Isaac,

Furthermore, if there is no such thing as "come from" in Hebrew then how are any 
of the words in your etymological scheme, which is as extensive as mine, at all 
connected?

Subject: head and see

In my opinion there is no such thing in Hebrew as "comes from". One word does 
not "come from" another word. If ראש RO$, 'head', "comes from"  ראה RAAH, 'see', 
then by this plan of things רעש RAA$, 'rattle', "comes from" רעה RAAH, 
'pasture'.
