Actually, i like that symbol.
The cross is equalateral and symbolises balance and wholeness. The staff and snake symbolise wisdom. Also of course, Asklepios, "the wounded healer" who is depicted with a snake coiled around his arm.
The staff is vertical and is symbolic of the masculine and consciousness and the highest spiritual values.
That is an EXTREMELY powerful symbol.
What a shame it's in the hands of a bunch of materialist c___s. Excuse my French but that is exactly what they are...barring the new breed coming through.
I remember my first inkling that Doctors were businessman first when I worked as a theater orderly during Uni...as soon as the patient was out cold, all they EVER discussed were their share portfolio's and i'm not exaggerating for effect.
