After all in essence you are saying its written in plain ol language
that is just not used anymore and there is no code whatsoever.
Well, I'm beginning to understand the dilemma here. I did notice that several books that have published this insignia all claim that the clockwise
Runic inscription has been untranslated to date, and I see now why.
Nazis officially liked to use the Elder Futhark Runes for inscriptions. Some Germanic Secret Societies that were pre-Nazi Germany used Armanen Runes.
Later during WWII, many Nazi groups utilized the Wiligut Runes.
The Runes in the inscription are none of these. There are Runic characters that are in common with all three of these, but there are characters that
exist in none of them. Also, it clearly uses a cursive form of Runic which is something very odd and unusual of itself (outside of Carolingian and
Late Medieval Irish Manuscripts).
I believe one of the keys to translating it is the fact that the Runes in the center are "a reversi" (mirrored in reverse). Drawing Runes mirrored
is a practice called "The Nightside". This might indicate a simple Rune Row cipher such as the UTHARK method.
However, the whole exercise is most likely for naught as it appears this symbol very well could be a fabrication that has been perpetuated and
accepted as factual by those not researching their facts.
The symbol first appears in use in author Peter Moon's (real name: Vince Barbarick), book entitled 'The Black Sun: Montauk's Nazi-Tibetan
Connection' published in 1997. It has been mentioned after this appearance in works by Norbert Jürgen Ratthofer, Ralf Ettl, Jan van Helsing, and
reprinted and mentioned at length in Dr. Joseph P. Farrell's book 'Reich of the Black Sun' published in 2005. Farrell provides no other sources
than those who keep quoting or referencing Peter Moon.
Most of these books are available online either at books.google.com or in pdf format. It didn't take too much time to trace things far enough
It would appear that this symbol is entirely a late 1990's invention of Peter Moon or an associate. That would explain why it doesn't correspond to
any of the Runic Methods in use at the time of Nazi era Germany. I've wasted a couple hours looking at it, and I think I'm willing to accept it as
nothing more than an exercise in futility.
