any explanation someone...
How many possible simple geometric shapes are there? Not too many, really. An elliptical eye/disc shape. A circle. A triangle. A square. A star
with a variety of points. ???
It doesn't take long when associating these shapes with things (like parts of the human body) before you start repeating them. Now, the Eye of
Horus, the lens shape, is also a Christian fish shape. But turn it vertical and it's also an obvious female symbol. Of course, you can then try to
associate these things because they share a similar symbolic shape. Christianity a female religion linked to Egypt? An Isis cult, perhaps? But the
association may never have been intended by the people creating the symbols. It might only be something you make up in your own mind.
Likewise with bird symbols. The eagle has been chosen as a symbol for Imperial Rome, Nazi Germany, and the United States, among others. Are they all
part of the same (secret) organization? Or is the eagle just one of the few cool, majestic looking birds you can use as a symbol? What else are you
going to use? A pigeon? A robin? A turkey?
Like a lot of things, we humans tend to look for patterns and associations in things. We're obsessive about it, and will sometimes see associations
when there really aren't any.
