What are the considerations for the visual symbology we choose for the electrino and positrino in NPQG?
- Easy to understand, intuitive.
- Indication of oppositeness.
- A minus and plus symbol in some representations.
I imagine electrinos and positrinos as shiny polished silver metal spheres. I visualize Tron and virtual 3D pinball. However, silver spheres wouldn’t indicate oppositeness. So that won’t work.
The classic black and white is an obvious option. They are equal and opposite in one sense: the presence of all visible light frequencies and the absence of all visible light frequencies. That is somewhat anthropocentric though because the interpretation would be based upon visible light. Of course, we are presently teaching humans with vision. So black and white is a good option and we’ll go forward with that symbology in our visualizations. Here are the first representations. The use of minus and plus signs and/or labels are optional and depend on the needs of the illustration.
We need to acknowledge that there are vast numbers of prior uses for black and white symbols, even in pairs, circles or spheres, and also in equal and opposite. Those haven’t consciously influenced this thought process, but some may undoubtedly surface in the future as an ecosystem of religion, myth, and symbology springs up around NPQG. Hopefully the healthier uses of symbology will prevail.
