Scanning a glyph

The following is a list of glyphs that are used in all Remnant decryption puzzles.

List of glyphs[edit | edit source]

Name Data Analysis Image
Accretion Glyph Approximately 0.6 ZB data packet detected This glyph's data has a spiral structure, the files organized to describe either a definitive scientific conclusion, or a model showing the formation of vast interstellar bodies. However, the spiral can be read in either direction.

Adherence Glyph Approximately 0.2 ZB data packet Curiously, this glyph's information is coded to trigger particular emotional responses through sight and sound. Though effects may vary by species, in humans, it would induce a sense of honor, devotion, or a conscious awareness of duty to a great task.

Entropy Glyph Approximately 0.3 ZB data packet This glyph appears to have suffered data corruption, but on closer inspection, the corruption is a required function of the files themselves. They describe a collapsing system via experience rather than by simply reading the files.

Hydrodynamic Glyph Approximately 0.2 ZB data packet This glyph appears to contain data on fluid dynamics, but this may also be an analogy for power or information flow. Some of its data translates as physical sensations, specifically the sense of weightlessness caused by immersion underwater or zero gravity.

Interval Glyph Approximately 0.7 ZB data packet This glyph's data has a cyclical and progressive organization, with each cycle informing the next while creating part of a greater whole. Intriguingly, some of the data is arranged so it can only ever be accessed once by a single user.

Kinetic Glyph Approximately 0.4 ZB data packet Activating particular data structures in this glyph appears to stimulate activation in others, the speed increasing exponentially. The pattern is reminiscent of shock absorption patterns in kinetic barriers.

Magnitude Glyph Approximately 0.9 ZB data packet This glyph's data contains a mathematical structure for easily describing immense measurements of volume, time, and distance. It appears whoever designed these glyphs expected to use such structures frequently.

Nihility Glyph Approximately 0.01 ZB data packet At first analysis, this glyph contains a scant amount of information, but the organizational structure suggests the data is actually describing negative space. The accompanying data is analogous to music that contains long intervals.
Nihility.png
Reflection Glyph Approximately 0.5 ZB data packet Many of the files in this glyph's data are equations that relate to quantum entanglement connections, but the data structure alters as it is accessed, mimicking the scanner's analysis programs. This appears to be essential to understanding the equations correctly.
Reflection.png
Semiosis Glyph Approximately 0.5 ZB data packet This glyph contains a massive quantity of sensation-inducing data—visual, aural, tactile, infrasound—with accompanying signs, but it's difficult to interpret without additional cultural cues. The tone appears to be one of reassurance, teaching, or historical record.

Stratospheric Glyph Approximately 0.9 ZB data packet The data of this glyph appears to be devoted to atmospheric conditions, seasonal temperature variations, and high altitude bacterial life. Some appears to be up to date, the rest appears to be predictive.

Synaptic Glyph Approximately 0.8 ZB data packet Built in a form that resembles an organic being's nervous system or megaparsec-wide galactic filaments, several data clusters in this glyph are marked as crucially important. Word fragments recovered include "somatic" or possibly "solipsistic."
Synaptic.png
Thermodynamic Glyph Approximately 0.8 ZB of data This glyph's data contains references to energy conversion or respiration: however, it may also be describing a transformation via some untranslatable process. It pays close attention to mass-energy equivalence, though the ratios are strange.

Unknown Glyph 37% Binary Code
21% Unknown data type
19% EEG/analogue baseline
It is likely that this glyph constitutes part of an alien language or code.
Reflection.png
Verdurous Glyph Approximately 0.9 ZB data packet The data in this glyph is structured via a root-stem-leaf organizational mode. It could be describing a philosophical argument taken to many conclusions, or an ecosystem laid out from bacteria to higher animals.
Verdurous.png
Zero Glyph Approximately 0.4 ZB data packet The material and conductive data in this glyph match our own readings for the functions of element zero, but at a much higher level of fluency. Possible word fragments recovered include "foundation" and "abundance."

Notes[edit | edit source]

The Unknown Glyph is only found during A Better Beginning and has the same shape as the Reflection Glyph.

The following glyph Undefined.png isn't scanned so there is no name for this glyph and SAM has no analysis on this symbol. This glyph appears in skill point puzzles in the purification vaults on Voeld/Kadara and in all of Elaaden's decryption puzzles.

Glyphs when scanned do NOT award Research Data (RD).
