Don't say you haven't noticed them: Everything DE3-related has had these little gold equilateral triangles sprinkled everywhere, right down to the A in "Human". It's appeared in the pictures, and it's appeared in the trailers, unfolding in a strange sort of pattern. Look up to the title graphic on this forum, for a good example.

This kind of recurring symbol has to be more than a snappy visual motif, I'm sure of it. The closest thing I've seen to this was Assassin's Creed's "DNA" thing, and that obviously had huge relevance to the game. When they've gone so far as to put it in the subtitle, I have to think that it has some symbolism relevant to the plot.

So, this thread is asking: Does anyone know of any symbolism that has ever been given to small, equilateral triangles, in the history of man? Any ideas on what these things might mean? The best bet would be that they had something to do with the main themes, transhumanism, augmentation...

Any ideas?

Yeah and it has been mentioned before. The most obvious references would be the Greek letter Delta, which has several interesting meanings http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_%28letter%29 and the omnipresent pyramids, that are connected with very many conspiracy theories.

DNA is based on triplets of base pairs?

It's obviously based on the all-seeing-eye of the Illuminati.

You mods are in on it, aren't you. Aren't you! :poke: http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/1523/29825730.gif

BTW, I wouldn't look too deep into the significance of the delta... I think it's really just that, delta change -> transformation. And the strains of yellow triangles? Just pretty imagery, providing the production with a visual signature.

I doubt it, but I LOVED this transition shot... It makes me wonder about Adam's allegiances... :whistle:

Hey, come to think of it, Adam shares his first name with a certain Mr. Weishaupt... [/tinfoilhat]

It is the symbol of the Greek inventor and architect Daedalus

They picked a triangle because its Deus Ex 3. Obviously in DX 4 we'll be seeing a lot of squares. :D

From Wikipedia:
"The American Dental Association cites it (together with omicron for "odont") as the symbol of dentistry."

Clearly, the Illuminati are bent on controlling pearly white smiles afforded by good dental hygiene. Didn't anyone else notice the distinct lack of smiling in the trailer? There's your answer.

Unless the Illuminati themselves are editing wikipedia, and that's merely a red herring to throw us off the scent of another, deeper mystery... I think you've probably hit the nail on the head right there. Well done, team!
