Why are symbols so important in cultures around the world? It is not for what they are but for where they point. It is incredible how reliant humans are on symbols, which are deeply embedded in every aspect of civilization. 

Words are symbols--representations of ideas or things. They can show the thing without being the thing in themselves.

However, symbols without an interpreter are useless.
