Indeed as you quoted: “real value of the language gives you a concept of the culture’s thinking.”
The visual/phonetic format of communication is indeed well suited to convey a cultural feeling because it takes us to visual elements that related to everyday life of those who wrote the teaching down and we can be transported to their times in feeling and simplicity as well as philosophy. All those elements are helpful in visualizing a perspective beyond the modern and agitated context of life and thereby gain a better entry into the intent of the teaching. Of course we are not living in ancient times now but it is useful to hearken back to that environment for relational purposes as well as being able to be more in touch with the feeling of ancient times which in my view was more in touch with Spirit than modern culture is today. In any case, since the soul is immortal, we were actually existing during these times so hearkening back allows us to stir up those aryus that we ourselves experienced way back then that can at present can be helpful not for living in the past but for reviving our Asar who lived in the past and is living now albeit subsumed under the mountainous opaque aryu of negative thoughts and emotions. So ti is a definite help for the spiritual path and an integral aspect of Kemetic shedy.
