Any language, be it mathematical or not, relies on arbitrary commonly agreed symbols. It is extremely difficult (or impossible) to guess the meaning of symbols. What you need is context, or a previous translation. Think about the Rosetta stone.
Maths is the universal language... of physics, useful for expressing relationships about quantities. You can't write "welcome, please land here" with maths.

I have never said that I didn't believe in UFO's because I have seen them myself, I do not however believe that they are alien spacecraft or that they are from the future.
My idea for a base/welcome center is something that I believe we need. It is an idea that I would think every UFO enthusiast would be interested in. I am willing to work toward building it but no "believer" is. When I came up with this idea I believed that some UFO's could be alien in nature. Since joining ATS, I am more convinced than ever that it is a religion because people are so defensive of their beliefs.

You know, it just hit me... All the crop circles we're seing are becoming more and more complex and mathematically intricate. Perhaps someone's already hit upon your idea and is laying out these circles in order to attract offworld attention. Just a thought.
