Default Flower-of-Life Runes

I've put together a small page which correlates the geometry of the Flower of Life and the Elder Futhark runes. Guido von List, inventor of the Armanen Runes, saw the runes arising from the mother rune or 'ice egg' crystal, Hagalaz, but I think he was only seeing a partial picture, or focusing too much on one part. The Flower of Life seems to encompass the geometry in a way which doesn't force, constrain or remove any of the runes, and it's also interesting to note that the Flower of Life rune-matrix here is constructed of 24 smaller triangles, one for each of the runes in the elder futhark.

If you stack the runes on a single matrix, all the lines eventually become filled in, but not until DAGAZ is drawn -- that was one of those 'ah-ha' moments for me

edit: which I guess makes OTHALA like the cord that binds them altogether?

The link has died (404). Any chance of a repost?
