Back when I was a little kid, I was always drawing this symbol all over my notebooks out of boredom:
I'm sure you have seen it before. I rarely meet a person who hasn't
seen it, and yet, I have not come across one that knows of its origins.
Some say it is from the Stussy clothing brand (hence one of its nicknames), but the company itself stated that it never used that font at any point,
and there is zero evidence leading back. Some others say it is from the Price is Right, but none of the S symbols used in that show resemble the
stussy. Other theories such as it was the logo of a specific school/sports team or it was somehow connected to the Nazis and deeply rooted in ancient
history were proven to be foolish, although, to be fair, I could not investigate the latter as much as I had hoped. As I researched it more and more,
I learned that, although some learned how to draw it from their classmates, others just drew it without knowing why or for what purpose. So then I
thought, since money is used all the time, could this be the child's subconscious drawing the symbol for money, expressing their desire to acquire
wealth in life? No, because not every country in the world uses the dollar sign, and this is a global
phenomenon. So then, why do people keep
That is when I had a crazy idea that I had not thought of before. I remember a specific passage from the Bible that talks about the tree of life.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her
fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
I found the numerology of 22:2 to be somewhat amusing, but coincidences aside, I always wondered in the past why when the tree of life is drawn down,
it is shown to have 10 points, yet it clearly states in the Bible that the Tree of Life has 12
fruits. I eventually found a Tree of Life that
contained 12 points and decided to put it under the stussy:
The result is not too surprising, since the stussy already has a somewhat crystallized form, as does the tree of life. Another point of interest was
The Stussy's outer shape has 12 points or 12 sides to it.
Have I unlocked something meaningful, or is this just wishful thinking? It is said that the younger a child is, the more attuned him/her is to things
that are supernatural, and it is definitely more popular the lower the age range goes. Are kids compelled to draw these because they feel a connection
Does this symbol represent life?
I am interested in any comments and information you all have on the issue, since this, to me, is one of the most mysterious subjects I have come
