The Revelator notwithstanding, didn't see symbols, yet fairly realities; even a logo may be real provided that anything of the truth for which it stands shines via. It needs to, in a true means, be inwardly exact with what it intends, the essence from which it stems. hence it needs to come up from a similar truth; in a different way it includes no that means. the photographs of the minerals within the Apocalypse are only as a lot truth because the minerals are in the world. nor is crucial; either are easily manifestations of anything crucial. consequently, either are really apocalyptic—the mineral we carry in our hand and the picture we carry in our brain. They show themselves collectively.
