The NPR “History of Information” interview with James-Gleick was great,

 However, he did not go back far enough! We get our letter “A” and the Sanskrit’s first letter from the heliographic device called the Sun Disk and its light dampering folding wings.

The Hebrew and Greek alphabets have the same order as the northern Semite alphabet of the Hittites, the Greek and Hebrew alphabets, also mirror the early Ugaritic Cuneiform symbol because they were all alphanumeric/ heliographic codes. These codes allowed the most used letters to have the simplest symbol that corresponds to 1, 5, 10, 2, 4, 6, 9, 50 and 100. Here is the kicker; the message of these flashes of light from those ancient mirrors would be totaled, so that when the message was received a line cipher was given with the numeric total of the message or line by line, therefore, if the totals did not match up? The mismatch allowed the error to be discovered allowing message to be re-sent or corrected. There are at least two places where this principle is still used, first in computer code writing. And the Jews, who still use those number values of their alphabet to total their Holy Scriptures. This is so that, the WORD of GOD would be constant without variations in its transcriptions. That is why when the Qumran documents from almost 2000 years ago  are compared today’s  those texts match the modern Tanakh versions almost perfectly, a fact that amazes the Scholarly World.
