Summary Edit

Symbol of the Technocratic Union.

LogoHousesofHermes
This image is part of a series displaying a design evolution. An antecedent ("LogoHousesofHermes.png") can be seen to the left.

Speculation Edit

The original Order of Hermes design (from Ars Magica) includes three intertwined snakes, very similar to the three-sided pattern used by the modern Technocracy. Even the triangle formed by the three forked tongues is reflected in the modern "Pattern" glyph you can see in the center.

It's unknown why the two symbols are so similar, particularly when the original Order of Reason arose almost specifically to counteract Hermetic depredations. When I asked this question of Jess Heinig, he made a cryptic comment regarding the Ksirafai and House Janissary. While this association is now common knowledge, it goes the wrong way: the flow of information still goes from the Order of Reason to the Order of Hermes, not the other way around.

However, the Ksirafai, in their new position as House Janissary, have been rumored to have influenced the foundation of the New World Order. The Order was more or less founded "from scratch," since the Cabal of Pure Thought had been wiped out. Perhaps, when they helped found the New World Order, they "invented" a new symbol for the newly-forged Technocracy to rally behind. The new symbol would certainly provoke the Hermetics, but it may also have served as a beacon or warning to Janissaries within the Order of Hermes.
