This blog has a number of detailed posts on spiritual symbols. So a few people have asked how they relate to our novel. Nexus has many aspects to it and as a narrative it is primarily focused on a fast-paced plotline, though symbols are explicitly mentioned by Chandra Singh, a teacher in our story, to illustrate spiritual wisdom. Here is a passage where symbols find clear expression:
Another pause, and Chandra notes: The wisdom of this wholeness is conveyed succinctly in the Taoist yin-yang, the Hindu symbol, the Sri Yantra with its multiple interlocking triangles emerging from the center-point. A Kabbalistic interpretation of the Star of David also called the Seal of Solomon suggests that it is a harmony of two principles like heaven and earth. The pentagram also represents wholeness with each point representing one of the five elements.”
“The main point of all these symbols, except for the yin-yang, is the meeting-point at the center of two aspects. We are at the outer edges and our journey is to find the center. The yin-yang goes a step further in showing that polar opposites, rather than being exclusive, form the composite whole.
On this website, I have tried to explore some of the deeper aspects of symbols, which I hope will prove insightful for visitors. The common theme of wholeness and connectedness is expressed by many of them.
