How did the Star of David’s Two Triangles become the Symbols for the Four Elements?

The Greeks proposed the existence of five basic elements. Of these, four were the physical elements – Fire, Air, Water and Earth – of which the entire world is composed. Alchemists eventually associated four triangular symbols to represent these elements.

  1. The last one, Symbole du Neutre.. I understand the translation, but what does the symbol actually mean? I can’t find any information.

  2. ummm u have it backwards …the star of david was taken FROM the symbol showing the combination of the elements. the 6 pointed star was a pagan symbol first. why does everyone think their religion was first lmao
