The two neon heads in a state of perpetual absorption and interrelationship generate the Caduceus symbol. Originally representative of the messenger of the Earth Mother some 6000 years ago, the Caduceus has since become a sign of friendship, peace and negotiation and symbol for alchemy and transformative powers.

More recently Clendenon discovered a centuries-old library in India where he found diagrams of mercury vortex engines, the Caduceus he believed was an ancient symbol of electromagnetic flight and cosmic energy.
