…some­day. And so here’re the ones cur­rent­ly under con­sid­er­a­tion:

  • This — the cher­ry blos­som eight-sided mir­ror sym­bol of Kodokan Judo.
  • Eppur si muove — Galileo’s (prob­a­bly apoc­ryphal) rebut­tal to his forced con­fes­sion that the Earth does not move. It means “And yet it does move.”
  • Lumi­nous beings are we, not this crude mat­ter”.
