In Response To: Re: Decoding Installation Identifications (Gluebben)

: LOL I was cranking that out at 0100, last night and getting tired. To say
: nothing of my need to be in the office early tonight. I'll try to clean it
: up a little more tonight and include some of my other thoughts.

Very interesting stuff. Nice work.

There are, however, a couple of questions that arise with this theory.

Why would the symbol for Delta Halo, Installation 05, appear on Installation 04, "original" Halo?

See here:

Also, why would the symbol for the Ark be on Installation 04?

See the same page, screenshot "Room 3".

Similarly, why would the symbol for Installation 03 appear in multiplayer for the “original” Halo?

See the same page, screen shot "Either end of Longest and Blood Gulch".

We know that words (and symbols) that make up a language only have meaning in the context of other words. For example, the word "the" only has a meaning in relation to another word. By itself, it's meaningless.

I think the key to unlocking the meaning of these symbols is to establish contextual relationships, both between the symbols themselves and their environment.

The first step is documenting where all of the symbols occur in Halo 1 and Halo 2. From there, we might be able to establish more meaning.
