Did you know...? - Religious symbols

In mathematics the Greek letters theta ($\theta$), phi ($\phi$) and lambda ($\lambda$) are used to describe mathematical objects. They don't have a fixed meaning though. The universe of mathematical objects is too large to establish a one-to-one mapping to the Greek alphabet. Even $\pi$ doesn't always reflect the ratio of circumference and diameter of the circle, in number theory $\pi(x)$ means the number of primes less than or equal than x, in group theory $\pi(x)$ is sometimes used as a symbol for a permutation.

Did you know that the Greek letters theta ($\theta$), phi ($\phi$) and lambda ($\lambda$) have a sacred meaning in the Scientology religion? In Scientology the symbol for the life static is the Greek letter theta ($\theta$), the symbol for the physical universe ( aka MEST in Scientoloy-speak: matter, energy, space and time) is the Greek letter phi ($\phi$) and living organisms are represented by the Greek letter lambda.

- $\theta$ = Life Static;
- $\phi$ = Physical Universe or MEST;
- $\lambda$ = Living organism.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
