Its S17 again and there is something strange that I noticed in the video (that's blatantly obvious)(never seen it discussed in the forums before. Or has it?)

So why do the numbers morph into these symbols? And what do these symbols mean?

Well the first two symbols are the Eye of Hornus and the Omega. Eye of Hornus means "healing or protection", and Omega means "great". I'm not sure what the last symbol is, looked Egyptian, but i can't find any similarities. It could though just though translate to "protection against great destruction. Which would go with the 12/21/12.

I think the third one looks more Asian like... I think they in someway represent Juno, Minerva and Tinia.

The first 2 Symbols were used by Clay in his Glyphs. The Eye of Horus is a Symbol of Protection, as stated. The Omega is reference to Revelation 22:13 in the Bible "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last"

The last one; however, was not used by clay, but it looks to be Chinese or Japanese..I`m not sure. I may have a look

The second one cannot be the Omega symbol because it has a dot in the center.

Can't deny that logic but...............
Seriously, the omega symbol doesn't have a dot in the center. This must represent something else.

Thanks for the help M. Very appreciated. Can someone solve the third symbol? Google goggles fails to identify it.

Ahh Yes..It`s a Japanese gateway that signifies the ascendance to sacredness or Holiness..I can`t remember if it`s Chinese or Japanese..Probably the latter

And here I was thinking the last symbol is a Pi with a strikethrough. o_O

Could be the Torii symbol, but the definition marks it as simply a gateway to a Shinto temple. You can take it after from the context and try to mold it into meaning "the gateway". Which would put the meaning of the symbols something like "protection from the great disaster lies through the gateway". May mean the temple that Desmond and crew are in. Its a bit of a stretch though.

Japanese.

This might be kinda unrelated but this reminded me of it:
At the end of AC:B when Desmond & Crew reach the Apple it projects a number of symbols as well.
Then Shaun talks about two symbols coming together in only one place but just as he's about to explain, time stops, Desmond stabs Lucy and the credits roll.
Was it ever explained what Shaun meant?

It was never explained, but I speculated about it like a madman before AC 3 was announced :p The two specific symbols Shaun was talking about were the Masonic Eye and the Phrygian Cap, which only come together in one place; the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

Masonic Eye is at the very top in the center, and the Phrygian cap is the red thing on the point of the arrow directly below it. Now, this document, being a critical part of the French Revolution, obviously pointed in that direction for the next AC game, but ultimately it never amounted to anything. But who knows, there's still speculation that Connor could hop over to France in the next game, so they might still work it in.

That's actually very interesting, let's hope they don't completely drop this!

Remember that when you launch the game after 12/12/12 there is the message database down and a assassin logo for upcoming events? Thumps up for AC4 in 2013!
