About the name Ouroboros

"The problems in the world today are so enormous they cannot be solved with the level of thinking that created them."

Albert Einstein





The name Ouroboros is of Greek origin and is derived from the ancient symbol of a serpent or dragon devouring its own tail. Found in Asia, Egypt, Europe and the Americas, it symbolised wisdom and the continuity of cycles. It has also been thought to symbolise the rise and fall of great civilisations as they disappear and reappear throughout time.
