I have a theory based on my personal experience that the distance between total ignorance and knowing enough to impress others is three months. Yesterday I got another proof for its validity when Humus Sapiens, one of the editors of the Wikipedia-article about Star of David wrote to me:
Thanks for your suggestion. I made an attempt to separate Star of David and hexagram, could you please double-check.
I double-checked and it looks just fine. The suggestion Humus sapiens refers to is:
To the editor of this page,
IMHO the Star of David is a Jewish symbol and there are many other sorts of hexagrams in other cultures that do not belong to the main page.
I suggest moving paragraphs that deal with the following subjects to the article about the Hexagram: Bronze Age hexagrams; Iron Age hexagrams; Arabs' and Muslims' hexagrams; Christian hexagrams; Eastern Religions hexagrams; Alchemy hexagrams; Witchcraft, Occultism hexagrams; Astrology hexagrams; Estoiles; Mullets (or molets) ;Chinese checkers ; Shatkona (Yantra), Mandala, Indian hexagrams; Snowflakes ; Scientific ; Raelism ; Non Jewish heraldry and flags; Theosophy; Zion Christian Church ; Latter-day Saints (Mormons); Buddhism Hinduism and Jainism.
As I mentioned I have a theory based on my personal experience that the distance between total ignorance and knowing-enough-to-impress others is three months. Only I know that my small collection of Stars of David on this blog is just the beginning of a long journey. In order to really know what I'm talking about the time frame is measured in years, not in months…
