The Semi-Sentients of Sol-3
Excerpt from the works of Chral Drawan, astrozoologist
Thoughts on Symmetry
Ever since the inhabitants of Sol-3 began to worship their deities in architectural structures, they used symmetry to express their faith and wonder. Before they found scientific reason, they had no other means to explain their natural world than through a pantheon of many deities.
With temples, ziggurats, pyramids, cathedrals, the sun spires on their moon, and many more, they always used the imitation of symmetries found in nature to achieve their goals.
The gothic rosette element (Fig-1), is an example for this. Five and three. These are holy numbers for many of their cultures. They are also symmetries found in flowers, in proteins (Fig-2), and many other structures.
Their music and art, religion and science are one: driven to explore their universe and its beauty. And they are declaring, “We are here!”
If only they hadn’t invented politics.
