The proportions of were <br />fixed based on a 5x5 diagonal grid.Characteristic is the 90° rotational symmetry (that is, the symmetry of<br />the cyclic group C4h) and chirality, hence the absence of reflectional<br />symmetry, and the existence of two versions of &apos;X&apos; that are each <br />other&apos;s mirror image.The mirror-image forms are often described as:clockwise and counterclockwise;left-facing and right-facing;left-hand and right-hand.<br />An explanation for &apos;X&apos; origin is suggested by Carl Sagan in his book<br />Comet, proposing that the symbol was inspired by a comet approaching<br />Earth closely enough that the jets of gas streaming from it, bent by the<br />comet&apos;s rotation, became visible. This explanation has found <br />some adherents among catastrophists. What is &apos;X&apos;?<br />
  28. 28. Swastika<br />
  29. 29. 14. 0:00 -2:10  begins with the fading-in of a dense G-minor synthesizer pad created with <br />EMS VCS 3, an ARP Solina, a Hammond organ and the sound of wet fingers running around the<br /> rims of wine glasses filled with various amounts of water (recycled from an earlier project <br />known as Household Objects). This is followed by plaintive Minimoog passages.<br />2:10 – 3:54 begins a lengthy guitar solo played by X on a Fender Stratocaster (neck pickup)<br /> using a heavily compressed sound and reverb. The harmony changes from G minor to D minor<br /> at 2:29, then to C minor, and back to G minor. This is repeated again, and the part ends<br /> with the synth pad fading into the background.<br />3:55 – 6:27 begins with a four-note theme (B-flat, F, G (a minor third below the B-flat), E) <br />repeated throughout much of the entire section. This theme leads the harmony to C major <br />(in comparison to the use of C minor in Parts I and II), and this is because the last note is E <br />(and not E-flat). This part includes a second solo by X. Y starts his drumming after the fourth <br />run-through of the four-note theme, which is the point where the riffs get into a fixed tempo, <br />in 6/4 time with the accents on the first and fourth beat.<br />6:28 – 8:42 begins with a Minimoog synthesizer solo by W. This part includes a third X guitar<br /> solo which is bluesy in tone.<br />8:43 – 13:30  Z is on lead vocals, with X, W and female backing vocalists on harmonies. This is<br /> followed by two guitars repeating an arpeggio riff for about a minute. A baritone saxophone <br />overlays the sounds, played by Dick Parry. It ends as the saxophone changes from a <br />baritone saxophone to a tenor saxophone. After, a time signature switch from 6/4 to 12/8 <br />creates the appearance that the tempo speeds up, though the arpeggio guitar part remains unchanged,<br /> in the background. The sax solo is accompanied by an ARP string synthesizer keyboard sound.<br />Identify W,X,Y,Z and what is being described above.<br />(10<br />+10<br />+10<br />+10<br />+10)<br />
