About the Cover Design - SYMBOLOGY - "A melodic game inspired on the
Galactic Tones of the Mayan Calendar".

The band developed a game, entangled with the vibrations produced for the
record, and encapsulated in this magical release.
SYMBOLOGY is a cooperative board game played from the CD layout, using the
real media as playing position and a full unfolded case as playing board.
The game goal is to win time to time. All players play in team against a
single opponent, the Board.
In the Board there's a Time Matrix that has a determined velocity. Players
have to pass several challenges, these represented in the matrix, so that
they can play in the number of the 13 rounds of the Galactic Time cycle,
before time runs out.
This cycle was called by the Mayans as SPEEL WAVE, it was used to organize
time in a way each level of the cycle have a focus characteristic that
helps to center spirit in a specific purpose. To each level of time period
there where thirteen focuses such as PURPOSE, DIRECT, SERVICE, DEFINITION,
LIBERATION, COOPERATION, and as a last step of evolution, TRANSCENDENCE.
