Earlier this week I posted as my status as “卐” the swastika, because I thought it was cool that I could computer generate a swastika icon lol.
Anyway, my friend Lauren commented how the counterclockwise swastika represented shrines on maps in Japan, specially the torii gates – gates to the spiritual world. I remembered that the counterclockwise represented all the waves and the spiritual half of the Universe. The clockwise swastika represent all that is materialistic, physical. We then got into a discussion about the T motif, or the Tau. I realized that there were a lot of similarities and subliminals to the Tau all over the world that also represented the spiritual world, or more like a bridge, or connection or gate INTO the spiritual world.
For example there is that 12,000 year old archeological site in Gobekli Tepe (dates back BEFORE Christ which is 2,000) and that site is covered with T motifs, or Tau symbols:
Here is a torii gate:

Even more famous is Stonehenge

Here’s a treatise on the significance of pie.
