Derek K. Nielsen's
comes from the Greek word doria meaning one from the sea. Nielsen placed
a cross in the middle of doria to create a new word of profound signification.
The cross embodies the numbers two and four. Take the symbol for one,
split it in half then overlap the pieces perpendicular to each other.
In essence this is humanity trapped in a split world where everything
is in duality. For everything there is an opposite. Take the human body
for instance, split into two parts; two arms, two legs, two nostrils,
two eyes, etc. There are even two strands of DNA to replicate this body
mired in dualism, a body that comes from the sea.
