    Sator square

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by sfr, Jul 4, 2008.

    What's the significance of that thing? How could you make something like that?

    A better question: what is it?

    Do you have any thoughts about what the Sator square is, Banzai.

    Okay, having googled it, I now know what it is. But I'm still hazy as to what you're asking.

    This is the wikipedia page on it, in case you hadn't already searched there.

    Mighty clever I suppose. I'm not overly supersitious but it seems sort of special in a way. I was just wondering if you knew anything about it that wasn't on wikipedia.

    Personally, I think all of the superstition is crap. It's a fairly impressive arangement of letters, but last I checked, that didn't mean something had magical powers. And no, I didn't know what it was until I wiki-ed it.

    What exactly is the meaning of such a thing? Was it just something clever some guy came up with?

    With all the permutaions of letters in language, is it really so strange that someone eventually stumbled upon such a perfect puzzle phrase??

    Of course, having found it, people must assume there is a cosmic significance...

    It seems as if it was in a Christian Church or something like that, so anyone could have made it, as long as they believe in God, they could make a Sator Square, so someone could as easily make a Satan Square if they really wanted to, so i guess it has no significance, just shows the belief of a man/woman
