    I'm preparing a proposal for the staurogram, an early Christian symbol based on a
    combination of the Greek letters tau-rho, referencing the crucifixion, which precedes the
    better known and already encoded chi-rho monogram for Christ. I've had a request for this
    from Biblical scholars dealing with early Christian texts in which it occurs.

    We say our understanding measures how things are,
    and likewise our perception, since that is how we
    find our way around, but in fact these do not measure.
    They are measured.   -- Aristotle, Metaphysics
