LIFE SOLDIER 5000
This character named Life Soldier 5000 has a bunch of keys on its body. Those keys such as symbols or Chinese character words depicted on the body look like a group of complicated contexts, but actually there’s only one thing that this character speaks. Firstly, the “atom mark” on the front body, and a word “ATGC” (the four bases of DNA: adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine) on the helmet are the important base and beginning that consist of life. Then, Chinese characters “Bm” on the side; this word derives from Zen philosophy and means “to realize everything is in one’s hand.” In other words, to recognize “I am who I am only with I have” even if no money, poor health, and lose one you love. And “FI(space egg)” at the back is coinage of mine that means “egg of creation,” a synonym for “human being.” In addition, a word “(Infinity)” and symbol of Yin and Yang encircled by Snake Ouroboros with a winding key revolving in the center of those motifs come up with biogenic activity. The meanings of all the keys are tied up to “life,” then human being would be “Life Soldier” that survives life by powers of those keys. In that sense, this “Life Soldier 5000” is a portrait of yourself. This soldier will never stop going forward like you.
