Its just a stupid symbol, why the heck must you have buildings shaped like swastikas? Are you only wanting to provoke? Because people will be provoked, I don't really see the importents of using that symbol for anything anymore, it only brings up bad memories. And 60 years is not that long ago.


Go to Asia. The swastika is everywhere because it has had buddhist symbolism for centuries.

In the case of this building, it gives each wing a common area kinda like a mini parade ground or yard. I seriously doubt the intentions were as sinister as they were practical.

They are Swastikas...I don't care what anyone says, they have a bad reputation. So if the architects didn't care, it's their fault.

You would think that they might make some changes to the bouilding to make look normal.

It's not that the architects didn't care. I don't know if you've ever been in the military, but EVERYTHING has a functional purpose in the US Armed Forces. This includes the shape of their barracks buildings. Look at the surrounding buildings, they have a similar shape. There's a reason for this, and they apparently felt like the fact that it looks like a swastika is meaningless to the benefit of using that shape.

I think the architect was still a Nazi- what would be funny is if that was a Jewish COmmunity center or a Jewish hospital or something lol

So do you think Buddhists or Hindus are Nazi because they use that symbol? You just don't get it, do you? Just because it has the SHAPE of a swastika, doesn't mean it IS a swastika. Stop being so ignorant and start to understand that there's multiple uses for many things in this world, not just for what YOU know them for.

Have you read 'the book of Hiram' it talks about 'Memes' a sort of information highway where information connects and have sychronicities. Still need to look into it, I read just bits here and there.
Do you think the Nemes got you as you happened to be connected to this thread ironically?

Probably just a coincidence.

Yeah like an architect has no idea how his building will look when it's finished

I have not read The Book of Hiram, as I think both Knight and Lomas are a joke. I didn't even make it all the way through The Hiram Key and it's sequel, as both books were nothing but pure speculation and assumption, masked as investigation.

I'm a little confused by your description of Nemes. What exactly are they, and why am I relevant to this? How could the Nemes have 'gotten me'?

Some belive it to be kind of a "cosmic ethernet" or what have you. Some kind of Cosmic Mailing list. Ideas are past from one mind to the other. I think he was asking if you had some kind of telepathic alert that this thread was involving information you would be interested in supporting/dispelling.

Some belive its just absorbtion of memories/traditions from imersion in a society. Kinda like Santa clause, Easter bunny, God, etc.

I've got to agree, it is strange.

I mean, why build a giant swastica in a post world war 2 era?

Reminds me of this:





Trees in swastika pattern felled
BERLIN: German authorities chopped down several russet-coloured larch trees that had been planted to form a giant Swastika in a forest of evergreen pines. The larches were planted in 1938 by a devoted Hitler follower and their message only becomes visible — from the air — when the leaves turn yellow in autumn. Spurred by a wave of public protest after an aerial photograph of the 60-by-60 metre swastika was published in local newspapers, state Forestry officials moved in with chain saws early on Monday to obliterate the Nazi symbol. But a dispute over land ownership on part of the property meant that only about half of the Swastika could be cut down. — Reuters

swastika is an auspicious pre-vedic symbol perverted by nazis. i saw thousands in india (horizontal/vertical ones , not the twisted diagonal nazi one) on houses, buses etc.., it may comes from the land of Mu, it has many sacred significations not only in india but for many ancient cultures of the world. hitler's cross is NOT a swastika. So dont worry about that building.

So, it wouldn't matter to you if the Dalai Lama came out in support of this symbol?

Or a very dark-skinned Hindu priest?

They're all just Nazis who want nothing more than to off the Jews and appropriate their property?

Perhaps you should look at your avatar again...

Trinityman....wonder where you got the picture of that vase.
The symbols there are actually not of swastika but of saustika. Looks the same but saustika is actually the mirror image of a swastika.
In Hindu culture, saustika is connected with mysticism, magic, bad luck and curses, whereas the swastika is one of good fortune.
