A look at the curves of the baybayin symbol of O-U shows that it looks a lot like the roman numeral “3”.
What’s really fun to see is that our baybayin of O-U is very similar to the sanskrit symbol variations for O, AU, U, UH, UU, OO:
There’s a likely that our baybayin symbol for O-U is related to these sanskrit versions and may have originated from Sanskrit writing.
The baybayin symbol of O-U is also found in the devnagari symbol of Om.
and the Bangla symbol of Om.
Now take a look at the meaning of the strokes in the symbol of OM.
According to scholars, every stroke in the devnagari symbol for Om has a meaning about the 4 states of consciousness.
So if we were to refer to ancient sanskrit philosophy and tradition, the strokes of the baybayin symbol for O-U mean two states of human consciousness—Deep Sleep (state of unconsciousness, living in maya/illusion) and Waking (state of higher consciousness, seeing through the illusions of maya).
