The second challenge, served up by Betty, is a profound one. What immediately sprung to mind were two pictograms - the Universal Choking Sign (which, admittedly, could have been a reaction to the challenge) and remember when Prince became "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince" back in the 90's? It got me started on what has turned into a really challenging process......to think of a situations that needs to have a symbol to represent it and create it.

Some warn us to "Look Out!"
Some are just universal product recognition.
.......now I start to think deeper, product recognition means different things to different people....ie, great quick meal vs poor diet choice.....unlike pi that has only one meaning.....

So, I think I need to create a symbol that represents some universal truth, something non-subjective, something that can only mean one thing. It gets more difficult. Things that come to mind now....hiccups? I start to realize how few things in my experience mean the same thing to everybody else. Even scientific data can be interpreted in different ways. Maybe it will *have* to be something mathematical...
