Iím not surprised!! r/teslore is my favorite spiritual battleground. The Elder Scrolls teaches the pattern more than any media Iíve encountered, not just the stories but how to compile, extract, and reference conflicting sources.

A 'button' is a 'butt-on'. Sex magic.

Quote
button (n.)
"from Old French boton "a button," originally "a bud" (12c., Modern French bouton), from bouter, boter "to thrust, strike, push," common Romanic (cognate with Spanish boton, Italian bottone), ultimately from a Germanic source, from Proto-Germanic *buttan, from PIE root *bhau- "to strike." Thus a button is, etymologically, something that pushes up, or thrusts out."

Why do we call our family 'relatives'? The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb? Our chosen 'family' is stronger than our 'randomly allotted' one related by blood?

Allotted: given for a definite/particular purpose.  Random: without definite/particular aim or purpose.  People are drawn together by underlying currents, family and friends... even foes.

'Bank of America' is really 'Bank away from America'.

The 'Department of Justice' is really 'Department away from Justice'.

The etymology of 'of' is 'away, away from'.

of (prep.)

Of in the sense that it means 'away from' as in 'derived from'.  Spirits of salts.  Queen of England.  Descended from.  Many senses to this one.

How relevant is the etymology of your own name and to what extent does it influence your life?

Very. Words are vibrations. What notes are being played? Do you like your song?

The etymology of 'John Stewart' is 'Jehova(god)has favored (this) defender of the house(or warden)'.

So this thing about 'CHAZ' and 'CHOP' is interesting. They had one in Seattle (apparently it's not up anymore?) and now there's one in NYC (still called 'CHAZ' and 'CHOP').

'Chaz' is an abbreviation for 'Charles'. The etymology of 'Charles' is 'free man'. The etymology of 'chop' is 'to cut with a quick blow'. From Vulgar Latin for 'to behead'.

Add those two together and you get something close to '(The)Free man(men) are being (quickly) beheaded'.
