Reply to NHolmes's Post: Ultimately, I believe the symbol I submitted for query will have some philosophical basis with the yin and yang; however, it is a completely different symbol. To better describe the symbol: think of the number 8 vertically, and then the number 8, again, placed horizontally across the center of the other...two infinity symbols together inside a circle. For the time being, my 20 dollars is still up for grabs.

What is the meaning and history of the ancient chinese symbol that can best be described as two infinity symbols intertwined, inside a circle? Where can I find a book and/or web address about this symbol?

This is the closest thing I could find to what you describe in the extensive web site of symbols.com. There you will find about a thousand symbols presented graphically, along with a description of their origin and/or meaning.


The symbol above is the for the four evangelists in Gnostic church architecture. More commonly it is shown as


It was also used by Dr. Timothy Leary, the late Harvard professor and LSD experimenter, who promoted it as as a symbol for the League for Spiritual Discovery.


Even if this is not the answer you seek, I think you will enjoy browsing the more than 25 pages of symbols that begin at http://www.symbols.com/encyclopedia/02/index.html


Click "next" after viewing each page and you will be presented with many more. Also visit the alphabetical index by description at


SYMBOLS.com: Word Index: C (for C) and all the other letters. (look under "Chinese", in particular). I, along with the others helping out here, have been unable to find the symbol you describe among Chinese symbols or characters. My daughter-in-law is from mainland China and has a college education. She assures me that she has never seen a Chinese symbol similar to what you describe.


Other mystics and New-Age experts have joined in the search. This is not my field of expertise; I was just trying to help, using online search tools and my Chinese inlaws. I hope you find what you are looking for.

has a 'new age' double infinity symbol such as you describe - however its not Chinese though it may have a basis in the yin yang symbol and the infinity symbol.
found this here

"BALANCING YOUR CHAKRAS WITH THE DOUBLE INFINITY SYMBOL
by Alijandra

Greetings in the Light and Love of Source! The following is a wonderful technique for aligning your chakras with your over soul's energy.

The double infinity symbol appears as a horizontally laid figure eight, intersected by a vertically positioned figure eight. It is the emblem for the 11th dimension (The dimension where many over souls reside). The dimension was created by a triad of color rays: the violet, rose and clear. In the ancient mystery schools, it was recognized that certain symbols existed for creating doorways or "keys to understanding". These allow one to work with the energies coming from the other places or dimensions. The purpose is to connect in a conscious manner to your Over soul; to embrace the state of oneness, knowledge, and empowerment that connection provides.

• Ground and protect yourself.
• Balance your chakras by turning them 13 times in each direction.(For the positions, functions and colors of the chakras, see my website or my book, "Healing with the Rainbow Rays")
• Then, psychically, place the double infinity sign in each chakra, starting at the base.
• Within your mind's eye, trace with energy the double infinity symbol one revolution horizontally along the figure eight, then one revolution vertically. Do this 11 times for each chakra. To make it really intense, you could "run" the violet, rose and clear rays as the tracing colors along the vertical and horizontal figure eights of the double infinity symbol.
• Re-ground.
Back to T of C. "
I also came across references linking a double infinity symbol to feng shui
and a double infinity link to a 4 petal or leaf lotus for Bhuddism

Greetings:


oops, sorry, I didn't notice your second post concerning the double infinity - It is part of the 18 essences. It is for acknowledging the balance of Ego and Soul, Matter and Spirit, as they are expressed within the physical form. It is a ball of energy that seeks and cleans energetic blockages and congestion throughout the whole of you.


It deals with Chakras - Chakra is a Hindu term.


Bright Blessings.


Peace, Love & Happiness,

The double infinity symbol forms a four petaled lotus of energies representing the second aspect and the Divine circulatory flow.

"the color image of the Peace Wheel (eight sectors of human endeavor and activity surrounding the earth surmounted by the double infinity symbol, standing for the building of cultures of peace) with a living white rose bush placed in its center."
http://www.gresham.ac.uk/event.asp?PageId=39&EventId=259
"If you look again up to a few hundred years ago, to Blaise Pascal, he focuses attention very much on what he called the double infinity, this phrase that was used at the time, the idea that there is a double manifestation of infinite potentially in the world around us. On the one hand, the potentially infinite universe of stars and galaxies, as we would now call them, but on the other hand, what Pascal regarded as much more subversive potentially, the infinitely small, because if the world was infinitely divisible, then within your hand in front of you, there was a manifestation of something which was physically infinite."

"the discovery of double infinity (cosmic and psychical). "

http://www.midcoast.com/~gillespi/field.htm
"Ol' man thought is the infinity king of all nature, and the universe. The infinite eternal mind of the universe requires a scientific definition of infinity. The spirit of infinity knows infinity is the spirit of the universe. This same infinity requires all to be one. Practical infinity is based on the number of subatomic bits it would take to fill the universe. Infinite electromagnetism holds the key to the infinity paradox. The infinite singularity resides in the center of infinity. Even infinity requires a center – the infinite center. The infinite relativity theory reveals the infinite void, and the womb of infinity exhibits a completed infinity, comprising the double infinity of all things. Bi-directional infinity includes the negative infinity of the complex plane. Infinity itself is the superior being –– we can never comprehend it. "
