     "This symbol represents a man's sense of "I", where the Horizontal Line and Vertical Line intersect.  The Horizontal Line is analogous to the passage of time:  the left-hand side of the symbol as you see it is the past, and the right-hand side is the future.  A man finds himself at the intersection, seemingly carried along the Line of time, but he is tied to the past always.  This gives each person a sense of continuity, and helps explain why people are attracted to what seems to be old.  But now, in a sense, to begin to See above the Line of ordinary "I" sight, you must view the symbol from another direction.  The past of man is not only to the left of the Horizontal Line.  That Line does exist, but it represents something else:  In this new orientation, the Horizontal Line represents the Line of ordinary human consciousness, and the area below the intersection is the history of man."  JC talk 0016
