Oreo- Milks favorite cookie...mine too :D

I realized this a couple of years ago....when I began to see alchemical symbols everywhere.
When I related the name with the emblem stamped on them...it struck me like a freight- train... regardless of whether it was intended from the beginning or not...ultimately perhaps the divine had a hand in it, which interests me more.

Now the history seems a little shady, and there seems to be several different ideas out there, but it is obvious that the name oreo is obtained from the base latin word for gold. Other sources say from the greek oros meaning mountain or hill as the biscuit was originally mound shaped which may be truer yet.

As for the sign on the cookie bearing the original Nabisco trademark we here know that this sign bears alchemical significance.

According to wikipedia:

The Lorraine cross was carried to the Crusades by the original Knights Templar, granted to them for their use by the Patriarch of Jerusalem.

Hermetic alchemists of the Renaissance used the emblem as a symbol of earth and spirit by combining the square earth cross with the cross of Christ. When drawn symmetrically, it symbolised the hermetic maxim, "As above, so below".

Nabisco (National Biscuit Company) logo it has been claimed in company promotional material to be
an early European symbol for quality; it may be derived from a medieval Italian printer's mark that
represented "the triumph of the moral and good over the evil and worldly."

Orios are magnets, but not for the SM. They attract obese people. :)

Pun Intended! Sorry; couldn't resist.

Out of curiosity, I've counted the outter "dots" that form the wider circle expecting to find 72... they were 96.

when the lorraine cross surmounts the lemniscate it symbolises brimstone/sulfur.
I've never noticed it above a circle. Interesting
