Is the use of symbols a form of communication?



sym·bol·o·gy -
1) The study or interpretation of symbols or symbolism.
2) The use of symbols

Are you talking about certain symbols or all of them in general. A symbol can make you think of something and relay a message but I'm not sure how you can talk using them.

Of course it is. You're very question is a use of symbols that is communicating your question. Written language uses symbols to get across language. Other than written language, there are street signs that communicate traffic information, mathematical symbols used to communicate mathematical concepts, religious symbols communicate religious and theological concepts, warning symbols on bottles, (the old skull and cross bones communicates poison).

Since you posted this in the secret societies forum, was there some other sense to your question, like some specific communication using esoteric symbols?

Symbols communicate directly with the subconscious and as such, are one of the most powerful forms of communication. There is a wonderful book written by the great
C. G. Jung. called "Man and His Symbols". you can get it used in paperback at Amazon or some such. It is all about symbols.

Using mathematical symbols in a Philisophical setting, you can convey thought.

A good example is explaining, that a square has four equivelent sides. And is also geometrically sound.
And there's the obvious, Truth Tables. Which I just now remembered.

A picture if a guy looking at hieroglyphs.....

What about them?

Please learn to add a bit of commentary as to what the point you are trying to make is.

As of yet, you've made no clear connection as to why you've posted this in the Secret Societies forum.

On this board, proper etiquette dictates using symbols consisting of letters, numbers, and punctuation to convey ideas.

The key to using symbols to communicate is that the reciever understands the intended message, as to this, you're failing miserably.

Temple Mount, Jerusalem



THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT ANTIQUITIES

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem represents the greatest point of sanctity for the Jewish people. King Solomon established the Temple, or Beit Ha-Mikdash, on Mt. Moriah. The Temple had a section known as the Holy of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant, containing the Ten Commandments and the Torah, was housed. While it stood, Jews were required to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem three times a year. After the First Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE by the Babylonians, Jewish exiles returned to Jerusalem in 538 BCE and completed the construction of the Second Temple in 515 BCE. Even after the Temple's destruction by Roman armies in 70 CE, the site of the Temple remained the direction of Jewish prayer.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong but, isn't "hands raised to god" equal to "1,000,000", and and an "arch" equal to "10"?

How do we know that the original interpretation was correct?

And what if the interpretation is correct, but it is being used in another form out of context?

Try researching the Rosetta stone.


Source
The Rosetta Stone was a slab carved with symbols in languages found by archeologists. When researchers studied the slab, they were able to figure out what hieroglyphic symbols meant by translating the hieroglyphs against the known languages found on the slab.
