By Jamie, aged 35: Me again. Why were these colors chosen, and not others?
David, our author, explains: The colors of the Snails and their respective Bravyans are loosely based on the colors determined for the Five Elements: earth, water, fire, air and space, in Tibetan mythology – the very same five colors we see on the Tibetan prayer flags that decorate paths and passes in high, Holy mountains. We use the very same color scheme, but with some changes in their attributed meaning. It is exciting that this wisdom was conceived and already used for psychological purposes in these ancient times.
