Dev, the words I wrote inside the seal I did not place in any particular order.

When I used “Google Translate” to translate the Latin words representing Fire, Earth, Air and Water
back into English it gave other possible translations for the particular word.

What you see is what was given...it makes one realise how misinterpreted ancient text can be.

At least we can be sure Aqua is water ;) however, I'm sure some will disagree \o/

Peculiar how the words decreased in number in the same order I wrote the words...wyrd :)

Ah ok... Internet translators are always lacking in perfection I think. Why can't they create one proper? But you are right... KJV is a good example of fucked up translations.

While writing a post in the thread Poetry (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?2194-Poetry&p=19494#post19494) I noticed a connection between Yeats' Gyre and The Seal of Soloman.

The Gyre

Might be worth a look.

BTW what is KJV?
