recently I visited a location near to where I wanted to move to an found a lot of symbols, but I am not sure on what they are. I have come here in the hope of finding out what sort of symbols are used by yourselves and what their purpose and meaning is.

My appologies if this is the wrong place to post this. I am far to curious for my own good, but then if I wasn't how would I become educated

They look like sigils made along the lines of Austin Spare: phrasing the meaning in one concise sentence, removing all repeating letters, and combining the remaining letters into one symbol. Akin to a bind rune.

In which case there is really no way of knowing the original intent.

The lower left symbol looks like it was traced over a letter grid.

I concur. This scchool of thought often times uses this technique to inscribe talismans. They mean something to the designer, and unless you have the original intent and words, you can't tell what is being portrayed.
