Symbols - What does heaven look like

Mem

Mem (also spelled Meem or Mim) is the thirteenth letter of many Semitic abjads, including Phoenician, Aramaic, Hebrew  and Arabic.  The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek Mu, Etruscan Mu, Latin M, and Cyrillic Mu. In the traditional Jewish system of assigning numerical value to a word letter or phrase, Mem is usually assigned the number 40 [this system has a relationship to musical scales too because of the songlines]. 

Symbolically it is equivalent to Water, or perhaps more precisely the Intelligence presiding over the entire Water level and layer.
