Explanation of track names / symbols:
01 - Inverted Ankh (that's what it is - the Egyptian symbol for man which got corrupted into the crucifix - but upside down).
02 - Plastic
03 - I think Sex would be more accurate, but everyone else is using Male so why not?
04 - Ohm
05 - 5 (these three are obviously from numerology, although actually all the tracks are releated to their numbers somehow)
06 - 6
07 - 7
08 - SPQR (by the order of the senate and people of Rome - used to sign edicts and sentences)
09 - Fish (early christian symbol for Jesus)
10 - Malcuth - the root of the tree of life in the caballah - that whole track is based on caballistic bits, as is a lot of the album
11 - Isis - that's a chair / throne, and its the hieroglyph for the goddess Isis
12 - Nothing - the track has no name, and appears as a gap in the list of symbols
13 - Eye
Artifakt - Plastic
"I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Are you listening?
"There's a great future in plastics"
From 'The Graduate'
Artifakt - 6
"Six is the sign of the Devil"
"For everything holy, there is something unholy. That is the essence of temptation."
From 'The Omen'
Artifakt - Eye
"if only you could see what I've seen with your eyes"
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die. "
From 'Blade Runner'
