Re: Freedom under threat again 

Absolutely bro; beautifully orated. 

The symbolism hidden in the building of our dome-like fale Samoa was in reference to the Cosmos (The Divine presence of the Universe or God) or the circle 360 degrees of the Zodiac.

As with the two pillars or the two posts; Boaz and Joaquin (The lamb of God) “ Aeries the Ram.” the first house of the Zodiac in the temple of Solomon in the scriptures (The Soul of Man) Olo’o teu ai Tofa male Utaga is not literal but literary and a metaphorical story pertaining to our bodies. 

“The temple that wasn’t built by hand.” That God dwell in us. 

It reminds me of our own district of Faleata, “ole fale o tama na ato i ata.” is a symbolic story about nature. Thanks for the beautiful comment.
