    That is really interesting. I never would have thought that the triangle could bring about negative connotations when using it as a graphic for business. Definitely something to keep in mind.

    Three lines show the pinpoints of three at the start and end of each, and three of its own objects are just short of one inside it. It takes a additional triangle in it or out of it to produce the mass of a triangle.

    Still, very interesting stuff!

    I just got a triangle tattoo with butterflies and blowing wind. Reminded me of when Jesus was killed on the cross and the aftermath of how beautiful it was with the sunset. It was heartbreaking though.
