The Ginnungagap

In Norse mythology, Ginnungagap ("yawning abyss") was the vast, primordial void that existed prior to the creation of the manifest universe, corresponding (both in etymology and in meaning) to the Greek notion of Chaos...
...a magical (and creative) power-filled space.
(From Wikipedia)

Played around with polyfolding this weekend...

This is really quite amazing. There are many initial similarities to the symmetries found in glyphs of different cultures (they really do all use the same ones,) but it is much, much more complex than that.

Wow, this is interesting to hear... I have one image of this place, from the inside... never put it online, could do it if you are interested.
Do you have any reference images?

It's not quite as interesting as I made it sound. I can't quite figure out the names of any specific examples I am thinking of, but the main thing I was pointing out is all the apparent basic shapes (crosses, circles, regular geometric polygons) which you find used as or in symbols (especially sort of religious or mystical ones) and how this picture is much more complex than seeing those initial shapes is. The Norse reference made me think of things like that even more. I'm sorry if I'm still not being clear.
