LOGOS? SUPERDIAGRAM? OMNIUM? ANTONIUS WHEEL?
To me this drawing is a kind of Eureka.
Let's take a closer look at this drawing.

Intriguingly, in the lengthy dictionaries of symbols throughout human civilization, until today, there did not appear a symbol or ideogram, which combined the ancient sign of a CIRCLE, a FOCAL POINT, a CROSS and a SPIRAL. (Therefore, I was able to obtain adequate protection in the patent office.)
I keep finding these elements, but in different, simpler configurations:
Years later, I came across a somewhat similar figure:
Its author was Jacob Bernoulli (1654-1705), a mathematician from Basel. It was he who coined the term “logarithmic spiral.” He also called it Mirabilis. Fascinated by the wonderful properties of the spiral he studied, he directed that his tombestone should be engraved with the logarithmic spiral and the inscription:
„Eadem mutata resurgo (semperdem)” (I shall arise the same, though changed, again and again).
Under mysterious circumstances, as if by magic, another spiral has appeared on his tombstone – the spiral of Archimedes. Moreover, because the meaning of his maxim was contrary to religious dogma (after all, there is only one Last Judgement and there is no Reincarnation) – someone softened his message by shortening it to the first three words.
In this way, they erased his brave message about the cyclical nature of the world and existence.
I have copied my ideogram very carefully and it has never been returned to my old trunk of relics. On the contrary – it has found a place of honor on my desk, in my computer, on the walls of my studio, and finally in my literature and art. I gave it different names: THE ANTONIUS CODE, THE ANTONIUS WHEEL, THE SUPERCOSMOGRAM and THE OMNIUM.
As I already mentioned, a spiral is an important element of my Supercosmogram. And if a spiral, so – as human intuition and nature suggest – it must be a LOGARITMIC SPIRAL, and even similar to the so-called Spiral of the Golden Section*.
* The Golden Section is also known as the Golden Mean, Golden Ratio and Divine Proportion. It is a ratio or proportion defined by the number Phi ! = 1.618033988749895...). Golden Section has many unique, intriguing relationships and properties found in nature, music, art and mathematics.
A spiral drawn within the Supercosmogram, in contrast with the old, static symbols, introduced explicit dynamics. And what’s interesting – it also divided the diagram, as if it pointed to the distribution of the main ingredients and their proportions in our universe.
At today’s level of knowledge, we call it Matter of the Visible World (Ordinary Matter) – (on the spiral line), Dark Matter (MATREX) and Dark Energy (PATREX).
Here are some well-known standard static, non-concentric pie charts showing the Universe content and percent composition:
Here is my own CONCENTRIC concept about the Universe, its content and precentage:
CONCENTRIC CYCLIC COSMOLOGY
As we can see by the illustration above, the Supercosmogram clearly shows that our local universe develops within a spiral tunnel, between two clashing, mysterious elements – dark matter and dark energy. Here is a place for time and space, light, atoms, molecules, stars, our Earth, the galaxies and all the civilizations of cosmic beings.
It is helpful to recall, at this point, the famous drawing made by Profesor John A. Wheeler, the physicist, who introduced the concept of black holes to cosmology. Here`s how he aptly presents the self-conscius U, namely the Universe.
And at this point, we’ll try to carefully place a hypothetical indicator of our location, at this point in time, on our flat spiral! It’s important to remember, however, that we are still dealing with a flat symbol.
In my novel THE OMNIUM (on your right) there is a scene where a little boy Adam, the main character of the novel, listens to an unusual lecture on Universe content and proportions.
