Eh… I played around with it… honestly it is a neat idea, but most of the things I entered came out looking uninteresting.

This is 2020. Stop and think. Is this really the time to chance it?

My ‘sigil for protection against stupidity’ turned out ridiculously complex and unreproducible.

Great. Now everything I look at is a banana.
You’ll be hearing from my attorney, who also happens to look like a banana.

Entering the same text twice produced two different sigils; they must be time-sensitive. So don’t try using your sigil at the wrong moment, or it won’t work.

I noticed that too. Again, neat idea, but I probably can do some random ones myself if needed.

Yeah, this was disappointing. I was really hoping it’d be deterministic.

This is covered in the FAQ - they use various metrics from your typing to ensure that sigils don’t repeat (similar to how the design of a hand-made sigil would vary if created at different times or in different states of mind).

I dunno…the consequences of a bug in this program could be of Ghostbusters proportions…

For those playing around, note this:

  1. What will you do with all the Sigils that are created?

Eventually we plan to project them on to well known landmarks to hypercharge them. We collect the intentions and data points that make up the sigils. We do not collect any personal identifying information at all.

On that note

Erase this data:

I still wish they’d use the metrics from typing to modify it in subtle ways (shifting the circles in small amounts), rather than picking entirely new locations / order for the circles and lines. That’d give you a personal sigil that could still be recognized by others ‘in the know.’
