..."So they devised ciphers, codes and symbolism for the their own and future generations to decipher. Symbols are hidden all around us like a trail of clues leading towards treasure. We come into contact with them everywhere we go; from the symbolic architecture and stained glass windows of medieval churches, to, for example, the logo on a company van.
Mankind has used this subtle language for thousands of years. Through each generation, this alternative form of communication has developed and grown increasingly complex, making it more difficult to decipher. The only way to discover the secrets of symbolism is to break down each and every painting, building or text into every possible meaning, and consider both the people who created these artefacts and the time in which they lived." - The Shining Ones: The World's most powerful secret society revealed.Philip Gardiner
