Some time ago whilst looking at the jagged design of both Futhark and Thoth Runes, I wondered if all of Thoth's runes could be converted into digital
form from a single template.
An example to follow would be how the numbers 1234567890 can all be constructed from a standard digital 8.
After some playing around, all but 1 (Jera - J) of Thoth's runes can be digitized. It turns out that there are 23 parts.
Out of curiosity, I wanted to know what was the value of 2^23. To my surprise is equals 8388608. Now here is the weird part; 2^24-1 == 16^6-1 =
Now I am sure every computer programmer out there notices that popular number as the maximum value for standard colors in long number format. 16777215
is commonly shown as #ffffff in Hexadecimal format.
So this got me thinking, what if every Thoth rune has a color related to it as well.
With the following 23 part template, I merged it with a standard color box and started to select certain parts to create the runes.
By comparing the binary template with each rune, its possible to construct a unique color in terms of Red Green Blue for each rune.
A - 8 49 208 - Ansuz
B - 128 49 216 - Berkana
C/K - 0 16 8 - Kenaz
D - 176 55 0 - Dagaz
E - 25 55 0 - Ehwaz
F - 136 33 24 - Fehu
G - 0 0 53 - Gebo
H - 57 51 17 - Hagalaz
I - 8 33 144 - Isa
J - 132 4 2 - Jera
L - 8 49 0 - Laguz
M - 185 55 0 - Mannaz
N - 98 24 4 - Nauthiz
O - 160 20 10 - Othala
P - 160 33 240 - Perthro
R - 32 49 216 - Raidho
S - 128 196 40 - Sowilo
T - 66 8 14 - Teiwaz
U/V - 41 49 0 - Uruz
W - 8 33 216 - Wunjo
X - 136 49 16 - Thurisaz
Y - 70 8 6 - Eihwaz
Z - 66 28 0 - Algiz
NG - 160 20 106 - Ingwaz
A = 110100000011000100001000 in binary, 13644040 when converted to decimal and in hex color form it is #0831D0
The following picture shows where all of Thoth's' Runes would be positioned in terms of its color.
So taking it one step further its possible to see what ATS would look like. Here we have the initial uncleaned ATS title.
Here it is cleaned.
In reference to Futhark runes ATS means the following...
A - ANSUZ: References the ancestral god, Odin
T - TEIWAZ: Tyr the Sky god
S - SOWILO: The Sun
Well there you go, a perfect summary for ATS. The Ancient God, in the Sky as enlightening as the Sun.
Now I am not sure if the actual color should be viewed as a color of the Visible Spectrum hence each rune has a natural Resonant Frequency as well.
