Here, someone take these!

Recommended Posts

Awesome! Yes, the lines were supposed to meet, must have smudged off the page. That turned out great! I am working on Darkness now. It's exciting to have other people work on symbols with me! (I probably draw symbols a lot)

 

Not sure why I didn't think to scan them... I will draw them on white paper and do that.

since i am indirectly baned from doing "favors", i will just announce when i would make one, just so as example.

I don't know you, never talked to you, never saw you in-game, but "normally" i would single you out and try to pull out all wahts best in you on symbols perception and give you an amazing 'favor' everyone would envy. Why? because i think the drawings are awesome, and if you managed that, there is defenetly something=1 in you that needs boosted to see what comes out of it.

 

But since i don't want to socially destroy you, i won't give you anything. In fact after posting this here i will probably ignore you just to protect you from the crowd.

 

Good luck and enjoy MD, whats left of it.

Well, to be frank I am quite honored by the positive response! I have enjoyed our meeting! I don't really care about in-game favors, we could talk about symbols and perception if you'd like. They are very nearly my favorite subjects. 

 

But in any case, I will finish the Principles. Here is Darkness.

I will enjoy MD! I always have. I've been dipping in occasionally for several years now, and have seen a little of its history go by. The Principles always thoroughly interested me. If you're to ignore me, I'd just like to say I really enjoyed your book! It's the sort of book I always wanted books to be. Mind opening and motivating.

Cool artwork. Almost all the principles I have at MP4. I would like to see the rest, especially the one for Syntropy.

I would exchange the artwork of Cyclicity and Balance though (but that is just how I see them).

Working on Time, which revealed itself with relative ease. I already had a mental grasp on the nature of some of these, making the distilling into symbols easier. Having a little trouble with Light, though. If you'd like, Fang (or anyone willing to expound a little!) we could hash out some aspects of the Light Principle?

So far, I've been considering the nature of lights reflectivity, how it moves in a sphere from a point and scatters across its environment. Also I was considering how everything projects a shrinking image of itself in a sphere around itself. This is true for aspects as well as physical reality. When Light is revealing say, a thoughtform of some sort, the information is projected from the source in the same way. I have a lot of thoughts about it but a more complete grasping of the concept would be ideal.

For Cyclicity, the idea was that in the inner or smaller circles, the entire symbol was reproduced. I can see why the symbol for Balance could represent Cyclicity. The idea behind the symbol was that it contained three sets of yin and yang, as well as two balanced and interlaced triplicate unified sets. Each triplicate represents a unified and solid aspect of reality that is at once whole and balanced with its opposite. Honestly a yin and yang probably would portray Balance very well, but then it is quite a multifaceted symbol. I did like how this symbol turned out though, with the hexagram in the center, another symbol balance and the uniting of opposites, which is in spiral.

These all were geared to be circle based, so they could be drawn around the perimeter of a larger circle. Maybe I will post a very basic sketch of that? Edited by Yasrin Luvien

Thanks! It is eye-like, for a reason! Time is more of a perception thing than a strict reality in itself. Most of us have been aware of the alteration of time at the basic "This day is taking forever" level. Time looks like a reality from the point of perception, but removed from that it can be viewed as a simple state of existence. I am having trouble describing this a little... The idea in the symbol was that what looks like the sphere of time (our perception of current reality) is in fact an illusion, based on the reference point. Seeing Time from the outside (viewing the symbol from an outer reference point and not from within) one can see that there is not a solid existence but a wave defined by perception. I made the eye extend beyond the inner circle of perception because I believe that though our bodies are located in a reference point to time, our perception can extend beyond that, and may even do so without our conscious awareness.

new times new mood.

I will be rewarding you something really special, and permanent, once you finish all symbols, assuming you will do all equally interesting.

 

If you agree, your symbols will be used in-game to represent the principles.

 

If there is any principle that you don't know what to draw for..don't push it, take time, do it well.its one time thing..must be really good.

 

(poke me when i need to look)

I certainly agree! I am really quite honored. I will put the time and effort they deserve into them. When I first started them, it was to decorate an avatar, though I had every intention of making the symbols as accurate as possible. 

 

Here is that rudimentary sketch I mentioned (the idea for that avatar that I started so long ago).

(As a short aside, I was pleased to see that Mur's post suggesting the symbols be used in-game was #22, which is my favorite number and holds quite a bit of relevance for me)

What would be the ideal format for these to be finalized in? With pencil, ink, or on the computer? An example of a symbol I have drawn on the computer turned out like this:

Though I could likely improve on that.
