Hello Joe and everyone,
Ourobouros? The ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it.
Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, eating its own
tail. This symbolizes the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of
destruction, Life out of Death. The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain
its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal.
I see 'hierarchy' and 'interconnection' represented by the equilateral
triangle and the circle.
