The heart shape ♥ is an ideograph used to express the idea of the "heart" in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the center of emotion, including affection and love, especially romantic love. The "wounded heart" indicating lovesickness came to be depicted as a heart symbol pierced with a Cupid's arrow , or heart symbol "broken" in two or more pieces.

The combination of the heart shape and its use within the heart metaphor developed at the end of the Middle Ages, although the shape has been used in many ancient epigraphy monuments and texts. With possible early examples or direct predecessors in the 13th to 14th century, the familiar symbol of the heart representing love developed in the 15th century, and became popular in Europe during the 16th. Before the 14th century, the heart shape was not associated with the meaning of the heart metaphor. - Wiki

The reason I chose to start this thread was an abundance of very old maps done in a shape resembling this "heart" symbol.


Question: what could other meanings of this symbol be?

If you see it on some of the older etchings, please add your findings to this thread.

OK, so I learned both these things in college. It will probably say more about the value of academia than answer our questions.

From foundations of western literate - the heart shape is love because it represents an ass, hence love making. For humans that walk upright also the bust. Red and round is good, because it means young and fertile.
(knowing that, now go check out the sacred heart)
We probably give soldiers injured in battle the purple heart because they have been maimed and have given up some sexual attractiveness.

For your maps, what you got there are some projections. Projections are needed when you try to display 3 dimensional globe on 2 dimentional paper. Specifically Werner and Bonne (I had to google the names) both from around i500. Most accurate at the north pole and more distorted as you move away. Biggest take away here is they thought the earth was a globe and knew spheral trigonometry.

Pretty interesting in 1500 Australia is part of Antarctica. That 1531 map is noted Hapgood. Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings: Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age 1966 set the foundation for questioning current history through maps. Unfortunately because of academic compartmentalization, he did not challenge history or geology and placed this worlwide civilization in the Ice age.

We do not have those constraints. There is no need for us to accept that the ice age was 12,000 years ago and today we can find evidence to conclude the last remnants of this world wide civilization was erased from history 200 years ago.

The Sacred Heart of (Jesus, Mary, etc) is an interesting reading. Unfortunately, as with just about everything religion related, the true meaning appears to be hidden behind the words telling the story. After reading the article I feel like I know less than I did before. Barbwire is an interesting detail.

Another interesting part is the connection with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

The sacred heart isn't surrounded by barbed wire; it's the crown of thorns placed on Christ's head when he was being tortured.

“The seed of the silphium plant, used in ancient times as an herbal contraceptive, has been suggested as the source of theheart symbol.” ... “The heart symbol could also be considered to depict features of the human female body, such as the female's buttocks, pubic mound, or spread vulva.”Feb 14, 2012
Possible Origins of The Heart Shape - The Hairpin
https://www.thehairpin.com/2012/02/possible-origins-of-the-heart-shape/

So Sayeth The Internet. :) There was one Wall Street Journalist who did a little research saying the heart shape was first depicted in some French painting from 1320 but she also said that early (3rd century) scholars had no idea what the heart actually looked like and imagined that it looked like a pinecone or pear. After all the bloody battles that had occurred by the 3rd century, I'm sure everyone knew what hearts actually looked like so her research was without any critical thinking of what she read.

I meant just look at the symbolism of the sacred heart. Copulation.

The heart is an ass.
Anything long and hard is phallic. Like a sword or cross.

Earth and water are female. Because women give life and get wet during the act. Blood and fertility.
Air and fire are male. Air carries the seed and men get hot. Birds and the holy spirit would be male - the seed or carrying seed.

Gush. Who comes up with stuff like that? Some of them ppl back in the day had to have some creative imagination.

And what’s up with the duck? Too many places have ducks. Also those crepuscular sun rays again.

Roman Catholic Church (RCC) commissioned many of the old paintings/art works/stained glass. Since they incorporated pagan religions into their own religion, I'd look for symbology among the pagan religions to determine their meanings.

It is primitive. It is the ancient mystery religion.

Osiris impregnating Isis with his golden phallus, begetting the sun god Horus.

I don't think it is the Christians incorporating the pagan, but pagans subverting the church.

While looking through the maps I noticed a Latin word that I didn't know how to translate properly- 'Recens'.
So I looked it up as ya do, and wondered if that word in particular is in relation to the 'new' sea level and perhaps a new order resulting therefrom? ("rise freshly, come up, begin")
recens (Latin)
Origin & history

re- + Proto-Indo-European *ken- ("new, fresh"), with a semantic development to "rise freshly, come up, begin", also seen in cognates such as Old Irish cinim ("to rise") and Old Church Slavonic начѧти (na-čęti, "to begin"), въчѧти (vŭ-čęti, "to begin").
Classical cognates include Ancient Greek καινός (kainos, "new") and Sanskrit कनीन (kanī́na, "young, youthful").

Fwiw, I'd heard the heart was a symbol representing the womb. The arrow piercing it would presumably be phallic. Fertility symbols.

FLAT EARTH DECODED
Flat Earth Decoded (Updated)

EARTH THE CENTER

First let’s start with the name for our home ~ Earth. Now if you scramble the letters around it spells Heart. This is NOT a coincidence. It is code telling us the significance of our home. Our home is the HEART of our world. Now where is the heart located in our body? In the center. So our Earth is in the Center. And we know this because we know that man is a microcosm to the macrocosm- our world. Put another way, As above, so below. As without, so within.

