Prefix Verbs Explained - "auslegen"

What's the meaning(s) of "auslegen"? Does it mean "to lay out"? And what is the difference to "rauslegen"? All this and more in this epic episode...

Word Family

Root: *legh-

The core idea of this root was:

laying, lying down

of course the verbs to lay and to lie belong here, but the root is also the origin of law, lair, ledger, allay and low.  And of lager, which is essentially a German word that means storage.
