Etymology[edit] Although the term is Hebrew, it most likely derives from Greek geōmetriā, "geometry", which was used as a translation of gēmaṭriyā, though some scholars believe it to derive from Greek grammateia, rather; it's possible that both words had an influence on the formation of the Hebrew word.[2][3] (Some also hold it to derive from the order of the Greek alphabet, gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet (gamma + tria).[4]) The word has been extant in English since the 17th century from translations of works by Giovanni Pico della Mirandola.


Although ostensibly derived from Greek, it is largely used in Jewish texts, notably in those associated with the Kabbalah. History[edit] Some identify two forms of gematria: the "revealed" form, which is prevalent in many hermeneutic methods found throughout Rabbinic literature, and the "mystical" form, a largely Kabbalistic practice.[5] U_22 by ~xaviersanthosh81.

Description[edit] Commutation[edit] Excitation[edit] Historical milestones[edit] Faraday's disk The first electric generator was invented by Michael Faraday in 1831, a copper disk that rotated between the poles of a magnet.

Academy for Dwemer Studies. Musical Steampunk Spider Robot by *CatherinetteRings. Dwemer. The Dwemer (/dwɛ.mɚ/ dwem-mer, /dweɪ.mɚ/ dway-mer or /dwiː.mɚ/ dwee-mer), the "people of the deep", are a fabled "Lost Race"[1] of Mer from Dwemereth, which mostly consisted of modern-day Morrowind, where they are believed to have been the most prolific, though they also had a strong presence in Hammerfell, High Rock, and Skyrim.[2][3] Meric races use the term "Dwemer", which translates to "Deep-Elves"[2] or "Deep Folk".[4][5] Men commonly refer to them as Dwarves.[3] The early history of the Dwemer is still clouded in mystery.


There is no known story of their dissociation from the Aldmer, which must have occurred very early in Tamrielic history, as their society bore few correlations with that of the Altmer besides some similar legal principles.[6][7][8] The Dwemer built elaborate underground cities near and beneath mountain ranges, including the Velothi Mountains and Red Mountain, and in the mountains of the isle Stros M'Kai.
