ChessboardMath7 about asymmetry refers to CVXV. CMXV quotes the ''As above, so below'' of Egyptian Hermes, anticipator of christianity. I think the real theme here is ''is chess, caissa, the game of the goddess?'' And also it extends the 7 to the 7 who have the long-range view mankind lacks: Falcon F, Lamb P, Horse S, Elephant B, Lion and Scorpion Roi, Hawk Queen, Serpent Rook. Too many mixings of metaphors compared to nearby CMs. Again, newcomers after Gilmanesque mythological takeover will never have seen these uncommented its 5 years since they are not a game.
