We dream as symbols. Symbols been around much before language was discovered ( ‘The flower of life’ symbol of sacred geometry has been found dated as far back as 6,000 years at least a millennium before documented writings or language were found)
From the Mayan symbols that encoded vast knowledge of the cosmos before modern science discovered them, to the legendary crop circles that fascinate mankind to the possibility of alien sources, to the heirogliphics of the pharoas, symbols have contained more information, universal appeal and transformative powers than other visual methods..
A symbol is a logo
a traffic post
a yantra, tool of transformation
Symbols exist in dreams.
Symbols are form energy.
For example, the cross symbolizes and contains within itself emotive suggestions that perhaps go beyond what language expresses in volumes.
A symbol is an object that represents, stands for, or suggests an idea, visual image, belief, action, or material entity. Symbols take the form of words, sounds, gestures, or visual images and are used to convey ideas and beliefs. For example, a red octagon may be a symbol for “STOP”. On a map, a picture of a tent might represent a campsite. Numerals are symbols for numbers. Personal names are symbols representing individuals. A red rose symbolizes love and compassion.
