chess and symbols. Introduction
Maybe we require to Robert Langdon (Da Vinci Code main character) to help us to resolve the symbols and chess quest.
Efectivelly, enter in symbols requiring long study and big pacience, because it are in a distinct thought category that we use dailly.
Symbols are in all activities of human culture: science, religions, art.... but see it require experience and knowledge, they are a complete new language, that we forgot a long time ago.
Ancient cultures knew symbols unlike us, but in all times exist people that study it, there are an universal language, just as the dreams are in the same oniric language.
Sacred Books like Bible, Coran, Baghavad Gita, and Popol Vuh (Mayan book) are a symbolic books too; there are two ways to read it, literal and symbolic. Of course, only few people know the keys to understand the second way.
Plato, da Vinci, Carl Jung, Mircea Eliade, Johann Ghoethe are a few and big symbolic thinkers, there are much more, the list is big.
I want to discover the realtions between Chess and Symbols, but I dont have the response yet, sometimes I discover a little new hint, and maybe one day I found the big question, which is the connection between symbols and chess.
