Koine etymology

Standard

Got a new book in the mail today.  Stumbled upon these words, and I started speculating a bit.

The Koine Greek words for consciousness and perception appear to me to be related, συνείδησις and συναίσθησις, respectively.  With a modern pronunciation they’re nearly homophones as well, being one vowel sound and one consonant apart.

That’s really interesting.  I get the feeling there’s some important truth lurking about, there.
