I know this sounds like a massive jump, but hear me out... After reading [url=http://m.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=70585296]this thread,[/url] and its several links that lead to a lot of speculation, as well as a few other articles I found online that draw a lot of parallels between previous Bungie titles, and the Halo universe as well as what may come... I couldn't help but be drawn to the symbolism that's been staring at us in the face since it was unveiled. The Marathon symbol is the symbol that represents the Marathon series and Mjolnir Recon number 54 as well. The Marathon symbol was then carried over to the Halo universe where we see it used many times in our travels, but it also serves to represent the "Reclaimers". You're all familiar with both symbols I would imagine, and while this is purely speculation from my end, it would appear that this symbol in many ways is representative of human life and quite possibly how we are to destined to protect it. The circular part in the Marathon/Reclaimer symbol can be perceived as a head, that may represent the human mind and or life in general. And then we have the curves around it which could symbolize protective arms or even arms coming together to unite. Now if you are to take the Marathon/Reclaimer symbol, and twist a few of its curves, but keep the overall intended imagery intact, you may very well wind up with the symbol that is, the Destiny symbol. The Destiny symbol seems to serve the same or very similar meaning behind the Marathon symbol from my speculation, as the shapes of their symbols seem to follow the same "formula", if you will. Though of course now we now see more of a body shape with the Destiny symbol, and still a head portion to go along with it. Both symbols somehow still seem to strongly imply some sort of importance of humanity and its need protect it as well as its position within universe. It may also continue to implicate that by some form or another, the Universes of Marathon, Halo, and Destiny, are all somehow distantly, yet closely connected. Oh and fun fact, Google the United Way symbol and notice what is in the center of it? They claim they chose this symbol because it represents "humanity". Just figured I'd add that in for fun. So, what do you guys think? Is there a creative correlation here that Bungie intended to have in order to secretly tie their many separate worlds together? Is there an even deeper meaning to the symbol than we can currently understand or know? [b]UPDATES:[/b] [I]Possibly Clues,[/i] I did a bit of looking into symbols that represent humanity. I came up with the Vitruvian man, as seen [url=http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvian_Man#section_1]here[/url] on Wikipedia. The article notes: "He believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe." I found this interesting, while at the same time I'm aware it's still hard to connect the relevance of that quote to something within one of or all of Bungie's universes. But also note that you may even seem the shape of the Destiny symbol in the image of the Vitruvian man. [i]Additional Findings,[/I] Foman was quick to remind us that the Noble 6 emblem follows the same formula of arms surrounding what could be perceived as a head. - [url=http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100822152413/halo/images/thumb/c/c7/Noblelogo.png/300px-Noblelogo.png]Click[/url] EDIT 2: Sonic John has seen this pattern before.
