Similarities between the two following images will provide a clue to the modern use of SYMBOLISM:- the immediate and superficial…..effect on the unconscious, of images and/or sounds.
The Rosetta Stone (above) is an ancient Egyptian granodiorite stele inscribed with a decree issued at Memphis in 196 BC on behalf of King Ptolemy V.* (References to the Zionist Messiah are extant).
Sharks and Shark Fins (above)

“Sharks figure prominently in Hawaiian mythology. Stories tell of men with shark jaws on their back who could change between shark and human form. A common theme was that a shark-man would warn beach-goers of sharks in the waters. The beach-goers would laugh and ignore the warnings and get eaten by the shark-man who warned them. Hawaiian mythology also includes many shark gods.” *
“The term Rosetta stone has been used idiomatically to represent a crucial key to the process of decryption of encoded information, especially when a small but representative sample is recognized as the clue to understanding a larger whole……” *
That KEY, for those looking for a hypotenuse route, is SYMBOLISM. It is NO coincidence that a particular course in learning languages is called the Rosetta Stone.
