The origin of the infinity symbol
The infinite has been pondered since the time of Greek philosopher Archimedes and has played a pivotal role in the conception of many subjects in science and mathematics – and now, in the expression of everlasting emotion. The sideways figure eights’ roots are deeply embedded in its ancient interpretation as the symbol of perfection, duality and empowerment. Throughout the ages this symbol has stood the test of time and has represented a wide array of concepts and ideas. From ancient Indian rituals where the symbol interpreted perfection and equilibrium between the male and female gender straight through to numerous mystical Celtic knot designs that also have no beginning or end. In fact, the Celtic knot designs draw more resemblance to the double infinity symbol and stands as a representation for double absoluteness – as does our Infinity Double Ring.
The infinity was originally known as the Lemniscate, meaning ‘ribbon’, by ancient Greek mathematicians and philosophers. The idea derived from The Ouroboros, an archaic symbol depicting a serpent biting its own tail, said to interpret the infinite immortality, continuity, self-fertilisation and eternal return. In modern times, the infinity symbol that we have become accustomed to was first discovered by English mathematician John Wallis, in 1655. It was conceptualised as an explanation of mathematics and physics, referring to a quantity with no bound or resolution – an amount larger than any number. The word is derived from the Latin infinitas meaning ‘unboundedness’.
Scientologists also refer to the infinity symbol as the eighth dynamic, this being understood as the desire for eternal and infinite existence. The eighth dynamic is also frequently referred to as ‘the supreme being’ or ‘creator’ – welcoming the wholeness and endless capacity of all as they do not believe in reincarnation, but in past lives. The evolution of this symbol has led to the modern interpretation as being the advocate for endless and enduring love and devotion.
