Above all, this is true with regard to artificially created symbols that basically have an arbitrarily and subjectively selected form of manifestation. The same sign, the same word, or the same sentence can be related to very different functions, deities, and energies in various esoteric traditions. The more strongly a symbol’s appearance reminds us of structures that can be observed in the physical world, the more narrowly it is basically defined in the range of its possible effects.
