[4c3. Minno: Aewa]
THÀT WORD ÉWA IS TO FRÁN VMBE AN MÉNA SÉKA TO NOMANDE. THERVMBE HET MÀN VS ÉVIN SEZA LÉRTH. The word ‘aewa’ is too sacred for common use. Therefore, we have learned to say ‘even’.

Aewa refers to the rules that are imprinted equally in the hearts of all people, in order that they may know what is right and what is wrong, and by which they are able to judge their own deeds and those of others; that is, insofar as they have been brought up well and are not corrupted.

There is also yet another meaning attached; aewa also relates to ‘ae-like’ — that is water-like: even and smooth like water that is not disturbed by windstorm or anything else. If water is disturbed, it becomes uneven, ‘unright’, but it always has a tendency to become even again.

We derive this disposition from our feeder(1) — Wralda's spirit — which speaks strongly in Frya's children, and will eternally remain so.

Aewa is also the other symbol of Wralda's spirit,(2) which eternally remains just and undisturbed, although in his physical body there may be rage. Aewa and being undisturbed are the signs of wisdom and righteousness, which must be sought after by all pious people, and must be possessed by all judges.

(1) ‘feeder’ (FODER, elsewhere FÉDER) – or: nourisher, provider; later a relation with ‘father’ is suggested and as AL.FODER/ AL.FÉDER it can both mean all-father and all-feeder.
(2) The first symbol being the Yule or six-spoke wheel of time; see page [045].
