Baybayin (incorrectly known as Alibata) is a syllabic “pre-Filipino” writing system from the islands known as the “Philippines”. Baybayin comes from the root word, “baybay”, meaning to spell. The script consists of 14 consonants and 3 vowels. Each of the consonants ends with the vowel “A”. For example, the letter B would actually be BA. The original “alphabet” consists of the following characters:
A | E/I | O/U
Ba | Ka | Da | Ga | Ha | La | Ma | Na | Nga | Pa | Sa | Ta | Wa | Ya
The vowel sound is changed by diacritical mark called a Kudlit below or above the character. To cancel the inherit vowel sound, a cancellation Kudlit (Virama) is placed under the character in the form of an X or +.
I’m Kristian Kabuay, founder of Baybayin.com and have been a practitioner of the ancient Filipino script since the 90’s. Besides promoting the script via my artwork and technology projects, you can find me facilitating workshops around the San Francisco area. I’m currently working on a documentary, online school and a follow-up to my 2009 book, “An Introduction to Baybayin”.
My vision for this application is for it to become a universal tool for "translating" to Baybayin regardless of your spoken language and also serve as a portable hub for all things related to the script. It’s also my wish that once you become familiar with Baybayin, they also dig deeper into other aspects of our pre-Spanish history and ACT on what was learned.

Unlike other branches of philosophies, this explains the relationship between the individuals and their metaphysical view of looking the world. This field has answered the simple yet essential query i.e. what is? This question include everything from creation, look of outer world and its reality.
The top scientific and philosophical school today have different metaphysical views. These views reveals the thoughts of every school about sciences and philosophy. The thoughts vary from school to school.
The word metaphysics is derived from Greek word “Meta” and “Physika”. The blend of both makes Meta physics with a meaning of beyond physical world. People believe that this word “Metaphysics” was invented by Aristotle. But this is not the fact, Andronicus of Rhodes have used this word first to describe the body of work and later it is used by Aristotle in physics. Here Meta means work of Philosopher, which came into existence after “physics”

Unlike physics, Metaphysics field explain the things that goes beyond scientists. The things that are included in metaphysics are third eye and paranormal activities. Metaphysics is an important area. It is the known fact that we all possess metaphysics system though we haven’t read or listen to discipline. For example, nature of survival is one of the basic concept in metaphysics, which all of us know without reading any of the book. The people who think that there is a real world around them will have a bit of metaphysical vision.
The second key area of metaphysics is the law that is ruling this world. Compared to all the laws in the world, law of causality is considered as essential one. This relates each action with the previous action. This law basically gives clear definition about metaphysics and view the world in two perspectives. The predictable causation will either lead to primary causation or endless causation. The people who believes in primary causation have great belief and trust in God. They think that power of God is driving them. The people who believe in endless causation have chaotic view about the existence of the world.
Moreover, metaphysics is not confined only to these areas. Since, it is quite cumbersome to give more detailed description about metaphysics we have discussed these few areas. However, these areas covered gives a clear view of metaphysics and its nature. Believe it or not all the individuals possess metaphysical perception in them using which they view the world in a right manner.

This mobile application provides a doorway into the work and research of the School of Metaphysics on dreams.
The purpose behind the development of ‘The Dreamers Dictionary App’ is to provide the ability for as many people as possible to learn about dreams and their importance in their individual evolution.
Dreams are the most commonly recognized means via which the inner mind communicates with the outer mind. For thousands of years dreams have been captivating mankind and have become an integral part of every culture on this planet. For the past 100 years modern psychotherapy has explored the meaning of dreams and their therapeutic value. Although no single theory or model on how to interpret dreams exists, writing down and exploring dreams allows one to heed messages from his/her inner/subconscious mind.
Each dream relates a message about the dreamer’s current state of awareness. The dream message has immediacy, applying to the thoughts and attitudes of the previous 24 to 48 hours. Everything in the dream, each person, place or thing represents some aspect, quality or way of thinking of the dreamer. Messages in dreams are conveyed through the picture language of dreams referred to as the Universal Language of the Mind. This language has been studied and taught for the past 40 years at the School of Metaphysics. Interpretation of dreams in the Universal Language of Mind aids the dreamer to discover the truth that will open his/her eyes to the reality of his/her own thinking, to the consciousness of the Self and to the ideals of the soul.
’The Dreamer’s Dictionary App’ is to contain the essence of the School of Metaphysics’ dream research and to provide users with easy means of looking up dream symbols’ interpretation in the Universal Language of Mind, submitting dreams for interpretation and sharing dreams via Twitter.
