ITT: I thought the geomantic symbols were an alphabet

[b]NEVERMIND :'([/b][quote][quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BahamutZER0 [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geomantic_figures]I thought we'd settled on them being these?[/url][/quote]What the?! Nobody told me about those. /thread -_-[/quote] [quote][b]ORIGINAL POST[/b] Or Greek (if you include the blank version). [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_alphabet#Classical_Latin_alphabet]Classical Latin[/url] If you include the blank letter, there's 24 variations of layouts. (Greek) However if you exclude it there are only 23 variations. (Classical Latin) We were given 7 of them (check the most recent page of available avatars). If you combine them with each other you get 23 versions. [url=http://i.imgur.com/cy4ew.png]Here's the alphabet.[/url] Oh, and the number of squares in each of the avatar letters adds up to 42. That could be completely irrelevant, I've no idea. 'Destiny' has 7 letters; there are 7 avatars. It could spell Destiny.

Nobody told me about those. /thread -_- That seriously sucks. I thought I was onto something much more complex than already-made symbols. [Edited on 12.12.2012 9:55 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] HDhacker I don't know if someone has discovered this or not, But I took the number of highlighted squares and simply looked them up on the ASCII chart. Here is what I got: 1 had 4 highlighted squares 2 had 7 highlighted squares 4 had 6 highlighted squares 6 = acknowledge 7 = bell 4 = end of transmission The only thing that i can think of with this little theory I *may* have created could be a message that may be similiar along the lines of: Can you acknowledge? Bell, do you acknowledge? Do you acknowledge Bell? Please acknowledge. *end of transmission*[/quote] Bell would make a good name for an AI, maybe in destiny?

  • I've tried to implement at least 7 number systems for the positioning of the squares, but it doesn't work. Somehow each of the squares determine a possible letter depending on where they are. Eventually I managed to get a working system, but then the [i]combined[/i] letters break it. I'll find a way. Also, I have produced [url=http://i.imgur.com/R5hBw.png]another alphabet[/url] based on the [b]given[/b] letters being placed on [b]combined[/b] letters from the original image, and a [url=http://i.imgur.com/EpE1M.jpg]red on green[/url] alphabet. [url=http://i.imgur.com/YM60g.png]Here's[/url] the number system testing ground I use.
