In today’s world, everyone seems to be looking for meaning. They go on epic journeys, vision quests, and yoga retreats trying to find it. Others go through life blissfully unaware of their surroundings, never really looking at the things around them. Then there is the rest of us, quietly going through our day to day lives, taking the world as it comes to us. Have you ever wondered about some of the things you see on a daily basis? Those things that are so present that they are almost ingrained, like you barely see them anymore?
In this video we will take a look at ten everyday symbols people do not know actually mean something. Most things are designed with a purpose; it is not often that something is created by accident. Many items we use or see everyday have meanings we may not have been aware of. For example, the Bluetooth symbol. It looks pretty random, right? Well, as it turns out, the ‘B’ came from somewhere, other than being the first letter of ‘bluetooth’. The same could be said for the ampersand symbol. It does not really look like anything in particular, but if you go back in history, there is a reason it looks the way it does. It is really quite fascinating when you think about it. Even the spikes on the crown of the Statue of Liberty have a meaning, but not many people realize it. What do they all mean? Well, you are about to find out.
