    The halo is depicted in much of spiritual imagery. It is my belief it represents divine consciousness. Would you agree with my assessment. or do you have a better explanation?

    In typical Christian art it represents holiness or sainthood.

    Its a secret. I had to figure it out for myself, and I don't see why I should explain it for free. Nyah.

    Anyways, supposedly it was stolen from the pagans. That's what people tend to say. They're only partly right. Its not stolen. Also its a very deep symbol, kind of interesting. Wish I could explain it to you, but I'm not that nice.

    I guess I will always be unfulfilled and die not knowing the secret. :)

    I would say it represents the Holiness of the individual, and less divine consciousness IMO. The Halo also used to represent a divinely awakened person, if that correlates to divine consciousness, idk.
