  Overview of the Abjad numerological system
There are two principle variations in the Abjad system as to the value of certain letters; the Arabs of North Africa and Spain gave a different alpha-numeric order to some of the letters in the 100s than was common in the Levant and the Islamic east.
The initial sound in abjad is a short "a." In any language a word beginning with a vowel is proceeded by a glottal stop (quickly pronounce the words "a apple" and you will hear and feel the glottal stop in between them).
It is easy with the benefit of hindsight or in the light of subsequent scientific knowledge, to develop a sense of hubris about the superior understanding of matters of history we have compared to the actual participants in the events had.

Abjad letter-numerals are the letters of the Arabic alphabet given numerical values.

The term takes its name from the first nonsense 'word' of the mnemonic sequence for the letters of the Arabic alphabet, the 'old' order which was used before the letters were rearranged and grouped according to their graphic shapes.
"Impure" abjads (such as Arabic) may have characters for some vowels as well, or optional vowel diacritics, or both; however, the term's originator, Peter T. Daniels, insists that it should be applied only to scripts entirely lacking in vowel indicators, thus excluding Arabic, Hebrew, and Syriac.

 Hyperstition: The ABJAD version of the numogram: phase 1
ABJAD is an acronym derived from the first four consonants of Hebrew / Arabic / Persian alphabet; Alif, Ba, Jim, Dal.
ABJADs belong to semitic family of scripts, the reason for the emergence of this derivative line is obvious: semitic languages as Porush insists have a morphemic structure rendering signification of vowels redundant or impossible in most cases...
This is why ABJADs are perfectly applicable to ultra-complex dynamic platforms (such as warmachines and their plane of tacticity), digraming a numeracy “immanenet to thier assemblges” and soft grids of movement (read Nick’s post).
