Introduction to Signs & Symbols

We humans are the best creature of nature. We always have questions about everything. How we born, how we die, who was the first human, what happens after death? Do we know what is the meaning of our life and the nature around us? Over thousand of years we have created many signs and symbols to express our-self. We used these for both - questions & answers. Some of the signs & symbols are used for some very secrets aspects of life. Some are just for our every day use.

Definition

As part of nature we developed a collection of signs and symbols that expresses our life and universe. We all know many signs and symbols. But do we know about the differences between these?

Signs

A sign is straight and clear for its purpose. So the meaning of the sign is very clear and expressive. It may be an alphabet of a written or visual language. Or a road divider sign, or a company logo. In a short, signs gives us a simple meaning of something.

Symbols

A symbol is an image or sketch that gives us an idea or a secret meaning for something. For example, both sun and a male can be represented by the symbol fire. Similarly a spring flower means rebirth and new life.
