" model in Italy as "R177." And at the Cesana Pariol bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton track in Cesana, Italy, turn 17 is named "Senza Nome."http://italian.about.com/b/2009/04... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The trouble with numbers Until quite recently, 13 was considered a lucky number in Italy—or was thought to be as harmless as other digits. According to Catholic tradition, however, there were 13 people at the table during the Last Supper, and Jesus was crucified on Friday the 13th. Thus, Italy has adopted the popular European belief that 13 invites as much misfortune as the country’s traditionally unlucky number—17. The reasoning behind 17’s stigma is twofold. If you re-arrange the Roman numeral XVII, it spells the Latin word vixi, a phrase often inscribed on tombs and gravestones. It translates as ‘he lived’ and is considered a sure-fire way to tempt death to come to your doorstep. The digits 1 and 7 also evoke fatal imagery—the one represents a hanged man, while the seven recalls the gallows. What tortures, death brings. Love Kar

The first hieroglyphic writing shows up around 3300 BC and seems to have emerged from the preliterate artistic traditions of Egypt. Some Gerzean pottery from about 4000 BC contains symbols resembling hieroglyphic writing. Hieroglyphs are written in rows and columns and can be read from left to right or right to left, depending on the direction the figures depicted are facing. Sumerian cuneiform appears at about the same time in history rising out of ancient Mesopotamia. Cuneiforms were written on clay tablets with a blunt reed called a stylus. Like Egyptian hieroglyphs, cuneiform was written in both rows and columns although cuneiform was only written from left to right. To date, no historical relationship has been discovered between the two writing systems. In other words, hieroglyphs did not evolve from cuneiform and vice versa, nor did they develop from the same source.

I think most people settle into a comfort zone....and once they feel a sense of security ...they stay in that one place doing their few things...like that is their "bubble" so to speak. i am a follower of Christ....i do not get caught up in the things of this "world" . I refuse to stay somewhere because i make good money or because i have family and friends there. Im actually leaving a very good paying job and my immediate family and moving 2400 miles away in just a couple of months. I am taking my elderly mother home to be with her family. I have no job lined up or anything...im just picking up and leaving. I also look forward to exploring the natural beauty of that region and getting to know aunts, uncles , cousins, and friends that i havent seen in about 33 years. i also am looking forward to hopefully finding a few "good" churches to visit...they have a lot of the smaller churches there...which i prefer...although i am of no denomination and i dont attend a church...im a follower of Christ...He is my Church. So i guess , i answered just to let you know that there are still some who dont follow the "beaten path"...... there are still those who plow forward...making our own way.....mine...in the way of Christ.
