The Suncross
Adam Wojtanek

What is a Sun-cross? A Sun-cross is a cross-centered inside a circle or wheel. The English word "cross" was probably derived from the Old Irish word "cros" or the Old Norse word "kros". Whichever way it was, the word cross was preceded by the Sumerian word "garza", which means staff or scepter of a Sun god or a king. It was believed that kings embodied god on Earth, in ancient times. And like a king (or queen) in a kingdom, the Sun rules over all parts of our solar system and dictates the length of the day, the seasons of the year, the vegetation cycles, etc. Hence, the Sun-cross represents the movement of the Sun across the sky from the east to the west, and from the north to the south during the winter and summer seasons on our planet. Therefore, a cross in a circle is also an astrological symbol for planet Earth.

The cross has always been associated with Mother Earth, and how we perceive the Universe from our planet. In 1610, Galileo was the first man to point a telescope at the Milky Way and discovered that the Milky Way was made of countless stars. But not until Edwin Hubble's discovery in 1923 did we know that there are millions of other galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Thus, our understanding of the Universe expanded far beyond that of ancient man or of those who lived in the early 20th century. Yet, the truth remains the same. We are products of our planet and the highest-developed lifeforms on the planet.

The cross in a wheel is one of the most ancient, if not the most ancient symbols known to man found across the planet. The Sun-cross also has a long tradition in spiritual healing, yoga, divination, ancient sciences, and for example, in basic designs of Buddhist Mandalas, Hindu Yantras, and American Indian designs, just to name a few. It was a very important symbol for those who followed the movement of the Sun across the sky, as well as for those who followed the movement of the Moon across the sky. Hence, its universal use could represent unity in diversity, something there has always been a deficit of.

Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. 
What we have called matter is energy, 
whose vibration has been so lowered 
as to be perceptible to the senses. 
There is no matter.
