the glyph recognises that the Sun is the source of all life and our vital life force.
The Sun, the centre of our solar system and our closest star, is a medium-sized, medium-hot star in the middle of its life (some 4.6 billion years old). Our Sun is tiny compared to other stars in the universe. The Sun is a giant nuclear furnace of hydrogen fusing with helium, constantly releasing huge amounts of energy.
The Sun’s magnetic field concentrates energy into sunspots and solar winds that send negatively charged electrons and positively charged protons into the solar system.
The Sun is 99.99 percent of the mass of the entire solar system, and is the reflector of all light in the solar system.
