The ouróboros, also called uroboros, is a sign that represents a snake or a dragon in a circular shape in order to bite its own tail.

The word ouróboros comes from the Greek ουροβóρος (ourobóros) meaning "snake that eats its own tail".

Its meaning refers to the cyclical nature of things and the idea of eternal return. In this sense, both interpretations refer to the conception of existence as a cycle that always begins again, and whose continuity consists of a constant rebirth as, for example, what is observed in the cycle of the seasons of the year.

Hence, ouróboros is also associated with the cyclical nature of time, where the present instant is eternally devoured by the future instant, constituting an infinite sequence of instants that die and are reborn at every moment.

Ouróboros and history

The antiquity of the ouróboros symbol can be traced back three thousand years in human history.

In Ancient Egypt, for example, testimony of the ouróboros is kept in a hieroglyph from the burial chamber of the pyramid of Unis. Likewise, similar expressions of the ouróboros are found in Ancient Greece or in Norse mythologies.

In this sense, a myth related to the ouroboros is that of Sisyphus, a Greek mythological character condemned to the underworld, whose punishment consisted of the painful task of pushing a rock uphill to the top of a mountain, which, when it was about to reach the top, rolled back down to the foot of the mountain, forcing Sisyphus to start his work again, and so on for eternity.

The ouroburos was also used by ancient alchemists to represent their quests for eternity as, for example, in the desire to find the universal panacea or the philosopher's stone.