Map of the Arctic by Gerardus Mercator. First print 1595, this edition 1623


MICRO
And we can’t forget that the HEART, which is an anagram for EARTH, has FOUR chambers and looks an awful lot like Eden as well. Salt water flows INTO the Heart of the Earth just as blood flows into the Heart of our Bodies. If a human has experienced loss of blood and no blood is available for a transfusion, what do hospitals use instead? Salt water. As above, so below.

Are you saying that we can receive the earth's blood?

This does touch on a real world conspiracy - the lack of salt in modern diets. Personally I think the reason saline drips are the most common intravenous hospital procedure is because we eat too little of it.

Well, most will view this reply as vulgar, but I am a woman and have heard the term "heart-shaped ass" since I was in high school.

Instead of succumbing to my initial reaction of repulsion, as this realm depends on, I delved further. The heart pumps the blood of life. Without the heart, there is no life.

Without procreation, there is also no life. It is biological. A woman with broad hips is sexually attractive to a man because she has a better chance of surviving delivery of his child and can breast feed (large breasts, another feature men innateley find attractive) his child, thus propagating his seed.

Find this distasteful if you will, but there is much truth to it. The heart is a symbol of life. Mother Earth? The perceived "female" entility that gives us life? It is no coincidence that maps of her are shaped as hearts.

It's a torus. Perpetual circulation with proper maintenance.
Like rhythmic or yogic breathing as well. Or cats purring.
From The Opening of the Way by Isha Schwaller de Lubicz.
"The Heart
The nature and function of the heart cannot be understood apart from the cardiac region which provides its driving force. The sun that vitalizes the physical heart is the spiritual heart, which is the center of spiritual fire which can be stirred up and strengthened by close attention and meditation.
The spiritual heart is the seat of the Presence, the magnet of our divine Ka, and its expression is that impersonal love which alone can prevail against all the fires of passion. It forms, together with the spleen, the area which reacts to the Spiritual Consciousness. By loving concentration it can become a radiant center of indestructible life.
The physical heart is its servant, the "minister of the lord and master," as the Chinese sages call it. Its activator is "the master of the heart." This is a functional command post, and it has its meridian of energy and discoverable sensitive points just as if it were an organ.
The "master of the heart" is the agent for transmitting energy between the spiritual heart and the physical heart, and as such it is in relation both with the conscious mind and with the Automaton. It rules the heartbeat and the energy of the whole sexual region, which includes not only the sexual glands and organs but also, in this context, the kidneys.
The Chinese likewise call it "the mother of the blood," because it regulates the flow of the blood, in conjunction with the small intestine, which refreshes and nourishes the blood with its chyle.
Thanks to this activator, the physical heart is the center and governor of the whole organism. For although the lungs are activated by the air and fire that they breathe in, the heart is the center and motor of the circuit which regenerates the blood in them.
Together with its region (the stomach, spleen, and pancreas) the heart is the agent of combustion of the terrestrial food which is to become assimilable nourishment. It collects the blood, which carries the liquids provided by the kidneys and liver, and also the nourishing chyle distilled in the small intestine. But both the small intestine and the kidneys are regulated in their energic aspect by the "master of the heart."
This mutual dependence makes it understandable that the functioning of the organs can be improved through the intermediary of the heart; and conversely, the state of the heart depends on the balance of the organs serving it."
Ah, the PASSIONS.

Agreed! My (finally) saline blood rises at anything suggesting someone might misconstrue this salt comment. Mineral, esp. iodine rich unprocessed, hand-harvested sea salt, or from local inland lakes is the ticket.
A guy called Doc. Brownstein wrote a book called 'Salt your way to Health.'
"Dr. David Brownstein reveals why salt is the most misunderstood nutrient and explores the remarkable healing ability of unrefined salt, also explains how adding the right kind of salt to your diet can help a variety of conditions, including fatigue, adrenal disorders, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. SALT Your Way To Health challenges the conventional wisdom regarding salt and also suggests healthier alternatives to regular table salt."

And now, back to the heart.
By loving concentration it can become a radiant center of indestructible life.
The heart pumps the blood of life. Without the heart, there is no life.

Without procreation, there is also no life.
Both relate back to good old Al of Chemy.

The heart like you've never seen it before. That's one cheeky heart.

Heart Curve -- from Wolfram MathWorld



Cordiform: Heart-Shaped Map Projections heart shaped maps are that shape for a functional reason.
This part;
"Although the beginnings of this cordiform map projection has its origins in Ptolemy’s early works, the development of a heart shaped map projection during the renaissance era is not a coincidence. The symbology of the world as a heart was closely tied to the concept of the inner emotions affecting the physical world "

Really interesting that it started during the renaissance; the beginning of the humanist, socialist movement. Art became anti-tradition and emotionally/materialistically motivated. The masses revolted slowly but surely with muh feelin's changing the (more stoic) way things had been done.
I'm starting to think this is how collapses of civilisations often happen, through sneaky appeals to the heart after a period/periods of struggle. Luxury/materialism leads to weakness and death of god, the spirit and healthy archetypes by constant applications of emotion, and the rot and mental/physical degeneration set in.
The spirit must fight to rise again through the squalor and chaos that luxurious civilisation created, regroup and sort its collective sh*te out and return to an ultimately toughened natural order.
Alchemy, but also quantum physics; inner emotions affecting/recreating the physical world. Propaganda is precisely that- emotional control to manipulate physical reality.
This is why I suspect the 'Those Who may not be Mentioned' have their specific role to play in prompting the collapse, or intervention, or parasitic infestation of a healthy society. Growth via death and rebirth (eventually). Our lot are hard-wired to create and strive towards highest truth, or God. Theirs, not so much.

Very yin-yang-looking graphic.
