    This would bring you into a position of "observation without intervention". In the end this would mean

    1) You actually are completly outside of the observed system.

    2) The model of Stages of Faith needs refinemend.

    3) You actually are represented but you don't feel it.

    That one is my favourite among the examples, but because it makes explicit some things that the other examples probably don't (i.e, the Ying Yang symbol mostly shows a balance and an equivalence... the Vajra is already divided in 3 parts with an explicit middle and takes things a bit further).

    Somehow as if it was symbolizing more phrases of the Emerald Tablet... i.e, this whole part:

    "That which is below is like that which is above
    and that which is above is like that is below
    to do the miracles of one only thing
    And as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one:
    so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation."

    Of course, any symbol can potentially show such thing and even more, but I mean that it is showing it in a very explicit way.
