Wouldn't it be a real kicker if it originated by Ethiopian Jews?!
Anyway, it stands for "Life's Journey" [life being the collective force of
all life]. The lines designate the peculiarity of arriving, then moving
out of, conscious existance from one dimension to another. The conscious
existance occurring at the intersection of the two crossed lines. One line
is the path of one's self, while the other designates the path of all
other life. Neither can be designated to be one or the other, because they
are inter-dependent on one another for their purpose and continuation. Any
single disharmony, therefore, has an effect on all other life. The goal of
this symbol was to bring about this type of understanding to bring about
cooperation among the peples of that day and time. It's actual date of
inception is quite ancient, but just how ancient has not been proven yet.
