This will give an explaination of the symbols and writings at the end of the game. There are different messages throughout the room that you can see if you use your Eagle Vision. In front of the Animus Table there are the following: Pentagram- It has many meanings but is often misinterpreted as a Satanic symbol, however what makes it interesting is that it was once used as the official seal of Jerusalum. It is also used to represent the "Five Wounds of Christ" and it used in Christian arcitecture. Yona Guni- is a Japanese island which has become famous for its sunken rock and stone structures. If they were man-made then they would be the oldest buildings presently known to man. This would also present evidence that there was once a cilivization here. The site also has squared off megalithic blocks that resemble those at Stonehenge and Easter Island Pictures- There is a picture of Oriental buildings and what appears to be a mountain and a Torii. A Torii is a traditional Japanese gate that marks the transition from the sacred to the normal world. To the left of the table: There is a triangle of letters, which when vertically read from the bottom right corner to the left reads: "they drained my soul and made it theirs i drain my body to show you where i saw it" This means that the writings you are seeing is in blood, which you will also find out when you enter the bedroom. It also means that the places being described are the locations of something, which is assumed to be the locations of the Pieces of Eden. Numbers- Below the triangle is what appears to be a barcode with the number 12212012 below it. This is actually a date: 12/21/2012 or December 21st 2012. This is the last date of the Mayan calender. The barcode is kind of smeared but it could be an ancient counting system, which becomes important when looking in the bedroom. Circles- Above the triangle are three interlocking circles. This is known as a triquetra. It has many meanings but in the Christian religion is used to signify the Holy Trinity Pictures- In the corner of the room are pictures of a monkey, bird, and a spider. These are the Nazca Lines. They are gigantic lines in the Nazca Desert drawn by an ancient culture. What makes them interesting is that they only make a discernable picture when viewed from a plane of helicopter. Since these ancient people would never have been able to see there creation, nobody actually knows how they made them On the platform with the computer things: There is a picture of what appears to be Machu Picchu. This is often refered to as the "Lost City of the Incas". If you look at it there appears to be the step like structures with the mountains in the background. This is also the city that holds an Incan astronimic clock. To the right of this drawing is what looks like some sort of temple, most likely Incan. To the right of the table: There is a square of letters which when read vertically starting in the bottom right corner reads: "artifacts sent to the skies to control all nations to make us obey a hidden crusade do not help them". This means that, in the game, the Templars have sent the Piece of Eden into space so that they can control people for their crusade. This is also implied in some of the emails that can be accessed on the computers. Above the square: The eye anclosed in a triangle is known as the Eye of Providence or All-seeing Eye. It is often interpreted to be the eye of God watching humankind. It can also be seen on the back of a US one-dolar bill; floating above an unfinished pyramid. Below the square: There is a triangle filled with eyes with a glowing apple on top. I have no idea what it means, sorry. On the patlform with the computer things: There is an Eye of Ra, which is another symbol for the Eye of Providence and what look like pyramids. They go from little to medium to big, much like the pyramids at Giza. In your bedroom: When you first look at the writings on your wall it will end the game, but if you wait you will eventually regain control Starting from the left: There are different languages on the wall that I don't understand, however there is the phrase "We are all books containing thousands of pages and within each of them lies an irreparable truth." There is also an omega sign which means "end", although no alpha; "beginning". There is also a fractle and the writing Z(n+1) = Zn^2 + C. This is called the Mandelbrot Set, which creates an aestetic fractle. It is significant because it is an infinite pattern that is always the same no matter how far you zoom in. The adjacent circles are a picture of this. The number 18.104.22.168.0 is the long form of the Incan system for 12/21/2012. The barcode in the other room also has the same meaning assuming that there are 20 lines. I couldn't tell because they were smeared. I don't know what the thing in the middle is but the number 22:13 is a reference to Revelations 22:13 which reads, "I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." There is the phrase "I've entered the abyss and never returned." There is also the writing "Quetzcoalt's hunger lies the answers." I think this is similar to Quetzalcoatl, which is an Aztech god often refered to as the feathered serpent and is connected to the planet Venus. He is also refered to as "The God of the Morning Star". His birth was also supposedly a virgin birth. It should also be mentioned that Lucifer was called "The Morning Star" I just think that this is interesting and that anyone who says Assassin's Creed doesn't have a good story line just didn't know what everything meant. It is profoundly deep and I assume the rest of the trilogy will be as well.
