New Ingress Glyphs!

Additional glyphs were added in January 2017, which can be found here.

New glyph sequences have appeared in the scanner! They are using known glyphs, however not previously seen before in glyph sequences.

It looks like the story line may be advancing with some changes. Due to the mention of the N’Zeer and BEGIN, plus the concepts of abandoning the past and finding our DESTINATION to LEGACY, WE can hope that means some new changes are coming, perhaps to coincide with the 4th anniversary in just a few weeks?

Join me as I take a look at the new glyphs, or jump to the bottom to see all of the new sequences.

Breakdown:

 

ABANDON

We can see here that ABANDON is the converse of RESTRAINT. This is an interesting distinction, as one definition of abandon is to yield without restraint or moderation; give (oneself) over to natural impulses, usually without self-control. Therefore if you have restraint, you are likely not to abandon.

abandon
BEGIN

BEGIN resembles an upside-down HAVE, which makes sense as you must begin before you can have, and once you have you’ve already begun.

begin
DESTINATION

Right off the bat we can see that it’s the opposite of DISTANCE/OUTSIDE, and an incomplete version of DISCOVER.  It’s also the same shape as PATH, however shifted to down and to the right.

PATH and DESTINATION make the most sense to be similar since you must have taken some path in order to get to your destination, and shifting it towards the right implies that the destination does come after (or at the end of) the path.

destination
LEGACY

Glyph Autopsy has already done a fantastic breakdown of the very interesting LEGACY, which includes IGNORE, OLD, PAST, FORGET, NEW, FUTURE, and also transposed IMPROVE, DETERIORATE and DIE.

legacy
N’ZEER

Perhaps the most important addition to the new glyphs in the scanner is N’ZEER – the mysterious other group of mystical beings which serve as a counterpoint to the infamous SHAPERS.

Notice the inclusion of DANGER and CLEAR, plus of course how it looks like a spear or a weapon.

Refer to Glyph Autopsy for more information.

nzeer
KNOWLEDGE

As we continue our journey through the looking glass, we learn more about what goes on behind the curtain and our knowledge expands. Will it be the Shapers or the N’Zeer that are ultimately our salvation (or destruction)?

This glyph is perhaps most unlike any other, however it does contain LESS and is similar to another glyph that is not in the scanner: I/ME/SELF.

Refer to Glyph Autopsy for more information.

knowledge
PERSPECTIVE

Another very important concept, especially when considering the dichotomy between the N’Zeer and Shapers camps of thought, PERSPECTIVE gives us the ability to objectively look at both sides.  This is reflected by the bilateral symmetry of the sequence.

We can also see DETERIORATE and HARM, and an almost unfolded version of N’ZEER.

perspective
US (we)

This particular glyph has shown up prevalently in the new sequences, forcing us to think about the inclusiveness of who we are as agents.

US is an incomplete version of I/ME/SELF, or, put another way, you cannot be yourSELF without considering and including yourself as a group (or… faction).
