The transition from analog to digital, the male-female principle and the VAIO logo

Sony-Vaio-Logo

Sony VAIO logo

There are several different ways of looking at VAIO’s holographic cryptographic logo. The V and A and the I and O pairings are both representative of the male-female principle. These are archetypes that symbolise a concept in it’s essential and unchangeable form.

Inverted, AV stands for Audio-Video or Audio-Visual. IO stands for Input-Output.

As mentioned, I O is also binary if you transpose the letter I for the number 1 and the letter O for the number 0.

PS2-logo

PS2 logo

The VAIO logo was an early rendition of the trans-humanist family of font-types and corporate logos including for example PS2 evolving to become thinner, more elongated, minimalist, abstracted and digitized lettering that resemble symbols that computers can inherently understand.

Etymology
Originally an acronym of Video Audio Integrated Operation, this was amended to Visual Audio Intelligent Organizer in 2008 to celebrate the brand’s 10th anniversary. The branding was created by Timothy Healy to distinguish items that integrate consumer audio and video with conventional computing products, such as the Sony VAIO W Series personal computer, which functioned as a regular computer and a miniature entertainment center. The VAIO logo also represents the integration of analog and digital technology with the ‘VA’ representing an analog wave and the ‘IO’ representing a digital binary code. Source

So as well as representing the male-female principle, the Sony VAIO logo also signifies the transition from the analog waveforms of the ‘real world’ to the binary bits of the digital realm.

The brand name Sony incidentally is an amalgam of ‘sonus’, meaning sound and ‘sonny’. Sonny was a popular term of endearment in Japan at the time of the companies founding. There is no Mr Sony or Sony dynasty only Sony Corporation.

The sun is masculine – the Holy Father, the son of God, Jesus, the Light of the World. The moon is feminine and associated with the goddess.

Ken Ward provides a table showing the dualist relationship of the sun and the moon, the male-female principle:

The Moonwalk of the Callanish Stones

by 5ocietyx

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones are situated near the village of Callanish on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

It is probable that Callanish (or Calanais) – which comprises two other stone circles in addition to the main site – was built some 5,000 years ago as a lunar calendar. The path of the moon, unlike the reliably annual tracks of the sun, only returns to the same point once every 18.6 years. Callanish plots this slow progress, building to a crescendo in the 19th year at the lunar standstill – when the path of the moon is so low that it seems to walk along the horizon before setting within the stone circle.

Callanish’s mystery to the expectant crowd is not merely in the stones, but in their setting within a sacred landscape. To the south-west of the stones is a low, undulating hill known to the local people in Gaelic as Cailleach na Mointeach – the old woman of the moors, or Sleeping Beauty as she is more affectionately known. The contours look irresistibly like a reclining woman. At the lunar standstill the moon rises from behind this hill, tip-toes across her supine body and sets four hours later behind the Clisham, another sacred hill.

This moonwalk will happen throughout the summer once a month until September, and will draw hundreds for a number of reasons. Some people come to worship the full moon, others to witness the goddess walking the earth. All come in expectation of a spiritual experience and to feel the energy of the planet.

The Sighthill Stones face destruction

by 5ocietyx

Sign the petition below to stop Glasgow council scrapping the Sighthill Stones, the first meaningful stone circle to have been constructed in the modern age, by the Scottish Astronomer Duncan Lunan.

In 1973 Duncan Lunan reported to the British Interplanetary Society that he had identified and deciphered a hidden radio message sent by an alien space probe, caught but overlooked in the late 1920s by a collaboration of Norwegian and Dutch researchers. Lunan maintained that the putative message came from an object at the L5 point in the same orbit as the Moon, sent by the inhabitants of a planet orbiting Epsilon Boötis.

He concluded the message was “Start here. Our home is Upsilon Bootes, which is a double star. We live on the sixth planet of seven, coming from the sun, which is the larger of the two. Our sixth planet has one moon. Our fourth planet has three. Our first and third planets each have one. Our probe is in the position of Arcturus, known in our maps.”

The ring of fire annular eclipse

The ring of fire annular eclipse

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon obscures 90% of the sun causing the ‘ring of fire’ effect.

Supermoon

Supermoon

Keep a close eye on the Full Moon this weekend. It is now about as close to the Earth as it ever gets. The Moon regularly comes a little nearer to the Earth, then slips slightly further away. But this doesn’t always happen at Full Moon and it hasn’t happened quite this close to a Full Moon for 100 years. Many expect it to trigger exceptionally high tides. Some are even speaking about earthquakes and floods. But whatever else this ‘Supermoon’ does, it will look unusually big when it rises… and suggests an exceptionally intense weekend for us all.

The Nebra Sky Disk

by 5ocietyx

The Nebra sky disk is a bronze disk of around 30 cm diameter, with a blue-green patina and inlaid with gold symbols. These are interpreted generally as a sun or full moon, a lunar crescent, and stars (including a cluster interpreted as the Pleiades).

Ancient Earth blasted by asteroids

by 5ocietyx

‘Between three and four billion years ago, changes in an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter hurled a devastating barrage of space rocks at our planet.

Astronomers are only now beginning to understand the scale of the bombardment – analysing the impacts from tiny ‘spherules’ preserved in rocks today.

Some of the asteroids were bigger than the 9-mile rock that wiped out the dinosaurs – but the 700-million-year barrage may have delivered chemicals crucial to the beginnings of life on our planet.’
