Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.

Etymology

מִ־ (mi-)

  2. Than, more than.
  3. (Template loop detected: Template:context 1) Without, without the existence or presence of.

Usage notes

  • In writing with niqud, he preposition מִ־ induces a dagesh forte (gemination) in the following consonant, unless that consonant is one that doesn't accept dagesh (i.e. א, ה, ח, ע, or ר), in which case the preposition becomes מֵ־ (mei-), except before חוט (khut), thread), חוץ (khutz), outside), היות (h'yot), be), where it remains מִ־. However, neither gemination nor the vowel change is ordinarily reflected in Modern Israeli Hebrew pronunciation.
