This thread is here to allow people to understand how trasmutation circles work, and how they channel the energy into this world. let's start with Alphonse's seal
ignore the outside ring and the 'squiggle' coming down and you have the symbol for creation, while the 'squiggle' is actually a symbol for the soul, so basically, it means a created soul. this is core to the series as alphonse's existence is questioned throughout the early parts of the series, even his shortened name as spoken in japanese 'Aru' is displaying this, as 'aru' means to exist in japanese, but as an object, while 'iru' is reserved for people in this manner.
if anyone else wants a different transmutation circle explained feel free to post a request with either a picture of the circle, or a description of where it is found and who uses it.
These 4 elements build the world we live in. in transmutation circles these are used for two things: 1:controlling the element 2:looking AWESOME Get your own transmutation circle made by posting a request on the thread here If you have attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this in your signature.

@Reaction Alchemist - I merged your post. It's all right (actually, recommended) to use "+EDIT" button at the bottom right part of your post and add your new content to your previous post, if your last post on the thread was the lastly posed post of that thread. Also...

From what I understand, this thread is for Nature Path Alchemist to kindly help our members understand, with his knowledge, how Alchemy circles we see in FMA work, and not a thread for testing his knowledge by challenging him to decipher whatever the alchemy circles we find on the Web. If possible, please stick to discussing about FMA alchemy circles. Else, as suggested by Nature Path Alchemist, please post it in Fanworks forum. (Besides, if you already know the meaning of these circles you posted, please go ahead and POST and EXPLAIN how they work. And then, maybe you can ask Nature Path Alchemist his opinion on those or if he has anything to add? Perhaps that would be more courteous and productive way to share the knowledge. )
