A thought about the "STAR"...

So I've been thinking about this for a while and finally decided to post this to see what kind of reactions I get from this hypothesis.

Mercedes and everyone else has always refered to the symbol as a star...

I really don't think its a star at all, I think it's actuallly the top view looking down on a PYRAMID with the sides removed leaving just the lines. I even think the old syle display even depicts this even more obviously...

I mean the pyramid does serve multiple symbolic, physical/metaphysical properties that are important on many defferent levels and dimensions. Those of you who know about the Platonic Solids and other sacred geometrical shapes know what I'm talking about.

Feel free to chime and add your own thoughts...

Generally I don't think I'd try to find a reason to dispute what the manufacturer says it is (after all, they designed the thing throughout it's various iterations, they've always referred to it as the star or the three-pointed star, and it is their brand/marketing logo) ... but yours is an interesting take and, this being the land of the free and all, you're free to interpret it any way you wish.

Take care and enjoy the ride,

Funny.... I just figured he was stoned. I remember finding profound messages in patterns in the old popcorn ceilings during my perma-stoned years.
