    So, it's in the painting The Ambassadors, by Hans Holbein… And I think it stems from even earlier knot-work designs… BUT the 'S' phenomena as we know it (drawn in schools since our parents, parents, parents..) seems to be a recent one. I really wonder if LEMMiNO might be right. This is the first video I've seen of his. I think he might have cracked the code.

    i and the father are one, s is the nineteenth number which is one and nine
    together and i is the ninth letter. the universal S shows you all come from God.

    Wouldn't be surprised if this symbol dated back to rome. While it isn't the ONLY WAY, Rome would've been the one place for this symbol to have originated and spread as far as it did. The Sator Square too, Just a few weeks ago I read an article about ancient roman graffiti and the square was there, but it had Roma-Amor as the focus

    I'm not trying to make a joke, just tryna share what I knew
    Back in my school when I was like 9-10 years old, people called it the "Volcom S"

    The reality is probably that it's a simple geometric shape and multiple people in multiple generations imagined and drew it independently from any outside influence.

    Why didn't you plot the locations in a way that correlated with the date? For example, map out all the references to people that drew it in the 40s, then the 50s, then the 60s, etc. That way, you have a geographical timeline showing how the symbol moved over time. If you go back far enough, you should be able to see roughly where the symbol originated.

    that symbol was drawn on almost every clipboard at my Elementary school. the first time I remember seeing it was I think 1st grade 2013 – 2014. in WA USA

    Now a days if you are wondering if a person you are talking to is too young draw the 6 line base and ask them to finish it. Haven’t seen them around since the late 90s early 2000s

    I remember drawing it on sides of notebooks, but mostly those with grid, not lines. I started school in 2002 and haven't used internet until few years later. I thought it was a fun thing to do while drawing on the grid using just straight lines, I can't remember if people used any specific name for this S.

    I remember making a "book" with one hundred variations of this 'S'. I literally added fire to one and made a mane for another one. I had way too much time in elementary school.

    Ahh yes, the magical S. My ancestors who nomadically roamed North America for hundreds and thousands of year picked the wonderful S in rock. Clearly it stood for small dick gang

    I remember the older students teaching it to me when I was in elementary school, and one time when I was drawing it a teacher saw me and told me to stop because it was a gang symbol lol. So that's what I always thought it was 😂

    A fellow kid in elementary school showed me this. He didn't have a name for it and didn't tell me where he learned it. It was back in somewhere around 93-95 in Bakersfield California. I just assumed it was a gang thing.
    I later saw it again in high school in the early 2000's in a small town with a population of about 2000 people in the state of Illinois.

    2 video ideas if you care at all:
    1. The Petscop series
    2. The disappearance of the Roanoke colony

    Both are interesting and i think would make a very captivating video.
