Shin

Shin (also spelled Šin or Sheen) is the twenty-first letter in many Semitic abjads, including  Phoenician, Aramaic/Hebrew ש, and Arabic šīn (in abjadi order, 12th in modern order).  The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek Sigma , Latin S, and the letter Sha in the Glagolitic and Cyrillic scripts.

It represents the Intelligence or spirit being that is equivalent to the Fire level and layer.

The level also has a number associated with it correlating is with the songlines.

The Ancient picture for this letter is  a picture of the two front teeth.  It also has the meaning of two, again, both or second from the two teeth.   The modern Hebrew name for this letter is shin, a Hebrew word meaning tooth. Hebrew and Arabic agree that the sound for this letter is "sh". The early pictograph evolved into in the Middle Semitic script and continued to evolve into in the Late Semitic Script. From the middle Semitic script comes the Modern Hebrew ש. The Middle Semitic script is also the origin of the Greek letter S and the Latin S.
