hmm... i know my ex hated me for such (for those who didn't know it i was married to a muslima)
BUT TAKE THIS SENTENCE IN LATIN LETTERS AND COVER IT TO 3/4 AND IT'S STILL READABLE.
do that whith arabic letters it won't work, it won't work with any else as latin.
the latin letters are the most advanced ones, artificially created with the goal to be always readable and easy to reproduce.
remove one of those shitty dots in arabic and it means something different.
persian might be the oldest letters, but well even this isn't true (i will be murdered now)
american natives had a way to preserve musical notes with a system of knots in laces, it's systematic, reproducable and understandable, it's in fact far older as persian letters but they are no hyroglyphs no icons or symbols, it's systematic thus they are letters.
besides to be "the oldest" isn't a predicate, to be the most advanced is one.
the stream of time leads to the future and not to the past.
weird as i am i feel the latin letters are far more aesthetic.
i don't like to much decoration, even this tells me something about the character behind, because if you do right you won't need to decorate it.
a line, a single curve can be much more aesthetic as.
the perfection of aesthetic is in nature and she didn't wastes power for decorating, it's useless.
useles like those typical maghrib style windows or doors which lead to nowhere but are heavy decorated.
something "nice" but it leads to nowhere.
i stay with old archimedes, the perfection of aestetic is the simplicity of the sphere.
my ex did nice things in arabic, you know this typical decorated letter stuff, but she can't do what i can do with the latin letters, i can deform them, invert them, do almost what i like with them and it never changes the sense.

that's really advanced, far ahead of it's time in fact.
my recent avatar (but i chose it bofore i wrote this) has a writing in it (ok it's to small to be read, so here it is):
