The official symbol of POEE is here illustrated.  It may be this, or
any similar device to represent TWO OPPOSING ARROWS CONVERGING INTO A
COMMON POINT.  It may be vertical, horizontal, or else such, and it
may be elaborated or simplified as desired.

    The esoteric name for this symbol is THE FIVE FINGERED HAND OF
ERIS, commonly shortened to THE HAND.

NOTE:  In the lore of western magic, the /
                                         \_ is taken to symbolize
horns, especially the horns of Satan or of diabolical beasties.  The
Five Fingered Hand of Eris, however, is not intended to be taken as
satanic, for the "horns" are supported by another set of inverted
"horns."  Or maybe it is walrus tusks.  I don't know what it is, to
tell the truth.

                        "Surrealism aims at the
                   total transofmration of the mind
                      and all that resembles it."
                                           -- Breton
